#sol16 March 20 Slice: Select All. Delete.

Slice of LIfe  I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too!  Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!

Select All.


I’m inspired. But, I have to sleep.

Oh –  I want to tell you about New York. I want to tell you about my Beyoncé day, my friends, my sessions, my learning. But my thoughts are still scattered in my notebook, my iPad photos, and the google docs my friends have shared with me. So, I type type type type type. Select All. Delete.

I’m so tired. But, I have a slice called “Left! Curb!” One called “The bad french fries.” and even one I like to call, “The Cupcake Engagement.” Plus, I know you can’t wait to hear me gush about Kate Roberts and Cornelius Minor – and I even have pictures that illustrate how they are my new BFFs.

But every time I type a slice, it doesn’t work. So I type type type type type. Select All. Delete.

I have to sleep. But I have good stories to tell! Like, last night,when we couldn’t seem to find a bathroom even though it was desperately needed. I want you to help me count the Starbucks that we tried, and tell me why I can get coffee in my hometown late at night but in NYC Starbucks closes at 6:00.

It’s a good story, but after I type type type type type, I just select all, delete.

I’d love to slice about how I almost got out of the city but veered the wrong way, so we drove back in. But you know… select all, delete.

  1. I love the parallel structure in this post. Sounds like you have some great stories to tell….AFTER you’ve gotten some much needed rest!! Look forward to them 🙂

  2. I too like the realness of this post. We all go through times where we have to just bleed on the screen and then we don’t like it so we select all/delete. I don’t do it anymore. I save and open a new document. You never know what might inspire something later.

  3. Now I have lots of stories swirling in my head!
    Did you recently write a post in the “Unfortunately, Fortunately” format? I borrowed that structure and wanted to give you credit but I couldn’t find it again.
