So many memories are made in November.
Cynthia Rylant’s brilliant picture book, In November, has always felt like a slice-of-month story to me. Her lyrical text and vivid imagery evoke the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and warmth of this time of year with a specificity that inspires me as a writer. I want to curl up under a blanket with my laptop and a spicy chai latte, capturing moments with heart and truth as she does.
So much life happens in November.
So, today, on this first day of November, I invite you to craft a slice of life story (in any form), share a link in the comments section below, then read and comment on the stories of at least three other slicers. Let’s kick off this new month with the reverence it deserves.
