Challenge accepted

Rizzachill suggested challenging ourselves to resume writing on a daily basis. So, being a goer, here I am.

Let’s be honest, my writing isn’t what one would call compelling, or even interesting really. But that’s ok. This is really for me to attempt to exercise a little creativity. Very little as the case may be.
You can expect posts about roller derby, role-playing games, television, the Winnipeg Jets, the Minnesota Vikings, and whatever other randomness strikes me.


Full disclosure, I’m starting a few days late so these first couple posts are being backdated. Hey, at least I’m honest about my cheating.

Creative expression challenge

Over the past two days, I went back and re-read hundreds, thousands of my old tweets. It should come as no surprise that it left me feeling quite nostalgic.
I miss the interactions I had with many of those people, particularly my friends Bonnie and Betty

You, my faithful readers, know that I just adore my friend, Betty. She’s been someone who I’ve leaned on, and in turn supported. Betty possesses a creative soul, but has not always found the time, inspiration, or motivation to give expression to the butterfly within her.

So, caught up in the spirit of all those past tweets, I asked her if she was currently pursuing any kind of creative challenge, and if not, would she be open to one.
She was game, so I’ve issued her the following challenge:

Phase 1: Write a short story (between 800 – 3000 words) with a title selected from the following:

One More River to Cross
Girl On A Raft
The Magic Pencil

I have two more phases in mind, but I didn’t want to overwhelm her up front. She has until Dec 7 to deliver her story.
