Two Writing Teachers
She called them "The Slicers."
"Yeah. Uh-huh. That sounds nice," I said.
Then she talked about how she was becoming such a better writer and thinker. She gushed about her new writing community.
"Writing community?" I thought. "Oh - I can't be part of that. I'm a big talker, but I'm no writer!"
Fast forward to last year, March 2012. Michelle encourages Lynn at school to try slicing. Lynn has started a blog and writes pretty often.
I ask Lynn if she's going to slice. She's not feeling confident about writing every day, but she decides to join.
I'm still not convinced that I can do it. Where will I find the time?
I visited Ruth & Stacey's website. I clicked around. I stalked other slicers in February.
I jumped in with both feet. I was nervous. I was unsure of my ability to write something that would make sense. I worried that no one would read or comment.
What happened after 31 straight days of writing?
I found a community where everyone is valued. I made connections. I found my voice.
I'm excited for all the first-time slicers... get ready for a month you won't forget!
We're so glad you're here!
P.S. Thanks, Michelle and Lynn for your ability to listen, hold me accountable, and your friendship!! XOXO
P.P.S. Thanks to Ruth and Stacey for giving us a place to become a community of writers!
