A Challenge for First-Time Slicers

Calling all new Slice of Life writers!  We have a challenge for you.

We are nearly at the end of the 10th 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 stories that exist in your day-to-day life.

This community needs two things: writers and readers. Both are equally important to this community.This challenge aims to recognize both. We are asking 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 final challenge. Leave a comment on this post by Sunday, March 26th at 11:59 p.m. Tell us which Slicer has inspired you the most through the comments s/he has left on your blog.  Both you and the person you nominate will win a copy of  Clare Landrigan and Tammy Mulligan’s book, Assessment in Perspective: Focusing on the Reader Behind the Numbers, and an individual Skype session or one together, depending on your preference.

Official Rules:

  • This March must be your first time ever participating in the 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 (i.e., they must be slicing daily and have registered using the participant information form).
  • 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 (i.e., myself, Beth, Betsy, Kathleen, Lanny, Lisa, Melanie, or Stacey) 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 Melanie’s daily call for slices today and tomorrow.

Thank you to Clare and Tammy, authors of Assessment in Perspective, for the generous prize!

Thank you to all of the first-year Slicers who participated in this post.

Leah Walpuck’s commenter number was drawn. She and Jennifer Kessler will win the prizes from Claire and Tammy. Here’s what Leah had to say about Jennifer:

Aggie Kesler has been an amazing, consistent, and positive commenter on my blog throughout the Slice of Life challenge. Her regular comments are positive and uplifting, and I have loved learning a little bit more about her and her many years of slicing (I think it’s seven now!). Thanks Aggie for being such a positive part of my first Slice of Life challenge.
