With thanks to Fran McVeigh for providing me with this scaffold to write this piece.
Currently I am….
writing a slice-of-life piece with a format borrowed from Fran.
pausing to watch the grackles devour the seed in my bird feeder.
sipping black coffee that sits by my laptop.
petting my Welsh Corgi, Merri, who patiently waits for me to stop writing.
pulling my light jacket around me for warmth.
wondering if I should get up and bump the heat up a notch.
checking my phone for a text message from my husband.
brushing tears from my cheeks as I reread Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s love letter, “You May Want to Marry My Husband.”
making a mental note to purchase Amy’s memoir and read it.
thinking that my plants sitting on the wide sills in my kitchen may need some water.
realizing that I still have two Christmas decorations to store away for next year.
remembering, suddenly, that I still have not registered for ILA or have written a proposal to present at KSRA 2017 in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
mentally reminding myself to find time to make the chili for tonight’s dinner with Diane and Joe.
worrying that I still have eighteen (Yes, eighteen) more slices to write for this month!
I am participating in #SOL17. Thanks to the twowritingteachers blog team for creating this wonderful community of writers.
