SOLC Day 30: Balancing Act

March 2022 SOLC–Day 30
A huge thank you to Two Writing Teachers for all that they do to create an amazing community of writers and a safe, welcoming space to write, learn, share and grow.

March in Maine has never been my favorite month.

I’m trying to focus on those signs of spring–which are everywhere–but it’s a losing battle right now. After a teaser of a day in the 60s a week or so ago, we’ve plunged back into seriously frigid weather. And I have a cold. And blah, blah, blah.

Last night I kept thinking about trying to balance the positives and negatives, and I wrote this.

  1. Love this!! We have the same situation, although not as cold, here In Georgia. This would also be a great example of showing my students how to use imagery in their writing. Great job!

  2. March is such a back and forth month. I like your layout – the end on the bottom feels heavy and the end on the top feels hopeful. Just like unpredictable March, back and forth.

    I love this because I think everyone can relate to wishing spring would be here yesterday! 🙂

    I love the layout. It’s easy to tell how well-balanced everything is! Thud. I hope mud season is more pleasant! Friday is April at last. Feel better.

  5. Love the visuals. I need a primer on such creativity. By the way, for your WordPress account, do you pay monthly to upgrade it? I don’t. And my readers get ads. Any idea how to upgrade my blog site through WordPress?

    I’m so sorry you are sick. I had it a few weeks ago and it was a long battle. Hang in there! The visual poem is perfect, even with the wambam of the negative side.

    Wishing you warmer weather and no more cold (of the sickness kind and the weather kind)! Put some funny kid stories and gorgeous photos on the positive side, it might tip the scales in the right direction!
