Welcome to our weekly Slice of Life Story Challenge. If you’re a regular participant, then go ahead and link away. However, if you’re new, or are thinking about sharing your writing with this online community for the first time, then WELCOME. In the past few weeks, I’ve received a few emails wondering what a “slice of life” is. While I’ve directed those people to our Slice of Life Page, I’ll briefly elaborate right here.
A slice of life story is an anecdotal piece of writing. It’s written in sequential order and is about a piece of your day. Often, slice of life stories are narratives that frequently include dialogue. A Slice of Life Story is essentially a look into someone’s life at a given point in time.
We have an online community that shares slice of life stories every Tuesday by posting a link to their story. Additionally, members of the community view each other’s links and leave comments on each other’s blogs. The comments can be a personal connection you have to the writing or a compliment about the author’s writing.
I hope you’ll join us today.
