SOL 25/31: The Posts I Didn't Write Today

Returning for year nine of writing daily in March with my Slice of Life writer friends! Check out Two Writing Teachers for more slices of life occurring every day in March.

Sharing the posts I didn't write today . . . 

The one that's already written in my writer's notebook - school memories, inspired by Allison Berryhill who I met through the writing community at ethical ela. I want to go back to her blog and read her Writing Through Covid-19 posts. 

Pictures from my walks the past two weeks

Trigger words - No, I'm not talking about words that make me anxious. These would be the words that stop me in my tracks to click on a link when I scroll through the postings from our very large community of writers.

Our book club's slate of books for next year and why I'm disappointed

How much I miss spending three days of my week with Jack and Robby

The trip I'm supposed to be on right now

Things I collect - a surprising list I started when I read someone else's post and thought, "I don't collect anything."

Three slicer voices I miss

Inspiring thoughts I've collected this month

Hubby's response as we waited for the return of daughter's COVID-19 test (it was negative)

Grammy delivers for sick kids (I may have written this one already, it's why I really should label my posts.)

Too many writing notebooks

Mentor texts from Elisabeth - Quarantine Reading & Comparing Days - Usually...Today 

Plans for Sunday - A Special Day of Fasting and Mighty Prayer

I still haven't started, but am so inspired by a fellow blogger (help me remember who she is) who showed us pages from her notebook and encouraged us to journal during this time. Getting started today!

Why I wish TWT would provide us with an Excel spread sheet of blogger names with links to their blog

Zoom neophyte to Zoom creator in five short days 

So many posts, never enough time! Even with staying at home as part of my new normal, I still can't read and respond to all the posts I wish to read.

More mentor texts, these two from One Blessed Block - Gratitude Countdown and That's Me  

And one more blog that's filled with mentor texts for a month of writing, Lit Coach Lady, who's writing all month using sparks from Natalie Goldberg's book, Old Friend from Far Away: The Practice of Writing Memoir.

Let me know if there's one you want me to write in the remaining six days. It happens every year! As I enter the final week of March SOL, I discover that I have more posts I want to write than days left in the month!


  1. You’ve got to write these... we want the stories! Just the list is such a reflection of this time. Such powerful longing tucked in the words “how I miss”- makes me think of all the times the grand boys and their pictures have been in your slices. I feel a response to every item in your list! I could write a slice in this comment!

  2. This should keep you writing for awhile! Wouldn't that spreadsheet be nice! I know there are so many that I have not been to - jsut not enough time even with the extra time.

    I am also missing the posts from a few slicers, and I am sure they are the same as yours! ;) You have given me an idea for today's slice though, so thank you!

  3. This is awesome, Ramona. You have such a great list of ideas! I need to go back and check my list that I made early on this month!
