(During March, I am blogging daily as a part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge!) Special thanks to the hosts of the Slice of Life Challenge: Stacey, Tara, Dana, Betsy, Anna and Beth. More Slice of Life posts can be found at Two Writing Teachers .
Kudos to the fabulous team at Two Writing Teachers and all the support that they assembled for this challenge! Being a part of a community like this makes it “easier” to continue on each day! Thanks to both Stacey Shubitz, SOLSC14, and Anna Gratz Cockerille, Classroom SOLSC14, for their great “Be Inspired” ideas! Thanks to the support team as well. I had many questions for Elsie and her supportive responses soothed my apprehensions!
I jumped into this challenge because of two twitter friends, Julieanne Harmatz (AKA @jarhartz ) who blogs at “To Read To Write To Be” and Catherine Flynn (AKA @flynn_catherine) who blogs at “Reading to the Core.” Check out the past slices on the blogs of these two talented ladies!
Thanks to all “Slicers” who read and commented on my blog during the “Slice of Life Challenge.” Special thanks to those who commented a LOT including: Julieanne, Tara, Catherine, Anna, Elsie, Stacey and Carol.
Writing every day for a month has helped me continue to work on my own writing. I will reflect on forms and topics tomorrow in my final post for the month. It’s possible that I will join “Slice of Life Tuesday” or another regular weekly posting. I must do some work on my calendar to determine feasibility over the next couple of months as I modify an online graduate course and also plan for summer work. This month has shown me, again, how important it is to both respond to other bloggers and/or tweet out their links. The connections in the community are THE BEST!
But most importantly, this Slice of Life Challenge has confirmed my belief that teachers of writing must also be writers!
