The Nester has hosted a writing challenge link-up on her blog for five Octobers. It's a challenge to write about one topic for 31 days straight. (It's definitely a challenge, at least it would be for me! It would be difficult for me to stick to one thing only because I'm a rabbitual writer, meaning I bounce around from one thing to the next like a rabbit. Ask my high school English teacher, she'll tell you. Also, "rabbitual" is my entry for the Urban Dictionary.) I've wanted to participate since I first heard of it two years ago, but I've had a hard time coming up with a viable topic. What would I write about every day for a whole month?
This year, she's created categories and when you sign up you should fit in under one of them. Here are her categories and a few possible ideas bouncing around in my head.
House & Home
Simplicity & Organizing
Too Awesome to be Categorized
For 31 days straight I could take before and after pictures of little projects I'm (I use that word loosely) doing around the house. Believe me, I could come up with 31 little projects that need doing. Probably 3100. I wouldn't have to actually do a project every day since the objective is to write every day, not do every day.
I could write about things I'm learning to do, like sewing, and things I want to really get into, like making bread or being committed to exercising every day.
I could write about what I'm cooking for my family and share recipes. I could share my experience of not eating sugar for a month. October Unprocessed is also next month and I could share a month of eating entirely unprocessed.
Or I could just write about me. I could share funny stories and memories and my endless supply of crazy dreams.
What would you read? I'm open to suggestions. If you're a blogger and participating, what are you writing on? (I promise not to steal your idea!)
P.S. Mayhem is not a topic. He's a regular occurrence here and will remain so. This is "extra."
