SOLSC Day 8: It’s Been One Week

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?

  1. Yeah you made it! Me to, my first time slicing. I am doing the happy dance, didn’t think I could do it!

  2. 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.

    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!

    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!

  6. Donna Smith says:

    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!

  7. Linda Baie says:

    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!

    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?

    • macrush53 says:

      It’s a middle grade novel in verse about two friends, pranks, and what could go wrong.
