March Slice of Life – Day 29


Today is Day 29 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “ Two Writing Teachers”

It is hard to believe that we are almost at an end of the March Slice of Life challenge. I have posted a slice everyday. Some days the inspiration wasn’t there and then I read another slicer’s post and I was inspired by something they had shared.

Today’s slice was inspired by Barbara, who created a Slice of Life acrostic. I used acrostics often in my classroom to spark poems in my students. They loved this form, as do I.

Here is my take on “Slice of Life

S  – Slice of Life this March is almost at an end

L – Let’s remember all we’ve done and what we’ve learned

I – I have definitely enjoyed this challenge,

C – Celebrating all the personal stories shared

E – Everyone has them; we need to share them and learn from them

O – One slice a day, 31 in all.

F – For one month, we have stretched our writing muscles,

L – Letting others learn about us in the process

I – I know I have learned so much – about myself and about others

F – For when we share our stories, we are one

E – Ever more – united;  a community of story-tellers, writers; forever changed.

  1. I like how you shared how we are all stretching our writing muscles-21 days makes a habit, so perhaps I can apply this now to yoga stretching ? I’m going to keep slicing though, are you?

  2. I like how this flowed. You did a nice job of making it feel like a conversation and not an acrostic. I will be slicing on Tuesdays as well. I keep thinking I want to keep writing every day and I will (I hope) but I think the comments and community is what keeps me coming back. So I will commit to Tuesdays.

  3. My favorite line “when we share our stories we are one.” I think the best part of Slice of Life is the interaction and connecting we do with other slicers. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. 🙂

  4. Your acrostic perfectly captured some of my own thoughts about this experience. I do feel as if it has changed me…for the better. I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to read other writers’ stories and share some of my own.
