    There is something about poetry that makes me smile. It used to scare me, and now it is my favourite thing to write. I love reading slices in the form of poetry. I am looking forward to reading all of your slices this month!

    Short and sweet, Elsie. You said it all. Yes, thinking about the 31 days!!! I’m sure you’ll come up with OLW. Thanks for checking on me!

    I think I need to go buy a lottery ticket. When I got ready to comment, it said “31 thoughts on 31 Days!” Creepy. You have captured so many thoughts. I love the line that time will fly, drag, and stand still! It does!

  5. I’m delighted you’re back for another year of writing, Elsie! It wouldn’t be March without you.

    BTW: I heard you met Rose at the conference this past week. What a small world!

  6. What a fun list poem, elsie! You’ve captured all the things that make slicing wonderful in such a concise, vivid way! I’m looking forward to writing with you again! 🙂

  7. Hi Elsie!!!! So good to be back with you this March! I know — this month holds so much promise. I’ve been writing for the past few weeks in anticipation of this very day. Your poem puts me in the mood to write even more! Happy slicing!!!

  8. Loved your poem! It expresses the Slice Challenge full circle – we don’t know what is in store for our writing, but know it will involve a variety of stories, a variety of genres to explore. Some days our writing will flow. Other days will be more difficult. We are writers!


  9. I, too, loved the idea of a poem. I really liked how you used the sizes of the letters to make a difference and the repetition. You remind me how powerful words can become using poetry as our vehicle. Looking forward to communicating with you again through our writing. Happy Slicing!

  10. I am write there with you! Looking forward, as always, to hearing about your adventures, giving encouragement and accepting encouragement from the encouragement-giver extraordinaire.

  11. I love the repetition in this poem – just copied the idea to remember it! Seriously, your comments, enthusiasm and IDEAS helped me keep moving last year in my first challenge participation! Looking forward to more learning this year! ❤

  12. Loved your poem! Almost forgot it was March 1st. The weather outside is like a winter postcard. Lots of soft fluffy snow coming down. While that is nice, I really think it fooled me into thinking it was not March yet. Thank you for your lovely reminder!
