For the last five years Stacey and Ruth at Two Writing Teachers have hosted a yearly month-long Slice of Life challenge. This challenge is near and dear to my heart. It’s where I really entered the world of blogging. Starting tomorrow I will be slicing for 31 days straight. Every day in the month of March.
Why do I do it?
Well not because it’s easy, because it isn’t. I do it to better myself as a writer. I do it to be a part of a community. Some of these slicers have been with me through thick and thin, including last year when my poor dog lost his tail. I look forward to catching up with them and to finding new friends to slice with as well. I do it to remember what it’s like to not have anything to write about so that I can be a more compassionate teacher. I do it to set an example for my students. I do it to remember my life, because slicing every day helps you capture the little moments and I relish going back and rereading my old posts years later. I do it because it’s good for me. I should do more things like that. So tomorrow I slice.
I’ve created a special blog just for this challenge. Please join me!
