30 Day Challenges

ImageThis here is a 30 Day Blog Challenge I found on “Reflections on Life Thus Far” here on WordPress. I liked the questions (or prompts) quite a lot I decided to try it out. Plus this will help me with writing here everyday, other than my “A Writer’s Day” Posts.

So I’m thinking about doing this one, using the prompts for both fiction and non-fiction posts and stories. I will try my best to keep up with it and actually do it each day, every day for the month of September. Since it already started though, I’ll have to do two tonight. Woo!

I also found another 30 Day Challenge. But this one is strictly for creative writing prompts. So I believe I’ll try and do both. If I can’t keep up with both for the whole month, I’ll just stick to the Blog Challenge, and maybe save the creative writing one for October.

I’ll be posting these here everyday, and might even follow them up at the end with a Prompt of my own for anyone to try.

I found the Creative Writing Challenge here. And here it is…
