The March Slice of Life Challenge is hosted by Stacey and Ruth at Two Writing Teachers
Well, here we are, the last slice of the March Challenge. I first want to thank Stacey and Ruth for giving us a chance to “meet” this way as a writing community. Even though the last few days were particularly challenging, I came away from this experience feeling so enriched by the efforts of other writers – through their writing, and through the comments they left on my writing. Writing is, by its very nature, a solitary endeavor. But the March Challenge allows us an instant audience, and for the space of that month of taking our writing public, it becomes a community effort. In the daily thought process of generating an idea about something to slice about, I revisited notebooks and explored crannies in my memories – I became a more methodical and deliberate writer. So thank you, Stacey and Ruth, for giving me the chance to practice the craft of writing with a built-in cheering team – all of those who read and responded to my slices.
