Day 19 of the March SOLSC #SOL17

Today is our 19th day of the SOLSC. We are glad you’re here.

If you’re sharing your students’ slice of life stories, please head over to the Classroom Challenge.


  • Please see Melanie’s post from yesterday  about this weekend’s commenting challenge and an amazing prize. If you comment on 60 posts you’ll be eligible to win a chance to attend a Highlights Foundation workshop.
  • As you are enjoying the comments left on your posts, please try to visit the blogs and comment on the posts of slicers who comment on your slices. 


  • Former TWT co-author Tara Smith wrote a slice entitled Choose Kind. I love both the message and the craft move of repeating and building on a sentence. Perhaps you will consider your own “Choose Kind” post today, or try to repeat and build onto your central message throughout your slice.
  • Click here if you need topic ideas.




Please use the SAME email/username information on all of your March comments.


Prizes will be given away at the conclusion of the month-long Slice of Life Story Challenge.  You’ll be eligible for a prize if:

1.     You fill out the participant data form, which went live on February 19th.

2.     You comment ONLY ONCE on the daily call for Slice of Life stories (3/1 – 3/31/17).

3.     You sign a Slice of Life Story Challenge Participation Pledge on April 1st.  (We’ll post the pledge and will ask you to “sign.” You’ll sign by leaving a comment certifying you wrote and linked daily, as well as commented on at least three other Slicers’ writing daily.)

  • In order to be in the running for a prize at the end of the month, you must leave the link to your slice of life story by 11:59 p.m. EDT.
    • Only links left by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time will count when you’re signing-off on the participation pledge on April 1st.
  • The call for slices goes up at midnight EDT. Everyone has the same 24-hour window to post, regardless of the time zone in which they live.
  • Please play fair and leave only one link each day.
