Slice of Life: Are We Brave Enough?

It's Tuesday!  Today is the Slice of Life Challenge.  I'm so grateful to the writers in this community for their continued support, inspiration, and friendship.  You can stop by Two Writing Teachers to join the conversation and discover links to the stories shared.  

This morning my car temperature said -11 degrees as I headed off to school at 7:00.  I wanted to get there early as it was my first day for writing club.  This year, for the Slice of Life Challenge, I have started a writing club after school that will help us support one another even through the hard times.  Students grades one through five have signed up for this challenge.  I am beyond excited.

But now it is 11:33 at night and I am just getting home from a crazy busy day.

So know that we are in.

We are committed.

We are brave enough to work to write every day in March.  

I hope you are joining us on this writing journey.  


  1. How awesome to find a way to spread the writing excitement and to have a system in place for the hard days you know are to come!

  2. What a fantastic way to support and encourage writers. Best wishes to your writing club! Looks like you had a wonderful turn out.

  3. I love that you are having a writing club! It's a big group! Will they meet every day?
    -11? OK, I won't complain about the 7 degree reading on our thermometer any more. And 11:33. I promise no more complaining about the three 13 hour days this week!

  4. You are an awesome teacher with such great ideas.. I am proud to know you are my daughter!!!!

  5. Wow! You continue to inspire us!

  6. Yes, wow! That is so awesome!!!! I can't wait to hear about your journey during this writing challenge. Wish I had the time and energy to try this ... Congrats and best of luck to all your writers! Be brave and yes, you CAN do it!
