I want to apologize for not making this post sooner. My life has been turned up side down, with both wonderful and not so great happenings. My father was very ill in February and then both of my sisters were placed in a nursing home the first part of March.

Just before all the chaos began, I had sent in a manuscript for Slices of Our Lives to the agent who had expressed interest and received a reply that they wanted me to consider doing two chapters of a creative nonfiction approach of my personal slices of life. I sent that in and have just received word they are definitely interested in signing me to a contract for a trilogy (I also had to provide an outline of how I would present my story and I decided to go large!). We are meeting on April 30 with my attorney to finalize details.

In addition to everything else, I have been looking for employment and have had several interviews the past two weeks. I am hoping to be offered a position next week, which will add a whole dimension to my life. Unfortuanately, I am always running out of time every day as it is and have not been able to keep up Slices Of Life Sunday. A real job is going to lesson any time I do have to write and do things I enjoy.

Words can not express how much it has meant to me to have you participate this past year. If my life gets back on to some kind of a schedule, I will start back up again.

For those of you who enjoy writing prompts, I would strongly encourage you to check out Search Engine Stories. Selma, from Selma in the City, began this a few months ago. She provides such interesting prompts each week on Friday. I hope to continue participating when I can.

Again, thank you all for your support and encouragement.  Cricket

Slice of Life – week 42

apple-pie-piece1Welcome to Slice of Life Sunday -

a meme dedicated to preserving the accounts of events cut out of the lives of average people just like you from all over the word.

Wikipedia defines a slice of life story as “a category for a story that portrays a “cut-out” sequence of events in a character’s life.” It has also been defined as an “episode of actual experience represented realistically and with little alteration in a dramatic, fictional, or journalistic work.” (cp. Answers.com).

Like having ice cream with your pie, there is more to this meme than meets the eye – it’s a meme a` la mode! This meme has a larger goal in mind in addition to providing a venue for your desire to write. Please read About Me and this Meme to see how participating in Slice of Life Sunday could lead to further publishing of your writing. Then take a moment to read over the following options. Close your eyes and turn off your connections with the current world around you, and allow your thoughts to wander through the recesses of your memories. There you will find a life experience that you have been waiting to share or possibly need to revisit. Now write it. There is no need for fancy words, don’t run and get the thesaurus, just write the truth… a slice of your life

Slice of Life choices for the week of February 15, 2009 are:

1. Between a Rock and a Hard Place

2. Sixth Sense

3. Writer’s Choice – I am now seeking stories for the era of our Midlife Odyssey – our 40′s & 50′s. Do you have a slice of life to share about a midlife crisis or coming to terms with who you are?

You have all week to write your Slice of Life story. Once you have posted your Slice of Life Sunday story on your blog, come back and leave a comment with the url to your post. My true desire is for each of us to harvest wisdom from both the joy of reliving the good memories in our lives and the strength gained from gleaning what we can from the not-so-good memories and then putting them away for good. If you see a previous prompt you would like to write about, please do so and let me know.

Wisdom is the daughter of experience. ~
