This March I will be participating in the month-long Slice of Life Challenge. Each day I will be posting a ‘slice’ from my life. This year I am using Natalie Goldberg’s book Old Friend from Far Away: The Practice of Writing Memoir to provide my sparks for memoir writing. Each post will be a quick write using one of Natalie’s exercises to practice the skill of noticing and remembering.
Begin a 10 minute writing with No Thank You. Every time you get stuck write No Thank You and keep going.
If you are trying to avoid political posts this won’t be your slice du jour–sorry, not sorry.
What comes to your mind when you start with the phrase, “No thank you”?
