My Percentages

Today is my last day of participating in the 2018 March Writing Challenge. I’m heading off to visit my daughter in France for Spring Break. I promise to write daily in my journal but I personally want to be disconnected from the internet as we travel. So today, I want to take time to offer my thanks as if it were March 31st:

Thank you to the TwoWritingTeacher who are really Betsy, Beth, Deb, Kathleen, Lanny, Melanie, and Stacey. This is my fifth year and I so appreciate the space you have created and maintain so I can write and receive comments. I so appreciate the community you have harnessed. I trust this community and humbly I share my writing because of the trustworthy space you have created.

Thank you to all the writers participating in the 2018 March Challenge. I love all the reading I did  this March.  I am always amazed by how the reading of other’s writing shapes me as a writer.

Reflecting on my writing today, I took time to notice what I wrote about across the 20 days. In the spirit of percentages that Fran wrote about days ago, I have written a percentage poem. Click HERE to see my inspiration from Fran.

My posts this March
ended up being
15% about my house
20% about school
and 15% about the conference I attended
from March 8-10th.
15% were opinion pieces
only 1 or 5%, a poem.
10% reflections on my life
15% reflections about using technology
and 5% or 1 entry, as Top Ten piece
(maybe something Dave Letterman could enjoy!)
Now,  I’m off to France to play with the slicer,
also know as Present Perfect
but who I call “my Anne!”
I look forward to sharing my Parisian adventures
through slices on Tuesdays
in April and beyond.

    I will miss your slices but look forward to hearing about all of your travel fun. I am hopeful that I will have easy wifi access on my trip- otherwise, my slicing may be in my notebook too. Have fun with Anne!

    I’ll miss you on TWT but what a nice decision, to journal but disconnect from electronics. Enjoy Present Perfect and your travel adventures! Can’t wait to hear more when you return.
    Later I’ll ask you how you feel about these writing percentages. What do they tell you?

    Have a lovely trip. I love Paris. I quit slicing last year in the middle of the month to take a trip to Europe, and next year I’ll quit in the middle of the month to travel to China. It’s important to unplug and experience the world. Safe travels.

    Have a wonderful trip, Sally. I’ll look forward to hearing all about your adventures when you get back.
    The percentage idea is so interesting – it is a great way to reflect on our writing topics and interests.

    I’m so glad I stopped in to read this, Sally. Have a wonderful trip–do good to disconnect and enjoy the one you’re with and the place where you are. Fran’s percentage poem was fun–had me thinking too. It’s a nice way to reflect on what we spend our time writing.

    I love how you reflected back on your month’s posts with your percentage poems. Have a wonderful time visiting your daughter. I can’t wait to read about your adventures!

    Thank you, Sally for introducing me to SOL. YOU have been my inspiration! What a great way to wrap up and reflect on a month of writing (note to self). Safe travels to Paris. I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures with Anne once you return.
