Welcome to the month of March.
my time of year to write each day
with slicers in an artful way -
to think, to dream, and to create
small nuggets of thought worth their weight
Writing is a practice of the heart
For the past month, I joined Laura Shovan's 10th Annual February Poetry Project dealing with the topic of time. I read, researched, went down many rabbit holes, and wrote daily. Out of the 28 days, I submitted 26 poems in varied formats. Some poems were drafts, some quick writes, and others finished products. It was an inspiring period of time in which I connected with a supportive group of fellow poets. It was a time of learning and leaning on others.
I now feel prepared to spend the month of March pondering my one word, appreciate, and writing slices of life on various passions of mine. Each year of the past seven years I participated in the Slice of Life Story Challenge, I have looked at the art of writing through different lenses. This year, I plan on using the five different thumbnail images in the digital design above as writing prompts. The first film box shares a graphic design signifying creativity, an essential ingredient in the writing process and in art projects. It is with a creative spirit that I connect with fellow slicers of the Two Writing Teachers' community. May this month bring us all closer in our commitment to grow as writers.
