Top Ten

Top Ten Things I Love about SOLC:

1.  The comments!  They re really the most important thing for me as a writer right now I desperately need the motivation and connections.

2. The new friendships I feel as if Ive known many of you all my life and I am grateful for getting to know new writers this year.

3. The opportunity to exercise my writing muscle I dont do this by my own volition at present, so this challenge presents an opportunity to improve my skills

4.  The opportunity to be consciously introspective and to be present in the moment

5.  The awareness of the small moments in our daily life that should not be overlooked

6.  The inspiration this challenge provides to broaden the way I use writing in my life

7.  The chance to read and comment on fellow slicers posts it has been a privilege to be invited into your lives, share your experiences, marvel at your creativity

8.  The connections to other writing and reading challenges that I might join

9.  Support, affirmation, kindness, gratitude, challenges, motivation, welcome

10.  The promise of another SOLC in a year

Thank you to Stacey and all her team.  Year Three was NOT the easiest year for me as a writer I often struggled and I dont feel my writing was at its best.  But, I persevered it is a CHALLENGE after all.  I hope to continue on Tuesdays but Ive made that promise before without much success.

Thank you to all fellow slicers you enriched my life this month.
I appreciate you all more than you will know.

Heres to a beautiful spring (may the snow stop for those of you who are still buried in it), and a relaxing summer.

Until next year

Quotes of the day:

“The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye...until we meet again”

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.  ~Ivy Baker Priest


  1. Super list. It has been a pleasure to be on this journey together. Come and visit on Tuesdays, even if not on every Tuesday. It helps with the writing muscle, and with keeping in touch in this community.

  2. Great list...and comments as number one is where I would put it. This was just my second year, but so glad I decided to try it again. Some days I was satisfied with my posts...other days were not so good...but that is just the way life is...right? Hope to see you one Tuesdays.

  3. Amen to Spring - and to all your thoughts about the challenge, you spoke for me, as well!

  4. Comments do make a difference, glad you stuck it out all month. Now the next challenge is can you fit it in on Tuesdays? If not all, just once in a while. I'll still be watching for you.
