March #SOL16 Day One


We all have them.

Those we are aching to share.

Those we need to share.

Those we can’t bear to share.

These stories link us as human beings.

We relate.  We nod.  We smile.  We wonder.

We collectively wring our hands and sigh today, on Day One, as we sit at our computers, tablets, phones.  We are all pulling in the same direction.  Do you feel it?

The excitement and the nerves.  They are real.

Will we be able to pull it off….write every single day?

Will we be judged for what we choose to write about….for how we write?

No.  Not here.

Soon our fears will give way to a positive rush of emotions.

Soon our phones will ding and light up, signaling to us that someone has read our writing and they have something to say.

Affirmation.  Encouragement.  Kindness.

Propelling us to write again tomorrow.

Our stories will rise up and we will connect.

We will get to know one another in a way that could not happen without this process.

Our stories will be shared

We are Writers.

Welcome to March.
