The Slice of Life Writing Challenge 2021!

I have been participating in the Slice of Life Challenge for many years but once my daughter was born, I found it really hard to make time to write and spend quality time with her after school too. I had a revelation that we could write together during the month of March and it was the best idea! It was a special time we shared together each day. I found that her confidence as a writer changed drastically and her love for writing has continued to grow each day since.

For those of you who haven’t met us before, here we are…

When I asked Marlowe if she wanted to introduce herself, this is what she wrote…

My name is Marlowe! I live on Mars! I’m an astronaut! I have a pet alien! Ha ha! Just joking! I will tell you tomorrow!

If you followed us last year, you will notice that her sense of humor hasn’t changed much, but her love of exclamation marks has been discovered.

As for me, I love to write poems. I am a rule bender by nature and I feel like poetry allows me to bend those pesky writing rules. I am looking forward to sharing little slices of our life and writing journey together with you.

  1. I’m so glad my favorite mother/daughter writing duo is back! She is coming along really well as a writer…so excited to see her writing this month (and yours).

  2. I love that you and Marlowe are writing together! What a great idea! I will look forward to reading more posts from a martian with a pet alien and a poet mom! Happy slicing!
