"I don't have anything to slice about!"
I looked at my notebook page for today, saw the Slice of Life prompt, and had no ideas.
Nada. Zip. Nothing.
And now that I've retired, I don't even have classroom antics to write about.
Those old doubts started creeping in.
"Who wants to read about my life?"
"I write about these! Who doesn't like new notebook stories?"
I made notes about the day and was ready to write.

I started reading other slices this morning like I always do. Reading what other people write gives me a little morning motivation. I read Michelle's post about her morning attendance taking and got caught up in her question of the day about cookies! And I thought about Danny, our custodian who brings warm cookies once a month. That would make a great slice!
Then I started reading through other entries in my notebook. I write every day, I just don't turn everything into a blog post. There are plenty of ideas there just waiting for me to choose them!
And, then, there's my writing quote for the day:
I guess I did. Surprise myself, that is.
SOLSC 18 is coming up quick! This is a reminder post (mostly for me) that writing is everywhere. And the more I write, the more ideas I find.
