SLICE 2014 - 28 of 31 - At 4pm












At 4pm 
spring break starts.
If you are looking for me
I might be,
riding in the car
for a very long time.

At 4pm 
spring break starts.
If you are looking for me
I might be,
picking my first
vacation reading.

At 4pm 
spring break starts.
If you are looking for me
I might be,
trying out 
my new running shoes.

At 4pm 
spring break starts.
If you are looking for me
I might be,
relaxing in the sun.

At 4pm 
spring break starts.
If you are looking for me
I might be,
steeping my new
blueberry pineapple ice tea.

At 4pm 
spring break starts.
If you are looking for me
I might be,
writing about 31 Things.


I shared this format for writing earlier this week, borrowed from my friend Cathy.  I think as writers we need to find out formats that work for us and then play around with the words and phrasing.  It was fun to think about changing this format to fit my new adventures that lay ahead.  31 Things is an online course I bought and never quite worked on from Big Picture Scrapbooking.
