DAY 12 OF THE MARCH SOLSC! #SOL16

Welcome to Day 12 of the 9th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!  

If you’re participating in the individual Slice of Life Story Challenge, this is where you share your writing.  If you’re sharing your students’ slice of life stories, please head over to the Classroom Challenge.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tomorrow is your last chance to be part of our Slicer 2016 Video!
We write when and where we can: desks, kitchen tables, laps. BUT, when you have that golden opportunity to soak up inspiration in a space- where are you?
Send a photo of that space (maybe with you there) and a caption to
blkdrama[at]me.com by Saturday.

BE INSPIRED

  • If you’re looking for inspiration today, try this:  Be quiet and listen to the sounds all around you.  Write a short poem about it!  Brooke Kinsman did it here in her Slice titled The sounds.
  • BE INSPIRED.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

-Your life between writing times is like a walk through the woods during which you are gathering flowers - one here, two there - so that by the time you return home, you can fill the empty vase with a full bouquet.-
