{today} #sol16

The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!

today:  i anticipate the long weekend ahead

today:  i could feel the excitement before a much-needed break
want to be:  snuggled up in bed reading a book without interruption
blessings:  my God, my family, my home, and my profession
thinking: i'm too tired to write with that feeling of no words to share
planning:  each of the next five days with family and friends and too much food
writing:  a little slice of life today
loving:  the peace and quiet right now
grateful:  for a loving family, a toasty-warm home ...

and today {again}: i anticipate the long weekend ahead

This go-to easy-format quick-thinking in-the-moment writing idea is compliments to:

"It's a single print out of the busy cycle of life, a pause, a way to plan, 
and to remember to breathe in the midst of the everyday."


  1. Your quick-writing in-the-moment writing prompts looks good enough to try. Thank you for sharing it. (that's really not a subject-verb disagreement; i'm thinking of "prompts" as a singular thing, since altogether they work as a unit. And maybe you can tell I'm a copy editor?)

  2. Thank you for sharing your heart-felt list about your today. xo

    You've also inspired me to try it as I, too, could not think of words to share. I seem to collect drafts and finish them way past the Tuesday link-up. :0)

  3. I think many of us are feeling the same way right now: tired, yet excited for the few days off that lie ahead. I hope they are good ones for you!

  4. Looking forward to this special weekend of spending time with family and being thankful for the blessing we all receive each and every day. I love this format - easy, but expresses so much. Love ya, Mom


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
