A Pre-slice to If My House Could Talk ~ #sol17

I believe being a writer is one of the biggest gifts you can give to your students. ~ Stacey Shubitz

This month I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for creating a space for me to share my corner of the world.

This slice is a prelude, a lead-in, a pre-slice, a preface, a prologue to the slice I will have later this week.

Saturday, I was working on a slice called, If My House Could Talk.  As I was making a list in my notebook, I decided to ask the other occupants what they thought our house would say.  

My daughter, who was sitting on the couch grading papers, responds, "Help me!"  

My son was at work, so I texted him the question.  He responds, "You all take too many naps!"

My husband responds, "There's a lot of love in this house."  

At least one of them got it!


  1. You are building suspense for this slice! I love, love, love the front porch on your home and I can't wait to hear what it will say!

  2. Gorgeous home! All of that green! That porch! And now I've got another idea for a slice! Thank you, Leigh Anne. I seriously never come here to your blog without being inspired. That's a gift you're giving MANY writers this month and every month!

  4. I laughed- my house would say,"Help me!"
    Nice idea. It makes me look forward to hearing more from you, finding out why you are thinking about this, and it makes me wonder what my own house would say.

  5. I love the whole "if my house could talk"!
    I love how you asked your family.
    Wonderful slice.
