SOLC #1 – These emotions describe my slice of life today. In actuality, they describe my feelings since I submitted the Participant Information form on February 15th. It would be accurate to state that the intensity of these emotions has only grown as I have been trying to figure out how to set up my WordPress website, what I would might write about, how and where to post daily entries, etc… Obviously, I am a new Slicer and blogger. For over thirty years, I have hand written in journals recording events and pouring out my heart in private . Even now as I look back on the two writing groups that I have recently participated in, being face to face and reading my writing aloud ironically seems more comforting than to share my writing with complete strangers online. While I am trepidatious and excited, this I know to be true – writing has never failed me! Writing has helped me process and organize my thoughts. It has comforted and inspired me and brought out creativity that I didn’t know I had. The act of sharing writing and providing feedback to other people’s writing in a community setting has always proven to be a powerful experience. So… here’s to trying another writing style out and joining the Slice Of Life Writing group!
