Day 31 of the March SOLSC #SOL18

Welcome to the thirty-first and FINAL day of the 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!  


So many people connected with other slicers in this community. Please stay connected. Come back and slice on Tuesdays, stay in touch, keep writing! We are all better teachers, better writers, better noticers, better people when we are finding moments to reflect on and share each day. Thank you to all of you!

We at Two Writing Teachers extend a special thank you to Stacey. She is the force behind the SOLSC year after year. She envisions, plans, monitors, reminds, and manages what the rest of us do long before the month of March even begins. If we could publicly present her with a giant bouquet, we would. Instead, we are giving her a huge shout-out on this final day of the eleventh Challenge.

Another special thank you to all of our Welcome Wagon volunteers! Please consider joining this special group next year, as we couldn’t run this challenge without them.

Over the next two weeks, we will be figuring out prizes and winners. I hope that you all realize now that the prize of writing every day is so much greater than the physical prize you may win (although we all love books!) –celebrate the commitment you made to write and be a part of an amazing community! Please be sure to fill out the participant form that will be up within the next couple of days.

And finally, I lean on Neil Gaiman for my final thoughts on Day 31 of 31.

“I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.” 

-Neil Gaiman
