Ode to My Fellow Slicers

“Endings are not always a bad thing, it just means that something new can begin.” ~ Unknown

We have come to the end of the 31 day Slice of Life Challenge. It feels good to have accomplished this feat, yet a relief that it is over. Being a part of this challenge and interacting with so many kind and thoughtful writers is a gift I give myself each March. I hope that this is the beginning of a year filled with writing and building on the ideas I have found or started this month. Thank you for your support, kind words, and fine example. Hope to see you on Tuesdays!

Ode to My Fellow Slicers

The month of March has come to an end,

to my fellow Slicers my thanks I send.

Challenged to write a post every day,

when I was blocked you showed me the way.

You inspired me to stretch and grow,

learned more from you than you’ll ever know.

With your feedback I have seen the light.

I’m sad to say that it ends tonight!

  1. This is a lovely ode, Rita.There is a sadness in the “last post” – at least of this challenge! There’s so much more writing ahead for us all – your poem really speaks to the importance of writing in community. We are stronger, go farther, because of one another. Many thanks to you!

  2. Thank you Rita! I’m both sad and thankful. Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesdays. I haven’t been able to keep the Tuesday slicing consistent. Apparently I work better under the pressure of slicing daily. But I’m going to try really hard to show up every Tuesday, be inspired by others, and share my own writing.

  3. Thank you, Rita for articulating what I was having trouble saying in my post. I do think that response is key, and writing for an audience is worth the effort. Glad to have had a connection with you this month.
