March 1st has arrived

March as arrived and with it the Slice of Life Story Challenge! Although this challenge has been around for a while, it is my very first time to participate.  For the past few Tuesdays I've been "slicing" to prepare...but now the month-long daily writing challenge has actually begun and I must say I'm equal parts excited and nervous.

I love writing.  I always have.  I just get nervous wondering if I'll be able to keep up the pace. Gonna give it my best shot anyhow and that has got to count for something, right? I'm hoping that this will help me to create a very positive habit of daily writing that will eventually help me to finish one of the two novels-in-progress I've been working on for quite some time.

I'll end today's post with a wish for good luck for all of us who are participating in the challenge!


  1. Yeah welcome!!! This is my 7th year. Some years went better then others. Can't wait to read more of your slices.

  2. Yes, thanks for cheering us on. It is a stretch, but, last year I found it was well worth the effort.
    I phased out some things like playing Words with Friends and reading the NY Times to make room for writing. Because, really, it's what I want to do.
