SOLSC: Change in Patterns - 20/31

The Slice of Life Story Challenge 
is hosted by the Two Writing Teachers.

Change in Patterns

I look forward to hearing about your slices of life each and every day.  You've become like old trusted friends . . . we share so much about our personal and professional lives, even if it's just a slice.  

I have learned the rhythms and patterns of many of my favorite writers.  When they post. Where to scan. What picture or blog name to look for in the comment list.  

Isn't it funny how after just nineteen days of writing and sharing, you feel like you know someone?

Then Saturday morning. . . 

One of my new writing buddies didn't post before me like she usually does every day.  That's not like her.  Why?  What's going on?  Is it spring break?  Maybe she's traveling.  Why would her routine change?   I hope everything is okay.  So many questions and wonders.

A few hours later on Saturday . . .

Whew. (Sigh of relief.)  She posted.  Everything is okay.  She slept in.  (That's what she blogged.)

Sunday arrives . . .

Traveling. Can't post at my "usual" time.

Wonder if anyone is wondering about me like I wonder about others?
Good news.  I've arrived . . . just a change in my usual pattern.


  1. Excellent post! It is interesting how we have become a community who respond, who uplift through comments and postings. Yes, you were noticed. Keep posting. Love the title. MaryHelen

  2. I was thinking the same thing about the community that has formed. I, too, wonder about the others -- and learn from them.

  3. Me, too, looking for some already who write about books, & those who write about family, & others about teaching. It's a bit how I feel about books, looking in, wondering about the people & how they're living, how they solve problems & celebrate life, too. Thanks for putting these thoughtful ideas in words.

  4. I couldn't agree more about checking in on the people who post around the same time each day! Each year that I do this, I love peeking in on each writer's life to see what has changed and what he or she is learning. I wish I could be one of those people who does it all year!
