This will be the second year of taking part in March Slice of Life. This wonderful challenge, of writing a slice of life each day in March, is hosted at “Two Writing Teachers“.
Last year’s posts took place on my art blog “Bunny’s Girl”. This year, as writing has begun to take more of a centre stage, I have started this new blog, focusing more on writing. As you can see, I have a ways to go in its creation. I hope this month it will grow and morph into what I am imagining it to be.
February is past and hopefully with it, those feelings of not being good enough. I started 2014 with the desire to write and to be published. My word of the year was “embrace” and i wanted to embrace that desire to write. So, throughout January I wrote almost daily. I took part in some challenges and joined several groups. By the end of February, the doubts had begun and I slowed down with my writing. (The polar weather we have been experiencing hasn’t helped!)
A picture book I had written and submitted was panned and critiques I had had done on several chapters of two romance novels pointed to much revision.
But reading writers’ blogs and posts on their journeys has helped me to refocus on what matters. The advice “it’s the journey not the destination, that matters most” really resonates with me. I know I have to keep writing every day.
This daily ‘Slice of Life” challenge will help (and maybe some spring weather as well!)
