31 Flavors

31 flavors of posting in 31 days, well 29 for me as I missed two of them, and now it’s done. Some of those flavors were humorous, I hope, some downright maudlin, that’s life, all of them a slice – a flavor of my everyday.  I had my fingers crossed tight for this year, very tight.

In previous years I did not make it past the halfway mark before I threw in the towel. Granted some of my posting this month was rubbish and only submitted so I can say I posted a slice. So yes, I am honestly proud of myself  for having made it to the end with only two missing days. Those who follow my blog know last week was especially taxing for me. I was literally posting my slices minutes before, if not the at, the stroke of midnight, but I got them in. Yay!

A friend posted this to her wall in Facebook and I thought it very apropos to my current mood as this month, this year’s writing challenge ends…


So now March is done and I return to the regular weekly slices on Tuesday, but no rest for the wicked! Tomorrow is April 1st and thus begins National Poetry Writing Month! 30 more days of flavors because I’m a glutton for punishment and prose.

And again I’m crossing my fingers tight on that.


Day 31!!!! Congratulations to my fellow slicers who made it to the end!

  1. Congrats for having only missed two days – that is something to celebrate! I love the upbeat feel of this post, and the 31 flavors analogy. If I may, there are so many flavors of writing that I’ve read this month, and it’s been quite the tasting. I’m glad I stopped by your blog, and will again on Tuesdays.

  2. Hang tuff!! Drink from the fountain of youth and bring back that intendancy next time —Smile—
    I’m not saying anything about your age.. I’m 61 and pulling my converse out of my mouth

    and not put my sneaker somewhere where the sun doesn’t shine…. —Smile— BTW congrates

  3. Congratulations on completing the March challenge. I enjoy your posts. The quote you posted really nails it. I certainly understand about sometimes just posting so that I can say I made it that day. I look forward to your Tuesday posts.

So? What do you think?
