Today marks my 1 year anniversary of blogging. Of being part of the challenge put on by Two Writing Teachers. Of Slicing about my life. Yikes! A whole year of writing from a girl who has never considered herself a writer.
If someone asked me a year ago if I would succeed and blog daily for 31 days straight, I would have said “Umm….maybe. I’m certainly going to try. That’s A LOT of writing.” If someone asked me at the end of those 31 days (which I did succeed at) if I would continue to blog every Tuesday and from now one, I would have said “Possibly but doubtful it’ll be EVERY week.”
And here I am today having blogged every day in the month of March in 2018 and every Tuesday since then. Who am I?!?
I heard once that writers need time, choice and response to succeed in their work. By doing this challenge I have seen how true that is. However, the one that keeps me going the most is the response. This community of slicers respond. They give me the push to keep blogging weekly. I look forward to their responses, and of course, reading the happenings in their lives. Their responses force me to find the time to write about anything of my choice each week.
So here’s to 1 year down and many more to come (hopefully)!
