This is the final post in the annual month-long Slice of Life writing challenge organized by Two Writing Teachers. It was my third year of Slicing in the challenge. Gratitude to Beth, Betsy, Deb, Kathleen, Kelsey, Lanny, Melanie, and Stacey for all their organizing and commenting magic. If you want to take a peek at the Padlet of writing ideas I’ve continued to add to throughout the challenge, you’ll find it here. I hope to see you on Tuesdays for the weekly SOL, and daily if you are participating in National Poetry Writing Month (#NaPoWriMo), which launches tomorrow.
How can this be? 31 days have come and gone in a flash. We’ve been flexing our writing muscles, looking for those small moments each and every day. It’s funny how in the beginning I had to search for them. But now they drift in on the wind, ready to be captured and shared on (virtual) paper with the world — or at least a few of its residents. Let’s continue to share slices on Tuesdays, shall we?
Commenting is writing, too! How easy it is to forget that. Thank you to all of you who wondered and wandered a bit with me this month, and for taking a few moments to “like” and comment. It was wonderful to have you along for the ride. Extra thanks to my TeachWrite Facebook Group family. Confetti for all, especially my Wednesday night writing group pals.
This final #SOLC19 post would not be complete without a poem. Signing off — until Tuesday — with my acrostic poem from last year.
Tomorrow members of the Poetry Friday family (some of whom are SOLC writers you will recognize) will be launching the 7th annual Kidlitosphere Progressive Poem organized by author/poet, Irene Latham. (Click here to learn more.) Many of us have signed up to provide a line for the 2019 poem. Author/poet Matt Forrest Esenwine kicks things off on Monday. I’m excited to provide the 14th line on Sunday, April 14th. I hope you’ll join us to see what happens! We have no idea what the poem is about yet, so stay tuned! Here’s the itinerary for the poem.
