It’s Tuesday! Welcome to the Slice of Life Story Challenge

Welcome to the Slice of Life Story Challenge.

Write your post. Share it with the community. Comment on at least three other posts.

This month, I have collected some quotes from Toni Morrison to inspire us. This one comes from her 1993 Nobel lecture. I loved the importance she gives to language. Our writing matters.

For those of you who will be attending NCTE, please join us for our annual NCTE Slicer Dinner. We have some space constraints, so RSVP to Stacey — stacey[at]staceyshubitz[dot]com — sooner rather than later! As much as I love the slicing connections, I’m so looking forward to catching up with people in person!

  1. This week I fussed over my comic for hours and hours, made a million mistakes, revised a thousand times, and finally had to just stop even though the comic is missing the speech bubbles I originally planned. So… here’s my slice of life story, in the form of a wordless comic! (For any of you skeptics out there, please trust me when I say creating comics is as much work, if not more work, than writing a story in words only!)


    1. Susan- this was such a powerful post. I love the ideas of disruption and rebellion. That gray area between trying new things and staying true to who you are is an amazing place for growth- thanks for sharing!
