Coming Soon: Slice of Life

The countdown to Slice of Life begins.  Friday, March 1st, is the official start of the Slice of Life Event.    Last year was my first year to participate.  I felt like I was training for a marathon.  It took much work to keep up the pace, but the rewards were plentiful.  There was some satisfaction in a story, poem, or quick piece crafted and published.  Of course, keeping up with reading the posts of others was as much a challenge as writing.

This year I've wrestled a bit with whether to commit or not as I feel my schedule is tighter than last year at this time.  I've been back and forth with myself quite a bit over the last few weeks.  Today this post at Two Writing Teachers caught my attention as if to remind me that I do indeed have the time for the challenge:  YOU HAVE THE TIME TO WRITE.  As Ruth wrote, "Writing is one of those things that gives much more than it takes."  So I'm in.

How 'bout you?
