What I’ll Miss

#sol22- 30 March

A few of my students have been enjoying writing the morning message- today it began, “It is almost the end of March. Did that go fast or was it because February was soooooo slow?” That inspired me to write a little farewell to March (admittedly a little early).

Dear March,

I will miss the predictability of slicing every day, knowing I will “read” old friends’ words and discover new gems. I will miss looking for inspiration in the everyday.

I will not miss the feeling of disappointing myself- either when I wish I commented more or when I really knew my writing was meh. I will not miss the decline of my reading life, nor the pressure I put myself under as I refuse to draft ahead. I won’t miss feeling stuck.

I will miss the community, the surprising connections, the fun of reading comments, the amazing storytellers, and the many new ideas I have collected.

You were a long month in many ways, but I know the hard work will help me grow. April will bring on new challenges, so the story side may quiet, but never be snuffed out.

Enjoy the last little bit of March.

  1. I love your reflections in the form of a friendly letter written to March. Great idea! Slice of Life is great but time-consuming. I wish I had more time to read and comment. I always learn so much here. Slice of life experience never disappoints!

  2. I have enjoyed reading your posts, and I am honored that you have read some of mine. I take comfort in knowing I am not the only one who has struggled to find the time to read and comment as much as I would like–partly because of the project of writing, and partly because I have made so many friends and wish to support them as they have supported me. I have subscribed to your blog, so I will keep reading even after the challenge ends. Thank you for your posts.

  3. Well put! I also am anticipating missing searching for a slice each day. I know I could still reflect, but how I love this slicing challenge. It was fun to read posts and see familiar blogs from last year as well!
