Each Tuesday of this new year has come and gone. All seven of them. I was able to squeeze in three slices in January. Life has been busy.
I've been living in all the BIG moments. Home and school consuming every moment. Life is good, but busy. Always on the go just being busy.
I thought about writing. I wanted to write. I would open up my laptop. Then my eyes would close. This whole balancing life is difficult.
And, therefore, time, energy, and my story did not coincide.
"But here I come," I hear March whispering in my ear.
And that means the challenge of writing, not just on Tuesdays, but every day. Searching for those small moments worth sharing. Noticing, watching, holding on, jotting words ... that will become slices of life.
I'm excited about living in the small moments of life again.
So, I need to take some of my own advice. Two years ago, I shared some tips and tricks for a successful March of writing. This will be my seventh March Slice of Life Story Challenge. I'm ready to open my notebook (or my notes on my phone these days), open my eyes, ears, and heart to the little moments that make up my days.
And that starts with warming up with writing today. The eighth Tuesday of 2017.
Each day matters. Each day is full of stories -- small moments -- that are a piece of me and make me who I am. I'm ready to jump in and begin writing again. Those small moments are what I'm looking forward to.
Are you ready for the challenge? Do you have any other tips of inspiration?
