Welcome to the fourteenth day of the 14th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!
- Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time in the United States began last night at 2:00am. The clocks “sprang forward” one hour. If you are a late night slicer, don’t forget that the deadline is midnight EST/EDT.
- Are you having trouble finding the permalink to your slice of life story post? Click here for information on how to find the permalink for your post.
- Thanks to everyone who filled out the form for the seat prize! The three winners are: Glenda Funk, Lynn Grainger, and Sara Tomasevich. These three wrote and commented every day for the first week of the 2021 Challenge and were chosen by a random number generator. They win books donated by Kane Miller.
Today’s Be Inspired post comes from Fran McVeigh at the blog, Resource-Full. Fran’s post uses a creative structure for telling a story: moving backward in time by increments. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, this strategy might be something to try.
If you want to learn more about how authors use reverse chronology to tell a story, this clip uses the movie Momento as a well-known example.
