"Day 31 has arrived!
the beautiful writing
of my slicer friends,
the delightful connections
we make as we share our lives,
and the growth we experience
from this month of writing together
for 31 days!
An enormous thank you to the team at TWT who host our efforts each year. A request for next year: Please, please, please! Could you provide us with a linkable spread sheet of blogger names and their blogs? I like to return the favor when someone comments on my blog, but I spend far too much time looking for people whose names do not link to their blogs.
One more request, I'm looking for the blogger who encouraged us to write about this unprecedented time. She showed us pictures from her journal that included snippets and visuals from newspaper articles. I would really love to find her blog again!
See you next week!
