Around this time of year I see a lot of writing challenges pop-up. For whatever reason we decided November is Blog Like Crazy month. 'Cause it's finally gotten cold and we're all pent up in the house bored to death? I don't know, we'll go for it.
I've never thought of participating in these challenges because they're always too vague. "Blog every day of the month!" Like okay, I'm pretty sure if I had either more time and/or creativity I would be doing that literally every month. But I don't, hence my current inconsistent and lack luster schedule. Committing to blogging every day is somehow going to give me more ideas? Or is the mechanical recitation of "Thou Shalt do this everyday" somehow going to improve my writing skills and technique? Am I missing something?
But, I've been following I am the F-Bomb for a while. It's a community of female writers based out of Birmingham, Alabama which states very generally that it is a "women's writing website." We write about music, love, dating, feminism -pretty much everything. And they have decided to day writing challenge. And this one I'll agree to because they'll give me prompts! As a insider, I'll say this too -they look like fun prompts. I like them and I'm excited and invigorated and will take the plunge even during this the month I am least able to fulfill it because I'm working all the time.
