Slice of LIfe
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by!

I did it.

31 days.

and even though today
each
word
and
thought
was
interrupted
Like even these words, friends. Even these thoughts-
Interrupted by people I love needing me
calling my name,
“Mama”
telling me things, asking me things, fighting in the other room…

I did it.
Even today.

7 Marches, now 8 Marches.

March 2021

And this year I finally convinced a group of teachers to write with me.
I’m so proud of them!
Some wrote a handful of times, others wrote each of the 31 days.
Some are “my teachers” I coach
Some are teachers across town
One’s a librarian
One’s an intern
One’s a principal
All of us are
Writers!

And my coach heart and my writing heart and my teacher heart
are so very very proud.

  1. So fun when you get people in your 3D life to come on in and join the community. Someday I’m going to go back and do a deep dive into all the years of slicing that I have. It’s a lot of Marches!

  2. At the very (coach-teacher-writer) heart of things, you’ve nailed it. The pride, the joy, the growth – it’s all wrapped up here within these lines. I love the first stanza with the interruptions – I can hear. The. Frustration. MOUNT. And yet? You diid it. You did it! Beautifully, I might add.

  3. I’m so envious that you convinced people IRL to join you. I’ve never been able to get anyone to do this with me. How did you do it? I want a future slice that outlines your process. Maybe in Feb. of next year. Or do it now while it’s fresh and I’ll save it to my padlet.
