Time to Write

Slice of Life- Day 1

I am glad that I finally made the time to join this class!  I have heard many positive things about it, but have often wondered if I could add one more thing to some already busy days.  I finally decided that it was time to make the time! I have never blogged before, so I am learning something new already. I also feel that as I teach my 3rd graders how to write about the small moments in their life, I often struggle with it myself.  There are many times I think “nothing” happened today or that because some major event in my life didn’t occur, that my daily life is not important. I am starting to believe how untrue that actually is. It has taken me a long time to believe that it is the little things in life that matter the most.  It is the small moments that we appreciate daily that make our lives better, happier. I am glad to be taking time each day to share those moments and to be able to share yours. I know that this course will force me to practice writing and will allow me to experience some of the frustrations that my students feel when they are asked to write daily.  I am looking forward to growing as a writer, but also using this as an opportunity to grow personally. If I have to write about my small moments, then I need to be able to recognize more of the small moments happening constantly in my life. I get so caught up in running from one place to the next, completing on task off my to-do list, then another, and before I know it the day is over.  Slowing down and reflecting on a slice of my daily life seems to be just what I need. I am looking forward to getting started!

  1. Trina – you have so many fun stories to share! I look forward to reading about the small moments you share with us. I think you will find it to be more fun than you thought it would be!

  2. You make a good point about how this challenge can be used to force us to notice the little yet important things that happen each day. When I blogged years ago I was always in my head taking notes about how “this” or “that” would make a good blog post. I’m looking forward to tuning into my daily life and finding something to write about.

  3. To be honest I almost always dread sitting down and writing about something but when it is all over and I look back at what I wrote it is like a sweet little journal that I can look back at and read. When you read your posts this year, next year you will be so happy that you did this. So glad you joined!

  4. This is only my second year… I remember thinking last year, “What will I ever write about?!” Some days were harder than others, of course, but I always managed to come up with something. You will too! Looking forward to reading your posts!

  6. There will be days you love this, and days you dread it. It is really fun telling stories though, and it is even more fun waiting for people to read and comment on them. Welcome to your first blog! I look forward to some of the funny stories I am sure you will write in the next month.
    Damn you Mrs. Perez:)
