I feel stuck about what to write about today. It’s not really a writer’s block, but more of indecision. I skipped my Silent Sunday post this week to write a post filled with text. Now, I’m wondering if that was such a good idea. One of our fellow slicers, Lainie Levin, encouraged me to post my photographs on Sunday like I normally do – stating that they are a “form” of writing, if I am paraphrasing her comments correctly. And, truly, I think she’s right. Picture books are considered to be part of the world of writing, aren’t they? Many picture books convey the meaning of the story with few, if any words, just pictures. My Silent Sunday posts usually include a theme, so in a sense they do “tell a story.”
Yesterday, another slicer from teacherswrite.com posted drawings for their slice. When I commented on them doing so, supporting their decision to post drawings not words, their return comment was that “anything is a slice if you make it one.” I do know that as well.
But, I am wondering if my silent Sunday posts do more than just post some nice photographs. I think it’s a time for me to reset and re-center for the week. If I had posted photos on Sunday, I would have a post today because the words I wrote on Sunday would have become Monday’s and Monday’s would have become Tuesday’s. Photography is another hobby of mine and I use it almost daily, taking in all the natural wonders that surround me with a digital click.
Still, I’m on the fence about posting only photographs on Sunday. Luckily, I have a few more days to think about it.
As far as topics for today’s post, I contemplated the following:
Making Apple Cider
Going to a Bat Cave
Maple Syrup Making
Is a return to keto necessary or, not?
Orchids ( I have one blooming now!)
None of the above topics really struck a chord this morning, so I’ll leave the ideas for another day. In the meantime, I think provided a slice about slicing. Wouldn’t you say?
Today is day 9 of 31 of the Slice of Life Story Challenge hosted by TwoWritingTeachers.org. Thank you for creating such a supportive community of writers!
