Join the Two Writing Teachers blog for March Slice of Life Challenge.
Here we are, writing friends, on the last day of another March Slice of Life writing challenge. We made it!
There were some writing days that went well…there were some that were rocky…and then there was one that just did not go. Writing is like that.
With each March Challenge, I learn something important about myself as a writer and (more importantly) as a writing teacher. I learn something about “having to write” – which is, let’s face it, what I ask my students to do every day they walk into my classroom. I learn something about putting something “on the page” and working to craft it into something readable, something meaningful. I learn that sometimes the words I write don’t quite measure up to what I’d hoped, but I can always return someday to revise.
And I learn about the importance of the constant and encouraging support of a writing community. Each day, you were here to read, leave words to show you’d read, and in doing so you left hope for tomorrow as another writing day.
So, on this last day of our March Challenge…I thank you, the Slice of Life writing community. You kept me going, you really did. And for that, I am abundantly grateful.
