I feel like this popular saying for the month of March matches well with my Slice of Life writing habits. I started out strong, never missing a day, but in the last week I’ve teetered out a little bit.
For my first Slice of Life, I feel like I’ve learned a lot. I originally chose to participate because I wanted to do what I ask of my students. For the past two Aprils, my students have participated in Script Frenzy, which challenges students to write a script in 30 days and write everyday. I wanted to introduce it this year and say to them, “I did it! I wrote everyday in March.” While I didn’t write everyday, I learned the challenge. I also really enjoyed sitting down each evening and reflecting on my day and asking myself, “What stood out to me today?” or “What do I remember?” I used to (in college) write every single day, and I wanted the challenge again.
Thanks Slice of Life for the challenge, lessons, comments, and fun!
