Slice of Life Day 10: Challenge Accepted!
There I was yesterday, cruising around and commenting on some great blogs during the Slice of Life Challenge, when I came across GirlGriot’s musings about the noises she was hearing from under a grate by her apartment building. I thought…now THIS is a great story prompt, and I told her so. Before I knew it,Continue reading “Slice of Life Day 10: Challenge Accepted!”
Slice of Life Day 8: Picture This
Photo-based slices seem to be my pace lately. But I’m still Slicing, still sharing, still enjoying. The last day or two brought their fair share of enjoyment. Among the things I have to celebrate:
Slice of Life Day 5: I Can’t Be The Only One
Here we are at Day 5 of the Slice of Life Challenge. I saw this particular type of post from a fellow Slicer, and try as I might can’t find the original post that inspired me.

Slice of Life: One BIG Little Word
Each new year, members of the Slice of Life teaching and writing community traditionally write a post focusing on “One Little Word.” I enjoy the process of sifting through, taking stock, and figuring out where I might land. I enjoy it almost as much as I like to read other folks’ OLW posts. It’s fascinatingContinue reading “Slice of Life: One BIG Little Word”
Prompt and Reliable
Oh, WordPress. There you are again, with a prompt for the day. This time, it’s “Do you have a favorite place you’ve visited? Where is it?” So let’s get real.
