I like challenges. I like checking things off lists. I like when I have structure. I do far better with structure. This whole being on my own with writing, healthy life-styling, and being an adult is kind of hard. So I set out on Google to find some inspiration. (Don’t judge, you know you use Google to seek the ultimate answer to “Life, the Universe, and Everything”) Sadly, I didn’t find the answer to being an adult. What I found on Google and other blogs, like many other blogs, was 30 Day Writing Challenges.
A writing challenge? A structured set of topics to write about daily? AND I can check them off of a list? This is just what I need. The standard writing challenges either lean towards teens or actual authors seeking inspiration to get them out of a slump. I opted to blend the two and create my own challenge list. You are all welcome to join me. I know I am starting this nine days into a month and not on the first as would be the norm for someone starting a 30 day challenge, but I guess I am just wild like that. Totally crazy off the chain. Shaking it up.
I must admit the part of me with OCD is cringing. I am not starting on the first. It’s not a Sunday. It’s not the beginning of the year. I have yet to fully create my 30 Day Writing Challenge list. I am just throwing myself out here and hoping for the best. This ought to be good. Or it could be bad, but I am leaning towards good in an effort to calm that screeching OCD voice in my head.
Day One will be posted in a bit, as well as the list of posts we get to look forward to! The creativity is just ready to bubble up and out. Or maybe that’s the weird anxiety I am pretending not to have. Either way, it’s something.
