Observing the journey of fellow writers is interesting to say the least.There are definitely common characterisitces of early slices around the nations – slices of life that are actually a step removed. Tales more about people that cross our paths, classes we teach or descriptions of details that surround us as opposed to what we feel with in.
Our journey then takes us to the hurdles we face with writing regularly and also still the observations of life and people who surround us. Enjoyable slices and some examples of great writing to add to our caches of mentor texts.
Just now, close to two weeks in, I am reading slices that challenge my thinking, awaken memories and emotions that I have chosen to bury. How brave you are to put these in print as this somehow does make them more real and undeniable. These are Slices Of Life about the hurdles we face not as writers but as people who do have heart rendering storeis to tell. Hats off to you and well done.
