Day 13 of the March SOLSC! #SOL18

Welcome to the thirteenth day of the 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!  

Write. Share. Give.


We encourage slicers to not only write each day but also to engage in commenting throughout the month with at least three other stories left on the daily call for slices. If you are in your second, third, or fourth year as a slicer, you may still be looking for your audience. Often it is through commenting that we find people within the Slice of Life community and build strong connections. If you are looking for a wider audience, the best way to find them is to widen your reading lens and comment on more slice of life stories each day. I often find I get ideas for my own slices after reading other stories and I can tuck away the ideas for a later date. It also allows me to learn more about people within the community and get to know a wider range of writers across the globe.


Read some advice from Franki Sibberson:

I think with blogging I’ve learned that some of my writing is good and some of it is not and that’s okay.  Playing and trying new things is critical so I try to make some time to have fun with my writing, knowing that means some of my writing will not be very good!
