One year ago, I sat down at my computer and started a blog in preparation for the 2015 Slice of Life challenge. In some respects, that event seems like it was a lifetime ago. In other respects, it seems like it was only yesterday. With one click of a button, I discovered my voice. Sometimes it’s a little scratchy, sometimes a little faint, and sometimes a little loud, but it’s always there. However, if it hadn’t been for #SOL15, I don’t know if I would have made that discovery. I found an amazing community of teacher-writers and for that I am so thankful. My fellow slicers have encouraged me, inspired me, and enlightened me. While my personal writing has been a bit “hit or miss” lately due to grad school, I hope to participate in #sol16 as much as possible. It’s time to let the words begin to flow!
