Change of Plans

Today is day 3 of the March Slice of Life challenge.  Please visit Two Writing Teachers to read other Slice of Life stories.



I've been thinking about today's post all day.  I've rehearsed it in my head over and over.  I've thought about the details I wanted to include, memories that just have to be in my post.

I told myself that I'd write as soon as I got back from class.

And then I saw the mail.

I think this might be one of my favorite Christmas presents.  After reading several posts from Franki Sibberson about how much she loves this magazine, I added a subscription to The Horn Book to my wish list.  I know, some women want expensive jewelry.  Not me, I'm quite content with this gem (no pun intended).


So, I hope you'll forgive this very short post.  I'm really feeling the need to dive into my newest issue. Who knows, maybe it will give rise to a different Slice of Life story.
