Applauding New Slicers #sol17 Day 25/26

A lemon slices jigsaw puzzle for New Slicers, other slicers and anyone who drops by. My bad for not embedding -- that's late night slicing for you. There is no special occasion unless March 25 has special significance other than home stretch for slicers -- pantsers and planners, early morning and late night slicers alike. New Slicers aren't new anymore and belong to one or more of those categories.

Call this a thank-you to my own group of New Slicers for making the #sol17 Challenge special -- or just an un-birthday present for all. Virtual champagne was an option (maybe on the last day) but a slices puzzles seems more appropriate.

Benefits of doing jigsaw puzzles|Brainbreaker
Writing is puzzle solving, revision more so. "Benefits of doing jigsaw puzzles" includes more than few, including meditation, also ascribed to slice blogging.  More about jigsaw puzzles, their history and examples for anyone interested.

Salute the new slicers, cheer them on to the March 31 finish line, congratulate finishers and and plan to see them again next challenge, perhaps Tuesdays, perhaps even as Welcome Wagon Volunteers. If you've sliced before, give a thought to volunteer. Do it as much for yourself as for the new slicers. You'll get as much or more out of the experience. I would not have made it through the month without them. 

While you're at it, check out their blogs, leave comments -- tell them I sent you.


2017 is the tenth year aka #sol17 of the Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC) hosted by Two Writing Teachers (TWT). Slicers write and post a "slice of life" before the 11:59 ET deadline every day during the long month of March. The rest of the year, "slicers" write and post Tuesday slices. In between (and during) challenges, TWT features regular articles on writing and teaching.

During the month of March, a TWT slice icon tops my blog sidebar and usually another, sometimes different ones here -- t

Now see how the others sliced it up their Saturday on day 25 of the 10th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge
