Today's date means we are half-way finished with the Slice of Life Challenge. There have been days when I thought I wasn't going to make it this far.
This year has been different.
It has been difficult.
My plate is full.
Today, I think about these words from Ralph Fletcher, and I carry on
in search of a story.
Writers aren't people
who have had amazing lives.
Writers are people
who find powerful stories
in their ordinary lives.
I really like this quote from Ralph Fletcher.ReplyDelete
It reminds me that I need to be a more watchful observer.
You can make it all the way to the end of March! You keep your eyes and heart open, and you know how to write. You have shown this again and again in your blog. And you know that on some days only few words are needed and enough. I hope that the writing this month has brought you more joy than worries.ReplyDelete
I love Ralph Fletcher! Such a great quote!ReplyDelete
Perfect quote... especially for the middle of March. I too have had a lot of days where I'm not srue I can do it. We will though! I know it!ReplyDelete
Powerful stories in ordinary lives, sounds simple, but oh so hard. I think you are doing a great job of that.ReplyDelete
Love this quote! Hearing him speak someday is on my bucket list.ReplyDelete
Love the quote too and the beauty our words bring to our ordinary lives. I agree, every year is different. This year the stories are there and I’m finding moments to write, but feel like I’m not able to dedicate time to reading and commenting. It’s a hard balance. But we do the best we can, just as you are doing as well. Hang in there and let’s push on!ReplyDelete
This quote from Ralph Fletcher is perfect! And you can do this! I don't think that I would have actually entered this challenge if you hadn't encouraged me.ReplyDelete
