I recently read somewhere that Mem Fox, one of my favorite children’s authors and educator, said, “Readers are what make writing matter.”
When I started the Slice of Life Challenge last year, I didn’t think I’d be able to write every day, but I did. I also didn’t think I’d keep popping in for some Tuesday slices, but I did. This year there’s more commuting and more on my plate than there was last year so I’m nervous that I won’t be able to do all 31 days, but I’m here today. A big part of that is the support and feedback I get each time from readers. So to start off this year’s challenge I want to say thank you in advance for reading and making my writing feel like it matters.
