Day 1 ~ March SOLSC
Can I commit to doing the story challenge this year? I have so much more on my plate – will it be possible? I really do enjoy writing every day and reading other people’s, but will I be able to keep up?
All of these thoughts were going through my head as March started to creep up. I have a little extra on my plate this time around (stay tuned for a post about that). I don’t like to commit to something and come up short (personality trait!). I know it’s not the end of the world if I end up missing a day of my own writing (I can still show up and read and comment on others). I was really on the fence. But I just said to myself “sign up and see what happens.”
I filled out the form and promised myself that I would do my best and see what happens. And then, I got an email asking if I wanted to be a part of the Welcome Wagon again. I didn’t hesitate as much with this commitment though – filled out the form right after getting the email. I think knowing that I’m making a commitment to others is more motivating to me than just doing something for myself. Perhaps that’s something I need to work on, but for now I’m excited to show up, read my first timers’ posts as well as the posts from the other writers I’ve “met” over the past few years I’ve been doing this challenge.
Happy Slicing everyone! Can’t wait to read and write all month.
I’m participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge! Thank you to the team of writers at Two Writing Teachers for this wonderful writing community. A place for us to grow together as writers.
