Slice of Life

Slice of Life writing deals with a describing a moment in time. This needs to be framed with what happens just before and just after in order to stay within the moment and give the piece of writing a suitable structure. Slice of Life writing is highly descriptive, using the senses, painting pictures in the reader's mind with carefully selected adjectives and adverbials, the best use of precise nouns and powerful verbs, onomatopaeia, alliteration and suitable simile, metaphor or personification (depending on the level of expertise of the author). The reader should be able to get an idea of the author from the writing (the author's voice). Above all, the author should 'show, not tell' in order to give the reader a more rewarding experience.
