Today is Slice of Life Tuesday – the weekly writing challenge at “Two Writing Teachers”
As I was thinking about what to write for SOL this morning, I came across a post by Paula. I read her “Currently – A Life List” post and I was inspired. I realized that I had so many things swirling around me, it was hard to focus on one thing. So, I am adapting her list to suit my purpose.
Looking Around My Home
-carnations still blooming
-piles of paper to sort
-dishes to do-a long to-do list
As I Ponder…
-my husband’s health
-planning for a special dinner tonight
-all that needs to be done
-the review I need to do
What I am Learning
-how to develop a character in my writing – from Cheryl Klein’s Chapter 7 (what I’m reviewing for a weekly book study) of her fascinating book The Magic Words
-how to use my new Fitbit (my Valentine gift from my hubby)
What I’m creating
-a new “speak out” card for the weekly challenge at ABC Wednesday
What I’m Reading
-week by week, The Magic Words, a chapter at a time
But then I have a few I’m reading right now – can’t have just one book at a time!:
Wish by Barbara O”Connor
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
A Thread So Thin by Marie Bostwick
What I’m Watching
Right now, The View is on for background noise – although I had to watch the opening – just to hear Whoopie’s thoughts about Trump et all.
What’s happening in your life right now?
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
Love this Bev. So many layers- and a window into your life right this minute.
Thanks Lisa. Just so much to focus on only one thing – this sure worked for today.
I like this format, Bev. Something I will need to remember for the March challenge when I draw a blank. Right now I am thinking about the lobster tails in the refrigerator that will become tonight’s dinner.
Hey – we had that for dinner as well. Also steak and stuffed mushrooms. So much more romantic at home! Happy Valentine’s Day
I, too, like your format, and yes, just in time for March SOL! I’ve found myself thinking about you and your hubby this week. Good to read your post today. Happy Valentine’s Day to both of you.
Thanks Alice. I so appreciate your concern. Definitely a concern – but he is being closely monitored and seems to be more upbeat as well.
Currently…I’m enjoying all these Slices! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Jen – I am too.
Happy Valentine’s Day – you have so much of value going on!
Thanks Tara – Happy Valentine’s Day to you as well.
I love Currentlys! Adding to my to-do list.
Great. Sometimes just works for the best.
You’ve got lots going on! I’m intrigued by the book Magic Words. I’ll have to investigate further! 🙂
Thanks Aggie. It is a great book for a writer – lots of nuggets.
Bev, I enjoyed the perspectives of your “Currently” slice. My favorites are the “Looking Around My Home” and the “Pondering”. You have a nice blog. Hopefully I’ll see you in March for the SOLSC. ~Amy
Thanks Amy. It is an easy form and really focuses you when ideas are lacking. Will look for you in March too.
Great format. Thanks for sharing. I woke this morning with my inner voice reviewing the myriad of tasks. What did I do? Instead of sleeping I woke up and wrote.
What a great start to the day! Glad you liked the format
