#SOL15: March Challenge Day 10

Today’s writing is based on Bev Baird’s post here with the model of “Currently” as mentioned in Stacey’s Call for Slices.



Listening to the meteorologist predict 70 degrees for today – WOW!

Drinking my first cup of coffee and inhaling that fragrant brew.

Feeling excited for my trip to Kentucky to see the kids this weekend.

Clicking on slices to read this morning while pondering my words – 40 “slicers” have already posted today!

Chuckling to see that Tara has changed her blog’s snowy background and spring is around the corner.

Staring into the darkness due to the change in time.

Working on a new google site for a summer class with a bit of time to carefully create a “work space”.

Listing today’s “To Dos” to make sure I stay afloat.

Saving my drafts, ever conscious of my need to post my slice this morning.

Enjoying this month of daily writing because it is pushing me to consider different formats and different topics while continuing to reflect on my writing process!

  1. I love the “Currently” posts, they always put the reader right beside the writer. It’s like I’m peering over your shoulder. That beginning word is critical, loved the clicking and chuckling. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Lee Ann!
      I like how “Currently” lets you into my house to sit beside me . . . Almost felt like I needed to clean for company! (almost!)
      Ready for some Spring Break! ❤

  2. So much on your mind and on your to-do list! I like these lists. Enjoy the 70 degrees!!

    1. Thanks, Holly! The current temperature will have to double in order to reach 70 . . .but it’s possible. I know – I hate the frantic part of the “to do” lists but I will enjoy my four day weekend with the kids! ❤

  3. Love that these”Currently” posts are in the present. A true picture of life happening at this moment.

    1. I was thinking of them for student practice – different STRONG verbs and the whole “present” writing as well!

      Thanks for confirming that! ❤

  4. This is just wonderful – love the verbs which drive each line.

    1. Thanks, Tara, because I am really leaning towards this for student practice as well! And to see how many different verbs we could use as a group . . . More thought needed about “HOW” this could look!
