I hit a bit of a road block when I sat down to write my slice today. I visited Christie Wyman’s wonderful Padlet of writing ideas and was reminded of a party invitation slice from Leigh Anne Eck. Basically, you identify five items that you would bring to a slicer party and it allows slicers to get to know each other. Even though we’re more than halfway through the challenge, I love any opportunity to get to know other slicers.
Favorite book: I’ve spent a lot of time with Tanny McGregor’s book, Ink and Ideas. At first, I was intimidated by sketchnoting, but I’ve realized that it’s not about a perfect product, but instead should reflect my thinking. I would love to share my thoughts about sketchnoting with my fellow slicers.
Favorite person: My Mom because she has always supported my writing and believes that I will one day be a published author. Her support means the world to me and I know that she would encourage my fellow teacher-writers. Plus, she’d keep us well-fed with her amazing desserts that range from chocolate chip cookies and brownies to Oreo truffles and the most amazing trifles.
Favorite food or beverage: Chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven! That’s one of Mom’s specialities and there’s nothing better than a hot, ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie!
Favorite song: This one really stumped me at first. Finally, I thought about a song that I heard on the radio recently and how the lyrics spoke to me. It’s a song by Christian artist Mallary Hope titled “Me.” I also love the lyrics of her song, “Now.”
Surprise: I discovered Rocketbook notebooks completely by accident when I was Christmas shopping on Amazon. I love this reusable notebook and found that I wrote more in it than in my regular notebooks. I also love that I can scan the pages and send them to Google Drive before I erase them and start again. I would give everyone at the party their own Rocketbook and a selection of Frixon pens (which you have to use with the Rocketbook).
Will you join me at our virtual party? What will you bring?
