I Could Write About...

17 of 31 - SOLSC 2018

The Slice of Life March Challenge is hosted by Two Writing Teachers and part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge that takes place each Tuesday throughout the year and everyday in March. It is a supportive (and awesome!) community of those trying their hand at writing and encouraging others in their writing. Join us!

I could write about the fact that yesterday was exactly a twelve hour day - sunrise at 6:37 a.m. and sunset at 6:37 p.m. 

Or what about the "Girls' Day" I had with my daughter since my husband went diving.

Or the fact that he saw two hammerhead sharks during his dive, (but wasn't using his Go-Pro so we don't have footage of it).

I could use talk about things that are half or things that are in between with inspiration taken from other slices I read.

Or how much I love "The West Wing" and having "The West Wing Weekly" this time through more than doubles the time it takes to get through the series, but is adding new insights.

I could write about what a "Hamilton" geek I am. And there are so many avenues I could take with my fandom to run with this idea.

Or I could write about two friends taking the kids from four households to the park this morning. The kids were going to have fun regardless, but the friendship made the trip enjoyable for me as well.

Or about all the things I didn't do today, but with that thought I sigh and come to a close. Sometimes writing is a joy. Sometimes writing is a chore. And sometimes, writing is a means to procrastinate.


  1. Amen to all that -- plus you have the option on picking some of these to expand for later - smart move

  2. Lots of seeds here you can tend into stories!

  3. I’ve thought about writing an I could write about post and really like your list. I’ll be writing about Hamilton in late April after I finally get to see it.

  4. These will go on your list for another day.

  5. I, too, love Hamilton!! I appreciated the way your closed this piece-"Sometimes writing is a joy, sometimes writing is a chore and sometimes writing is a means to procrastinate."

  6. So many possibilities!

    BTW: I want to read about the hammerhead run-in (even if you don't have GoPro footage).

  7. I'm with you on all the things writing can be. I bet I'll need to use your format this next week. I have a feeling that I will have one of those tough-to-write days soon!

  8. So many great ideas here. Another great idea to add to my list of possible blog posts.

  9. Oh, can I ever relate to your post! Thanks to your encouraging words (and others') yesterday, I found my writer voice again today. On the bright side, you have created a great list of possible slice topics! :-)
