Who Inspires You? A Challenge for First-Time Slicers
Calling all new Slice of Life writers!
UPDATE–WINNERS ANNOUNCED BELOW!
We are closing in on another successful Slice of Life Story Challenge. We hope all our newest members have found a writing groove and a supportive community.
This community needs two things: writers and readers. Both are equally important to this community, and this challenge aims to recognize both. We are asking Slicers who are new to our community: Who 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 24th at 11:59 p.m. EDT telling us which Slicer has inspired you the most this month. Both you and the person you nominate will win a fantastic prize from the National Council of Teachers of English organization!

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. Your comment must include the slicer’s name as well as the name of the slicer’s blog or URL. For example: “Melanie, from https://justwritemelanie.blogspot.com, inspired me this month because she left an uplifting comment for me on my post.” The person who you mention, in your 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, Deb, Kathleen, Kelsey, Lanny, 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. Again, you must leave your comment by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Sunday, March 24 to be entered into this giveaway. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator. The name of the winning pair will be announced by Tuesday, March 26 at the bottom of this post.
Thank you to NCTE for the generous prize!
