Introduction to Another 31 Days!
Last year - September 2014 - I barely knew what a "BLOG" was; much less have one of my own! Following the example of a friend, who created one to show sample scrapbook layouts and cards, I set one up...just for the fun of it!
A few days later, I read about a challenge for October - "write31days". The idea was to choose a topic and write every day for the whole month!
Well, that would surely take some planning!
So, I pulled out journaling, research and poems that I had previously written over the past 10 or so years, as we traveled on our "journey with dementia". The topic found, I managed to create a "button" and get it linked properly - something new for me - again!
And I managed to write a post every day with the title, "31 Days of Dementia's Demands"!
Through persevering for that month-long writing challenge, my passion for writing was born - or "re-born" since I have been writing different things for many years; I had just never done any blogging!
It is now a year later, and I have over 300 posts! That number will increase because ...
... I have signed up to "do it again", Five Minute Friday style! Following along with Kate Motaung and the FMF group, we will use the word prompts for "Free Writes" ... writing every day for five minutes only!
So "31 Days of Free Writes" is my topic for the 2015 series; I should be able to get that done!! In fact, we already have the word prompts in advance (except for the FMF days) and I have already started drafting out ideas.
So, check out Kate's blog for prompts and other information; and follow along
