Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for creating a space for me to share my corner of the world.
When I tell people that I am participating in my 4th March Slice of Life Story Challenge, I get asked, "Every day? How can you find time to do that?" I tell them it is not easy, but it is worth it.
I recently read a post, "The Long Term Results of a Faithful Writing Life" from Ann Kroeker, a writing coach. She says:
"Anything worth doing will ideally be something that also makes life worth living.
I’ve concluded writing is worth doing and is part of what makes life worth living."
Writing has changed me. I look for the small things. I notice more. I pay attention. This writing community has changed me. It welcomed me and has given me support and encouragement for almost four years. It has given me a place to show up every week and build a faithful writing life.
And when I have a faithful writing life, I find the words.
I find the story.
Tomorrow the challenge begins.
May we all continue to be faithful because yes, it is worth it.
