You Have Time.

time-to-writeOne of the biggest barriers between us and the Slice of Life Challenge is TIME. We look at our schedules, we look at other’s slices, and we quickly jump to the conclusion that we don’t have time to add one more thing, especially something like a daily writing challenge to our already too full schedule.

Although it may seem counter-intuitive, the truth is, you do have time, and it might not be the burden you imagine. Writing is one of those things that gives much more than it takes. You are already living, so you have plenty to write about, it is a matter of actually putting words on the page (or in the case of the challenge, in the text box). When we do this, we give substance to our day to day existence.

Writing allows us to find meaning in the moments. The question isn’t whether you have enough time, the REAL question is whether you can afford not to join the challenge. For one month, you can stop life from slipping through your fingers.

One month. Thirty-one days. It is possible. You have time for this. And you’ll thank us in April.

Pinky promise. 🙂

  1. Love this. Love the simple and direct quote: You have time to write. It is so true! I was daunted last year, and so delighted with completing the challenge. I’m going to try again this year! Yeah! Thanks for the opportunity!!


  2. You can find the time for what you value. It is hard and it takes work, but it gets easier! The SOLC helped me figure out a little bit about digital writing and challenged me as a writer and teacher of writing! I’m in!


  3. I loved last year and look forward this year to getting back into the habit. The last few months have slipped away from me and I have not been writing or writing slices so this is my challenge to get back to the page. Thanks for keeping this challenge open and ready for those of us who slip away and need the push to return. Yes, to writing!


  4. I’m not as worried about finding the time to write as I am about making time to respond to others! I found that I was able to zip out a piece every day without a huge issue, but then I felt guilty about every single slice I didn’t get to read and respond to (and we had a huge crew last year, so that was a lot of guilt!)


  5. …and besides, if I write every day for a month, then I can tell myself I don’t have time to exercise in March…let’s all try it!

    I am grateful for the challenge. Last year I developed a writing habit by taking the Slice challenge. Thank you Stacey and Ruth for all your work.
