I was thrilled that I was able to stop in the #SOL16 Twitter chat tonight.  It's the connection that I needed to get me excited about the March Slice of Life Story Challenge coming up ... quickly!

Amazingly, I started this little blog six years ago.  It was going to be home to my thoughts and reflections about school life.  And there is some of that, but life is more than just about school!

I do my best to balance school life with home life with my husband and twin five and a half year old daughters.  There are stories at school and there are stories at home.  What I've learned is that my blog is dedicated to writing ...

Writing the stories in my heart.
Writing to savor moments.
Writing to live again.
Writing to share.
Writing to write.
Writing to make me hApPy!

Last year I wrote a little list of tips to prepare for the March SOL Challenge.  Thanks to Carrie, I was reminded of this little list, that I must say, is quite helpful!



Are you ready to join the challenge? Are you ready to write every day for 31 days? Are you ready to live the life of a writer? Are you ready to be BRAVE and write about what makes your heart beat?  

I hope you will be joining in! Let me know if you'll be writing this March.  Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  We are here to help YOU join in and feel confident in this amazing adventure.  You won't regret it.  I promise!

  1. Dang! I had a class tonight and missed the twitter chat! But I'm definitely looking forward to slicing with everyone again this year. And I think you should get out your tips and put them out there for everyone to read. Maybe TWT would like to put it out sometime in the next couple of weeks.

  4. Loved "seeing" you tonight and "hearing" your comments at the twitter chat. I reviewed your tips and I'm really going to set up my slices ahead of time this year! Anything that can help me beat the 9:00 west coast deadline is helpful.

  5. Entering into the challenge takes my breath away with the wonder can I do it again. But once the month starts the energy carries me forward. Your writing is always a factor in that energy. I want to write poems like Michelle! :-) Once again, looking forward to your words!

  9. Hey Michelle,
    Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm after the Twitter chat especially because I missed it, and your ten tips! I'm getting more and more excited about this as the days go on. I'm trying to figure out how to get my kids to participate during our spring break, which comes right smack in the middle of the month. Ah! Challenges, challenges!
