It’s the third day of our month-long writing challenge! Please link your Slice of Life Story, using the exact URL of the post you’re submitting today, to this post by leaving a comment before 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time today. Just scroll to the bottom of this post to leave the link to your writing for the day.
Earlier today I spent some time recording who submitted their writing yesterday, as a comment, by 11:59 p.m. I noticed there were a few people who posted under different names on the first and second day. Therefore, when you post a comment, please use the same name everyday. As you can see, there are a lot of people to keep track of for prizes, so using one consistent name when you post helps me give you credit for writing daily. In case you’re interested, here’s what the spreadsheet looks like (you may click on it to make it bigger):

Please note: We’ve turned comment moderation off for the month of March. However, if you’ve never posted a comment on TWT before, or if your comment contains more than one hyperlink, then your comment will be held for moderation. We will monitor blog comments a few times today so we can approve submissions that do not post automatically. Therefore, there is no need to re-post your comment if it doesn’t appear immediately.
