And so it begins- 31 days of writing daily slices for this annual challenge. This will be my third year of participating and it has been a very interesting, enjoyable journey.
I have decided to use the Slice of Life acrostic form again this year. Last year I wrote one at the end of March, as a summary of what I had achieved.(after being inspired by Barbara Suter last year – there were so many inspiring stories, ideas and inspirations last year!)
This time though, I thought I’d begin with the acrostic as a way to reflect on what I want to achieve and what it means to me.
S Slice of Life March begins today!
L Let’s share our stories and come together as a community of writers
I I’m definitely looking forward to this daily challenge.
C Challenges really do help us grow, making us accountable but with support
E Everyone has stories to tell – we can all learn from each other.
O One slice a day, 31 in all, by the end of March.
F For one month, we will share our stories; then connect with others by reading theirs
L Life stories, that tell a little snippet of who we are, what we do or what we like
I It’s a wonderful way to learn from others and get to know so many
F For some it will be stories, remembrances or even poems or lists.
E Every time we share a slice, we share ourselves with a community of committed story-tellers – connecting us, changing us, growing our writing.
Welcome everyone – looking forward to a rewarding, writerly month!
