I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
Can I Celebrate too? It's the weekend, and really I've been looking forward to March Slice of Life Challenge for awhile. I'm so happy to be slicing again! A streak of writing is just what my brain needs! A streak of connection and reflection... I also need a running streak. . . Maybe April! Thanks Ruth Ayres for this wonderful link up!
It’s March. March! I sit at my dining room table watching snow fall. I am trite and boring: Last March seems like a decade ago, but also yesterday. Time flies. You can’t go back in time. The years are short but the days are long. Was it really a year ago that I did the slice challenge? March better leave like a lamb. I’m tired of snow. Was March always like this? It must be. I checked my own blog. I found this. So, Yes.
I’m worried this month, that my second March Slice a day challenge will be tougher than last year. I’m worried I have nothing new to say, that I will accidentally rewrite things I’ve already written. I’m trying to rein in my expectations. Is this your first time with the March challenge? What do you expect?
I expect blank screens, I expect to hit delete try new formats enjoy the poetry of words I will google words I should know to make sure I'm spelling them right using them right and basically not sounding like an idiot. I will sometimes bore myself: select all, delete. I will make typos, I will go back and edit -- From my phone Which will be annoying. I will think about slices all day, I will be closely reading my day and weeding for appropriate meaningful tiny tales to tell. I will submit way too many slices at 11:57 pm, and just a few in the middle of the day. Hurray! (in advance for those successful days) I will get excited to see comments, and I will reply. I will read other bloggers' slices and be inspired, and more often than I care to admit, I will be jealous of their articulation. I will annoy you, I'm sure with my line breaks and, my commas (and my dogmas) I expect I will grow as a writer I will be fired up about the connections The new blogs The routine The slices all around.
Happy March, Slicers!
