New Slicer Challenge

TWT SOLSC Prize Image 2015 - V2 copyCalling all new Slice of Life writers!  We have a challenge for you!

Now that we are nearly half-way through the 8th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge, I know you have gained a good insight into this incredible writing community.  I hope you have been welcomed with open arms, and I hope you have been inspired by many to keep writing.

This community needs only two things: writers and readers.  Both are equally important to this community.  Our mid-month challenge aims to recognize both.  We are asking those Slicers who are new to our community:  Which Slicer has encouraged you this month?  Who has left a comment on your blog that moved you?  Who has inspired you to keep writing?  Who has lifted you up as a writer?


First-time Slicers, please nominate a fellow Slicer to be your co-winner in this mid-month challenge!  Leave a comment on this post before Monday, March 16th at 12:00 p.m. EDT.  Tell us which Slicer has inspired you the most through the comments he or she has left on your blog.  Both you and the person you nominate will win a signed copy of Kate Messner’s newest book, 59 Reasons to Write, donated by Stenhouse Publishers!

I want to nominate carriedotcom. She responds to my slices almost daily and she notices the small nuances in my writing and often shares a connection that she can personally make. I have actually started following her blog as well for some inspiration. She writes from and her comments are received as ccahill2013. Thanks CarrieDot!
