Slice of Life Tuesday



The Tuesday Slice of Life  is hosted by  Stacey and Ruth  (Two Writing Teachers) every Tuesday. I have taken part a few times and am always amazed at the stories and words that are posted from all over the world.

This Friday, March 1, begins the March Challenge - where a slice of life is to be written every day.

 I am hoping to be able to complete this challenge.  November saw the PBIM - and I was successful in producing over 30 picture book ideas - 2 of which I have taken and written scripts for.

Do we choose a theme, focus on a daily event or like the morning papers (a la Julie Cameron) write about what we are thinking and feeling at that moment?
Not only the writing though - the visiting and reading others' slices is part of the process. It will be a commitment for sure.

The SOL community is a very supportive one .
So, yes I will try and take part in this new writing challenge.
Join in as well!

As for your question-yes to all of them, Beverley! You can share any part of your life, & include your many collages that you create, etc. Find your own plan if that helps. Hurrah, I will watch for you!

I was so nervous last year about what to write. Just like Linda said, it all works! It's the writing every day that's important. You'll be amazed at the things you find to write about. By the way, I love your OLW for 2013. I'll be looking for your posts.

I think you should let your day guide you. There is always something small that happens that you might want to hold on to by writing more about it. If you don't have a list of topics, then something will evolve and present itself to you during the day.

Happy to have you back.

Don't stress too much about topics or themes. As you write more for this challenge, you'll begin to see potential slices in everything. Glad to hear you're doing the challenge!
