A Challenge for First Time Slicers

Giveaway Image V1 (1)Calling all new Slice of Life writers!  We have a challenge for you!

We are nearly halfway through the 9th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.  As a new member of this community, we hope you have found your writing groove.  We hope you are living like a writer and finding the Slice of Life Stories that exist in your day-to-day life.

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 14th 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 Paula Bourque’s book, Close Writing, donated by Stenhouse Publishers!

Close Writing

Official Rules:

  • This must be your first time ever participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.
  • You may only mention one participant who has inspired you as a writer.
  • The person who you mention by leaving a comment on this post must also be a Slice of Life Story Challenge participant.
  • While the other co-authors and I certainly hope we have inspired you and made you feel welcome, we never enter ourselves into prize drawings.  Therefore, please do not mention any of us (myself, Anna, Beth, Betsy, Deb, Kathleen, Stacey or Tara) when you leave a comment on this post.
  • Please do not leave the link to your Slice of Life Story as a comment on this post.  You must leave your link on Dana’s daily call for Slices today.
  • Again, you must leave your comment by 12:00 p.m. EDT on March 14th to be entered into the raffle.
  • The winner will be chosen by a random number generator.

Thank you to Stenhouse Publishers for the generous prize!

Congratulations to first-time Slicer, terierrol, whose random number (26) was chosen.  She nominated booksandbassets.  Each Slicer will receive a signed copy of Close Writing. Congratulations!
