SOLSC #1 What will happen?

I am participating in the
March 2018 Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC).
All participants are writing about one moment, one part of their day, every day for thirty-one days.
A big thank you to Two Writing Teachers for providing this unique opportunity
for teacher-writers to share and reflect.

Here I go again!

I believe this is my seventh year of participating in the March SOLSC. I am so appreciative of Two Writing Teachers for this fun opportunity! Each year, I am surprised to find something new to write about each day (it seems to magically happen), I am astounded by how this simple act of daily writing makes me more present and alert all day long, as I mine every moment for possible material in a slice, and I am awed – absolutely awed - by what I read in and learn from other blogs. It is a fabulous month of writing.

That being said - this is likely to be a year that I don’t quite complete the writing challenge. I am traveling on three special trips, one of which is a 30th anniversary trip to Costa Rica with my dear husband at the very end of March. So, just sayin’! I’m going to give this year’s March SOLSC a good try,  and I will squeeze out all the joy and learning that I can, but I am also going to forgive myself if I write less than 31 slices.

Here’s to the challenge! Welcome to all the new Slicers!! Happy March!! Write on!!

  1. I'm not traveling this spring break, so I will try to post every day. And I'm a bit jealous of that Costa Rica trip you have planned.

  2. We are so excited! We have never been. Didn't you celebrate a big anniversary last year?
