This month, I'm participating in the Slice of Life challenge with Two Writing Teachers. If you want to participate, you can link up at their Slice of Life Story Post or you can head on over there to check out other people's stories and follow along with the fun. For more information on what a Slice of Life is about, you can go here.

I love mentor texts...but I made the mistake of watching these absolutely amazing spoken word performances and now I feel like such an amateur!
Which reminds me, while mentor texts are awesome, we have to be conscious of this when using mentor texts. We have to remind them that ourselves and other writers to use mentor texts as examples but not to get overwhelmed. We can all get better at our craft and we are all at different places. Phew, I needed this pep talk myself!
If you have some time, these truly moved me and brought me to tears and are exactly what I'd to accomplish someday.
