Slice of Life in Seven 6 Word Stories - #SOL18 - 3/16/18

**I'm so grateful to the #SOL community for welcoming me each and every time I post a slice. Thank you so very much to the team at Two Writing Teachers for coordinating and hosting this slicing community for the entire month of March for the Slice of Life Challenge. You all rock!!**

*During this year's challenge, my plan is to reflect on a slice of my life from that day, or the day before, and write about it. No theme to tie my writing together this year, no plans ahead of time.  Just glimpses into slices of my days. Not having a plan is a very uncomfortable place for me, both as a person and a writer, so fingers crossed for the 15 remaining days!*

Yesterday, Clare posted her day in seven 6 word stories. I loved the idea of 6 words describing various snippets of the day, and decided to try something like this myself today...

Starting gate - toast, paper, Jumble, book

Chilly water, body moving, heart pumping

Cleaning lady ill, my turn today

Altered for me, now fits perfectly

Reserves at library, true treasures found

Racks in basement - gorgeous clothing decisions

Brackets doing well, some teams disappoint

I may need to bring this format back another time. For someone who loves to rattle on, being concise is a good skill to practice for me!


  1. Being concise is a good skill for me to practice as well. I enjoy writing in the six-word format. Capturing little slices throughout the day is a terrific idea, and these are wonderfully evocative.

  2. Interesting idea and I'm curious about those racks in the basement. Is that your basement? Are they your clothes? Are you shopping in someones basement? Maybe this is another slice?
