Tuesday Slice of Life Story Challenge



Share a story with our community of writers today.

Last night, I was stuck for an idea.  I dug deep.  I stared at a white screen and a blinking cursor. Eventually, I composed a poem about my daughter’s final day of preschool, which didn’t feel as poignant as I expected it would. (NOTE: She has one more year of preschool before Kindergarten.)  Therefore, I wanted to provide you with a source of inspiration today.

I pinned this quote from Ali Edwards’ website a few months ago. It’s an eloquent way of saying things like “seek beauty” and “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” If you’re stuck today, I invite you to “allow yourself to feel your life while you are in it.”  See where that takes you in your writing.

Remember to post a permalink to your slice of life story below.  Be sure to leave comments on at least three other Slicers’ blogs.

WRITE your slice. SHARE your link. GIVE at least three comments to other Slicers.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
