Since this is the second year I have been a participant in this challenge, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about last year and what being a part of this writing community meant to me. I needed a push to get started, but once I got going, I looked forward to writing every day, discovering what others were writing and thinking, and reading the comments left for me. Last week I geared up for the challenge by rereading all my posts from last March – some were good, some not so good, many were surprising. I’ve tried here to sum up my thinking by borrowing the scaffold used by Rob Gonsalves in his books Imagine a Day, Imagine a Night, Imagine a Place, and Imagine a World.
Imagine… finding stories in your everyday routines.
Imagine…seeing the world through wide awake eyes, observing from a different perspective, being in the moment.
Imagine… growing in confidence as a writer.
Imagine… learning about others’ struggles and worries and loves and fears and experiences - and thinking how much they are like your own.
Imagine… laughing out loud or being brought to tears – sometimes in the same post!
Imagine… joining a writing community that offers daily support and encouragement.
Imagine… the March Slice of Life Story Challenge!
