I woke up this morning knowing it is the first of March, but finding it very hard to believe all the same. Today marks the second Sunday of Lent, a month until Easter (and Spring Break!), the week leading up to the Iditarod, March Book Madness, and just over a week until my birthday. All of those things are huge, but even more so is the commencement of the March Slice of Life Challenge, which is probably why most of you are reading this.
There are many of us on this journey together. A month of writing and reading, commenting and bonding the world over. Sometimes our words are brilliant and sometimes we will just be trying to get something down before the stroke of midnight. If you have been on this journey before, welcome back. If it is your first time WELCOME! Know that we all understand the commitment and challenges that come with joining the March SOLSC. We are in this together. For me, it is not just how I grow as I writer that keeps me a 'slicing', but the community of writers who are a part of it.
And so we begin!
