WRITE, SHARE, GIVE: IT’S SOL TIME!

SOL

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 SOLS bloggers.

We are so glad that you can join our writing community to share a slice of your life…

…even though the holiday season makes our lives busier than ever

…even though our to-do lists seem endless and impossible

…even though Winter Break has begun (for many of us) and we need a change of pace

…we gather together, as we do every Tuesday,  to share our slices and celebrate our writing lives.

  1. I am so pleased that I made the deadline for this post. Life is hectic what with my microwave breaking down, servicemen in my house for days, preparing for the holidays, and putting the finishing touches on the Finding Fall Gallery that will be offered as my Christmas gift. Tonight’s post is about my excitement over Santa’s ride through the streets of my neighborhood.

    PS — In case you all didn’t see it, I wrote at the Middleweb site about how a recent Slice of Life piece — and most importantly, the comments of others — really helped me see through a difficult situation in my class (well, it’s still unfolding but I have a clearer vision now). Thank you, everyone!
