Mid-March Slice Manifesto Slice of Life 15/31 #sol16

midmarch manifesto

Today’s Slice was inspired by Christy’s March Manifesto from the 2013 Slice of Life Challenge, Ruth’s Mantra: Why I Write, and a post Ruth linked to, Jeff’s Know What You’re About. Once again, House of Hawthornes provided useful instructions on Making Chalkboard Art on Picmonkey.

  1. Super manifesto. Doesn’t have to be just for the mid-challenge. Can be for any time when you are busy. “Write from pleasure and joy” is a reminder I need. i tend to become too serious when pressed for time.

    • I had planned to do a manifesto at the very beginning of the challenge, but it actually took me a couple of weeks to figure out just what I do believe and want to argue about this challenge! I think I need that daily reminder to write from pleasure and joy too. Especially with a daily challenge, it’s easy for it to become a slog.

  2. Great writing reminders! I like “don’t force a slice that isn’t ready yet”. I agree, sometimes a slice needs a few more days or longer to ripen.

  3. I really love this, thank you so much. Don’t force a slice that isn’t ready spoke to me.. I have one I’ve started 3 times… it needs some more… er.. something.

  4. Loving how different lines are speaking to different people. I like it all! each of these I have needed to hear at different times on this slice of life journey. Half way through – almost! Thank you for your wise words.

  5. Lots of truth here, I think. The idea of letting a slice “percolate” is interesting. And trying a different form (I’m stuck in a rut right now!) I’m not sure how write from pleasure, not duty, fits with Don Graves’ mantra, “Never a day without a line.” I’m having a hard time writing this year…

    • You really should! It’s actually been a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to April 1 when I don’t have to publish anything but also feeling a little sad. Such a wonderful community! Love that it’s there every Tuesday.
