Every Tuesday my Two Writing Teachers colleagues and I host the Slice of Life Story Challenge. Teachers from all around the world participate in sharing a story each week. My current writing goal is to create a comic each week. To see all my comics, click here.

Please note: My slice for this week isn’t a story! But I do hope that by the end of the summer, these books will sum up the story of how I spent my summer. It’s an aspirational slice of life.

Pond Skimming: Tuesday Slice of Life Story Challenge

Once again, I am learning from mentor texts. Grant Snider’s layouts and style heavily influenced the look of this comic and others I have created. And the book The Gutsy Girl, by Caroline Paul (writer) and Wendy MacNaughton (artist) continues to be the perfect mentor text for me, for both the content (adventures!) and the style (funny!).

Writing Time: Tuesday Slice of Life Story Challenge

This week, I drew inspiration from another of my favorite mentor authors. Wendy MacNaughton’s work inspires me to use comics to make sense of the chaos of daily life.
