I AM a Writer #SOL17 Day 26

I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC; #SOL17) 
hosted by Two Writing Teachers
Each day for the month of March I will be posting a "Slice of Life". 
Please feel free to stop back and check out my other posts here.

Last night I was channel surfing for some late night television watching & stumbled across the movie Julie & Julia. I saw the movie when it came out several years ago, but haven't watched it since, so I left it on.

I quickly felt connected as the character in the movie decides to start a daily blog. Throughout the movie I kept making connections to my own experience through this Slice of Life challenge.

My favorite part by far, however, was when Julie, after having an article about her in the New York Times, comes home to 65 messages on her answering machine. This is when (with the help of her husband) she realizes- SHE IS A WRITER!!

I've written and posted on this blog for 26 days in a row- I AM A WRITER!!

My fellow slicers- WE ARE WRITERS!!

Keep writing...


  1. We write because there is a calling deep inside that stirs our hearts to write. I love your commitment.

  2. Krista,
    Thank you for the encouragement. It's been a tough week for me, and I haven't felt so much like a writer. It's not a habit for me, as I so often just ignore the tug and carry on without writing. I appreciate your post, though.

    Keep up the great work!

  3. I haven't seen this movie in a long time, and now I want to rent it... too late tonight, but I will soon. Thank you for cheering on all of us writers!!!

  4. I am going to watch the movie now.. thank you!
