Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Challenge

Some years ago, I had a blog on Open Salon.  Its format enabled me to build a large  audience quickly, and I felt myself thriving as a writer.  Eventually, OS ceased operations, and for a long time I had trouble finding the motivation to write and to generate any kind of momentum for myself.

Last month, a teacher in my building encouraged me to join this challenge.  This was the experience I needed.  I am grateful to Suzanne for this invitation and to Deb, whom she also approached.

Also, several other participants in this challenge wrote kind comments on my posts.  This encouragement has made a meaningful difference for me, and I feel enriched by having discovered their blogs.

My deep gratitude to Two Writing Teachers.  Including today’s entries, I believe I have posted over 25 times this month.  I have never managed this kind of output before.

I hope to participate again next year, but in the meantime, I will continue to post regularly, and I will most certainly continue to read the blogs of the fine writers I have discovered here.

  1. Congratulations Paul! I am so glad to have “met” you through your writing. Your thinking and your story telling are captivating! I have to apologize here for not being the consistent welcome wagoner that I could have been! Know that I am following your blog and look forward to more of your brave and thought provoking slices! Yay you!
