Every day for thirty one days I ‘ll share a slice and read other slices at Two Writing Teachers
Can it be a week already? A week of writing daily slices. And it’s been a busy week. One of those weeks where it seems that there was something every day after school.
I’ve been trying to respond to comments this year. I always wonder if anyone checks them to see if I have replied. I am not very good about replying so it’s new to me.
I am visiting new people who are participating in the challenge. It’s really fun to read the different slices. Some of us have similar experiences. I like to find slices that don’t have comments. I know how it makes me smile when I am notified that someone has commented.
I have noticed that similar themes occur: school doings, feeling tired, and friendships. So we have ways to connect with one another through story and writing.
Here is the weekend. I schedule working on my manuscript the second and fourth weekends. I will be writing this weekend.
What’s you slice?
Yeah you made it! Me to, my first time slicing. I am doing the happy dance, didn’t think I could do it!
Hooray for making it week as well. And happy first time taking the challenge.
Good luck to you and your writing weekend. I hope it will be productive! Glad you made it all week to SOLSC and commented. It is fun to find someone with no comments isn’t it? I always feel like I found a little gem.
Yes, it is finding a gem. Thanks for stopping by.
I have found the end of the week was much harder to find the time to comment on blogs. I am looking forward to this weekend where I have more time to just sit and read. This is my first challenge and I have learned so much this first week!
Yes, the end of the week always speeds up.
Bravo for writing all week, commenting, and replying to comments. That last bit is where I fall apart, though. How exciting to have a manuscript going – it sounds just the sort of thing that my sixth graders would love, Jone!
Thanks, Tara. I am hoping that everyone will want to read it when it gets finished.
I love reading comments so I try to leave comments as well. I try to comment on a few slices in the morning and then again on a few when I come home at night. So many wonderful ideas to be found among the slicers! Happy writing this weekend!
Thanks, Jaana. I am trying to leave replies this year.
I like leaving comments, too. And I try to reply to my comments, though sometimes I just get behind. There are other things I should be doing! It’s been a busy week and will be a very busy month, but here we go – week 2!
Busy is a great word for this month. Thanks, Donna.
I’ve loved reading different slices too, and those I know from more than one time doing this. I love that you schedule your weekend writing-good for you, Jone, and hope it’s a good one for you! Thanks for my comments, I do notice!
Thanks, Linda. I want to finish polishing my novel so i made a plan to write. The other weekends are reserved for time with husband and family.
It is fun to comment and to receive comments, isn’t it! Happy writing!
Thanks, Julie. Rain is coming. Good day to write.
I enjoy commenting almost as much as writing, well…I suppose it is writing…maybe that is why I like it. Commenting makes me really read the piece and not just skim. What is your manuscript about?
It’s a middle grade novel in verse about two friends, pranks, and what could go wrong.
