31 Slices, 2012
Thinking over the SOLS Challenge of 2012, I feel stronger and more confident about my writing than I did a year ago when I created my blog and wrote every day during the 2011 Challenge. At that time, I spent a lot of time revising and revising until I was frazzled at times. This year, I seemed to just write what was on my mind. It worked!
I worried at first about coming up with ideas, but Ruth started us off with her 31 Slicing Ideas. I pasted that into my writers notebook and added ideas to the page.
Before I knew it, I wasn't even looking at that page of ideas but was enveloped in other bloggers' posts and gained inspiration from them and tried new forms of writing. This year I almost felt like we were writing letters to each other when we commented, creating that community of writers again.
I still have some ideas that I didn't use for the Challenge, so I'm poised to continue on SOLS Tuesdays. Hope to see many of you there.
