New Blog, New Challenge

Okay, so... yeah. Blogging isn't the easiest thing in the world for me. At all. Ironic since I'm a writer, and what do I love to do more than anything else in the world? Well, besides eating chocolate and indulging in a great cup of coffee? You got it. Write! For now, I take my place among the many, many unpublished authors, who so desperately long for someone, anyone, to read and love our precious art.

All right. Enough with the sap. I've noticed as of late a great deal of my friends, including my best friend, who is also a writer and a very talented one at that, are participating in various blogging challenges. Most of which, naturally, always begin at the beginning of a month.

Well, I've decided to break tradition, and go with a challenge which will (hopefully) get me kick-started into dedicated blogger-ism. I recently read it only takes 30 days to form a new habit. Seeing as that's exactly what I need to do, I'll kick off today and the next 29 days with this fun little challenge I nabbed from another blogger's, well... blog. And before you get your knickers in a wad, she stole it from someone else, too.  So, feel free to steal it from me. While you're at it, set your own rules! Start it whenever you want!

So, there. Anarchy for all. Oh! The challenge! What shall I call it? Well, I'm craving some warm, Spring weather like nobody's business, so let's call it the Spring Fever Challenge. Now that's done, here we go:
Day 01 — Your favorite song 
Day 02 — Your favorite movie
Day 03 — Your favorite television program 

Day 04 — Your favorite book
Day 05 — Your favorite quote 

Day 06 — Whatever tickles your fancy
Day 07 — A photo that makes you happy 

Day 08 — A photo that makes you angry/sad 
Day 09 — A photo you took
Day 10 — A photo of you taken over ten years ago 

Day 11 — A photo of you taken recently 
Day 12 — Whatever tickles your fancy 
Day 13 — A fictional book 
Day 14 — A non-fictional book
Day 15 — A fanfic

Day 16 — A song that makes you cry (or nearly)
Day 17 — An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.) 
Day 18 — Whatever tickles your fancy
Day 19 — A talent of yours 
Day 20 — A hobby of yours 
Day 21 — A recipe 
Day 22 — A website 
Day 23 — A YouTube video 
Day 24 — Whatever tickles your fancy 
Day 25 — Your day, in great detail 
Day 26 — Your week, in great detail
Day 27 — This month, in great detail 
Day 28 — This year, in great detail 
Day 29 — Hopes, dreams and plans for the next 365 days 
Day 30 — Whatever tickles your fancy

I've designed a cutsie little button, stage left (that's your right, you smart little reader), you can steal, paste on your own blog, whatever. Just have fun with it, all right? Cuz that's the whole point in doing anything like this, yeah? Good. Glad we're on the same page.

Oh, and just so you know--and in case you're looking at the title of this blog, scratching you're head, sayin', "Whaaa? But I thought... I mean, it says..."--yes, yes. This is a writer's blog ( mine), and shall therefore feature all sorts of writerly folderol, including but not limited to my current WIP (works in progress, for those of you paying attention), research tidbits, and whatever happens to strike my fancy. Hope you enjoy the ride!

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,

Ok, probably because I haven't had enough coffee today, I don't know if I'm understanding this correctly. Are you challenging US to blog every day with you or are you just challenging yourself to do this every day? 'Cause, if this is a throw-down, slap-you-with-a-glove, good ol' fashioned challenge...I'm down! lol I'm up to try to blog every day - it may only end up being like a sentence, but I bet I could do it! :)

Hey, call it what you want, sugar-cakes! No, you know what? Yeah! I'm challenging YOU to do this everyday, too! *throws down gauntlet, hits big toe, swears*

Hello! Sure, I guess so! Like I said, I'm more or less randomly participating to discipline myself to blog daily, but if you feel like doing it, too, I say, "The more the merrier!" :) ~
