Live to slice another day - 3.1 #sol19 Story Challenge

First time I undertook the Story Challenge, I had no clue. I winged it as one does.

Second and third times, I was on it. I'd watched and learned (and read) from wiser souls who'd gone before. As each of those Marches rolled around, I lovingly arranged a month's worth of pre-dated blog templates, titles and topics to be determined.

This year, March ambushed me: Friday morning, I scrambled to line up 31 empty blogs -- an optimistic nod to completing this challenge though it's barely begun -- and now I'm logging my first entry 14 hours later, grimacing slightly that I almost bumbled the challenge though it's barely begun.

  1. But you haven't bumbled anything. Proof is in the punch of a beginning you've got going from the start. This slice made me laugh. Looking forward to 30 more days of what you do or don't have planned :)

  2. I love this short, quirky starter. A literal slice of life. Can't wait to read another unexpected slice of your life :)

  3. I had faith you would come through. 31 empty blogs...maybe I should try that.

  4. I mostly still wing it! I think I managed to get four empty blog posts set up?? Maybe today I'll do the rest. (I do like having them done). Glad you made it!

  5. Yup. You're in trouble! Though not as much as me. I am a total pantser. But seriously, you'll be fine. The rhythm will come. The pieces will present themselves. You'll tear out some hair. Some might turn grey (or greyer in my case). And then it will be April. I am glad you are back for the real March Madness.

  6. It doesn't get any more real than this! I love the straightforward honesty of your slice. In my experience, some days are easy and others are next to impossible. I look forward to reading more of your slices!

  7. I am so glad you are here! Year 4 already? It's always a rollercoaster but I feel like I've run a marathon by the end. (Never actually did that, but I IMAGINE how that would feel!)
