Day 31

I’m going to be honest. I only did this challenge to fulfill my publishing requirements for the Abydos Writing Institute that I’ve been doing since July. At first, I figured that I would just write a few blogs and be done. Boy was I wrong! I got hooked! I’ve never considered myself much of a writer, but after completing this challenge I definitely call myself a writer now!

Before this challenge, I would write lesson plans, on Abydos Days, and… that’s it. Now, I feel like writing is here to stick. Maybe not every day, but definitely more than I was doing. I am so thankful for the Slice of Life March Challenge for pushing my limits! There were days when I felt like I should just not and then my reminder to post would go off and I would try to find at least six words to publish.

Thank you to everyone who read all of my ramblings that turned into something publishable!

  1. Congratulations!!!! So glad this challenged hooked you. I appeciate learning where you learned of it and googled Abydos, an organization new to me. I am Sally, a a teacher in VA for the past 28 years and 8 years ago, I learned of this challenge and was teaching writing to 4th graders and thought I’d give it a try. I remember how exhausting I felt that year, trying to figure out what to write each day. But also like you, I got lots of energy out of posting, reading and commenting. It hooked me and has for the past 8 years. This year, I volunteered to be on the Welcome Wagon and happily was assigned you! I apology for not daily reading and then reading 4 in a row and leaving a cascade of comments. Not sure if that helped to keep you going. This pandemic has messed with my focus so my daily time as a slicer became limited this year. So even now, you are getting this a day late. Sorry. But still know I sincerely enjoyed reading your slices. So glad we “met” here. I’ll look for you on any Tuesday during the year and definitely next March.
