(This is part of the Slice of Life Project)
Today’s Slice of Life is a convergence of communities.
I write this as part of the ongoing Slice of Life project being guided by Two Writing Teachers but I also want to invite anyone and everyone to contribute to this week’s Day in a Sentence feature. After first settling in Australia, and then traveling off to Israel, the Day in a Sentence is back home here.
In some ways, the Day in a Sentence is a nice companion to the Slice of Life and I hope there continues to be some cross-over between the two writing communities that I am part of in this Internet world. The Slice of Life, which is nearing its end, is a collection of bloggers who are reflecting on their days through their posts over the course of a month. The Day in a Sentence is a weekly entry into reflection and sharing through a single sentence or writing prompt. (see some of the archives)
If you are a regular Day in a Sentence contributer, I invite you to head over to Two Writing Teachers and follow some of the Slice of Life threads. If you are a Slice of Life friend, I warmly invite you to contribute some words to our Day in a Sentence feature.
Here is how Day in a Sentence works:
- You think about a day of the week or your entire week
- You boil it down into a single sentence (no special prompts this week)
- You post your sentence here by using the comment link on this post
- I collect all of the sentences, collate them and publish them on Sunday
- Feel free to hyperlink to podcasts, or photos, or other files, if you want
- That’s it!
Here is my sentence for the week:
I’m realizing that I need to spend less time on the keyboard and more time in real life, and so, a little withdrawal is necessary.
Peace (in community),
I love this idea of “boiling” a day or a week into a single sentence. Something to ponder and see if I can accomplish that feat. Thanks for sharing your sentences.
I was off line for 24 hours. Weird.
I’m starting to think in 140 characters – too much Twittering?!
I really like the idea of distilling a day into a sentence. I joined Bonnie’s informal challenge … it’ll be nice to try continuing that exercise.
