Starters with No Finish

Did you ever have a half dozen starters to a slice but nothing afterward? Here are my starters, maybe you can use one:

  1. Sometimes I wonder...(Why did we buy a 16 foot top beam for the swing set, OY).
  2. And now I wait...(Wrote an article, waiting for the editor to reply, but my editor is about to have twins, OY).
  3. Where is this all going? (We have a pile the size of a small planet that needs to be removed from my driveway, NOW! OY).
  4. When is that going to happen? (We need a new roof, but my husband is handy and is determined we will do it ourselves. Money saver yes, time saver, OY)!
  5. Are you having trouble hearing me because it looks like you just did the opposite of what I said. (Yeah, it's summer and yeah, my kids are getting the best of me, and the worst of me, OY).
  6. Let's plan a trip to...(We are planning a mystery trip for my kids, should be fun, I hope they love it. Someday I will have to tell you the story of the mystery trip my parents took my sister and I on, pretty epic...right Lori? Pretty sure she just said, OY).


  1. It was so much fun to read this!
    There are some "money saver" projects happening and not happening around here!
    And I know what you mean about a bunch of starters but nothing afterward!

  2. Love this, Betsy, and with imagination, you really don't need any endings. We can all add in our own! Good luck with the roof-OY!

  3. I love how this slice is set up!!! And I really want to hear more about the mystery trip! It sounds so exciting!!!!

  4. How fun is this? I think we can all relate to these starters. (I think I'd call the roofers. LOL)


  5. I'm not able to send a direct message to you so I thought I would leave a comment here...

    I followed the link to your "Building Independence in Young Writers" presentation in a tweet...

    The way it is presented is gorgeous! It looks so good!

    The content is beyond excellent!

    Thank you for sharing it online.

    Only wish is that I could have heard you!


Thanks for the comment love!
