How to Pretend to be a Writer and The Bloggers Challenge.

I like to pretend that I am a writer. It is one of my most favorite things even though I do fail miserably at it. I fail because of the thing that writers do, that I don’t do nearly enough of. Writers, well, write. Add this to the huge number of silly challenges that are running around the internet these days. Who hasn’t heard of the Tide challenge, right? So, after being woken up by a book falling on my head, a brilliant idea stuck me.

It was a book of 300 writing prompts, by the way.

In all of the different challenges running around on Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, ect. There never seems to be any silly challenges for bloggers. Blogging seems to have become a serious endeavor. It has lost the fun. Oh, there are other challenges for writers out there. NaNoMo is coming up again this year, and completing a novel in 30 days is indeed a challenge, but its not something that really fits in a blog, and while it is an accomplishment, it is very much a sprint. At least, it feels that way to me and I am not much of a sprinter.

So, I propose this challenge, and the rules are going to me simple for those who are willing to join me in this challenge.

This challenge is going to take 300 days, (totally not related to the book that fell on my head, I swear). To complete the challenge, everyday we shall:

  • Select a writing prompt.
  • Write a minimum of 500 words on the prompt
  • Post the prompt on a blog with the day of the challenge and the prompt in the title. If the prompt is a picture, include the picture.

And there is the most important. No skipping days. If we miss a day, even if it is just one, the challenge has been failed, and we will be set back to Day One.

Now, lets see who will last to Day 300.
