Thank you to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Tara, Beth, Anna, Kathleen & Deb for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it. Join us at Two Writing Teachers.
It's over. March is ending today. When the month and this challenge approaches, I get nervous and worried...as the days progress, I get into a groove...as the month ends, I get sad and feel a loss. I wanted to find an appropriate way to end, so I am borrowing (and adapting) the form Alan Wright used on his blog Living Life Twice yesterday and writing about who we are right now.
We are writing our final slice for the month
We are weary from pouring our hearts into our words
We are peacocks...proud of overcoming our doubts
We are owls...wiser from writing our story everyday
We are buttresses...supporting each other every step of the way
We have sistered each other through these days with our words
We showed up
We told our messy stories
the days return to normal
these moments get absorbed by life
except for us...
We are forever changed by our words
We are forever different because of the commitment we made
We. Are. Writers.
