Write, Share, Give: SOL Time

WRITE a slice of life story on your own blog. SHARE a link to your post in the comments section. GIVE comments to at least three other SOLSC bloggers.

Yesterday was the last day of the March SOLSC, but we are back already for the Tuesday SOL! Can you believe it? The month of March went by so fast and writing everyday fueled many of us with a fresh writerly life. I hope you will join us every Tuesday here at TWT for Slice of Life to keep the community alive and keep yourself writing. The rules are the same. Write your slice on your own blog, link it here at TWT on Tuesday’s and comment on at least three other slicers!

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”  Leonard Cohen

April is National Poetry Month. Check out Anna’s post from yesterday to see some ideas. I hope you will carve out a moment at least once this month to share a poem. There are so many ways to do this but simply starting with an observation always helps me get going. Find one thing that intrigues you, describe it, find a new word, make up some words, there doesn’t need to be a formula. Let your poetic juices flow and you will surprise yourself. Share it with us. Be brave. Poetry doesn’t have to be scary. It is beautiful.

    I realized as I looked at cards my mom recieved, that we need to write more stories in the cards we send.


    1. John, Looks like you published the wrong link here, it may be to your preview not the published post. Try publishing the post or updating and then take the unique url from the view, not preview of the post. Hope to see it up soon so I can read/comment! Thanks for joining in.


    1. Zachary, It looks like you put the link to your preview instead of you published post. Go back and publish your post then pull the unique url for the link up here. Thanks, can’t wait to see it and comment!


    1. I forgot to invite you guys to post links to your daily poems on my blog for this month. Please feel free and you can use the logo I created if you like. I will have the poems up by Midnight Eastern time but there is no closed period. Obviously. I’d love to read and share what you write.


      1. I may have already posted this in the wrong place. Are you Donna Smith from Denver, CO? Did you write “Barstool Cowboy” back in the mid 1970’s and participate in Bonfils Theater productions?
