Thank you to everyone in the slicing community this month who has helped me to live a more writerly life! I have loved reading about your children, parents, friendships and pets. I was uplifted by your challenges and triumphs. I have been inspired by your creative spirit and style. I appreciated your comments and connections on my own posts. I will continue to follow many of you and hope that our paths will continually cross through life-if not in person than through our words posted online. Keep writing, keep reading, keep living and loving.

Well said. Yes to all of those. You captured the juxtapositions and many moods of writing.
It’s complicated . . .
And you captured that so eloquently!
Thank you, Paula for being a Slicer who is generous with words, comments and sharing your ideas! ❤
Such a beautiful list of reasons to write, Paula!
I love this…all of it! You said it so perfectly, and I love the juxtaposition. I’ve enjoyed your slices this year. You are very talented.
Thank you for your kind words! It has been such a fun month.
Love this — so many reasons for me are in your poem. I love AKR’s reason at the end of Textbook. Have you read it? I won’t ruin it in case you haven’t.
I just got my copy of Textbook this week. Will start after The Hate U Give…can’t wait. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Clare!
Paula, You’re an inspiration! Thanks for this beautiful slice and all the others.
Thanks Rita-I have loved reading your slices this month!!
Lovely reasons to write…especially those last two. Our words help us value the moment and lasts longer than we do.
