Specs for Slices of Life

I was just asked regarding the specs for stories for Slices of Life. I thought some of you might also be interested in my answer to that excellent question:

The primary specs are that they be stories and non-fiction. (So far, so good!)

The length is far less important to me than the quality of the content. I seek stories that connect readers to their hearts, spirits, and/or funny bones. Stories that remind them of the goodness and greatness in themselves and others. Celebrations of life, of miracles of all sizes. Stories that lift and help to heal. Examples of courage and perseverance. Stories that elicit tears of the healing or joyous kind. (I don’t ask for much, do I? ;-D! )

With Love,
Russ

      I’d be happy to experience your creation! Posting it on your blog doesn’t preclude it from being considered for one of my anthologies. Please send it to me by August 15 if possible. Thank you!

    I just saw your blog for the first time. Your banner photo is incredible. It is so inviting and real, it makes me want to go there and walk down that road. Peaceful and beckoning……

      Thank you, Myra. It is a stock photo offered by WordPress. I too love it. It says so much in a single image. May you always feel welcome at my blogs.
