Friends, Bloggers, countrymen (and internationals!) – lend me your brains.
No, I haven’t turned into a zombie. What I need is your help in getting the ideas casserole stewing – so I can pick and choose the tastiest lumps to serve up steaming hot for your degustation.
OK, so the food analogy ran out of calories, but the point is this:
I have decided to challenge myself to a full month of writing. The only rule is that I must post something every day. My aim is to write interesting, entertaining and hopefully informative articles on a wide variety of topics. To this end, I’m taking suggestions. I want your ideas! You might like to read a travel story, a school-days anecdote, a look at the latest pop-culture icon. You might give me a relationship you would like to see explored in a short story. Perhaps you’re interested in my take on a famous historical event or person. Maybe you’d like me to visit a place, or store, or person and discuss my findings. You might like me to review a film, play, or public transport service. Ideas for interviews are welcome too. Basically anything goes.
I’ve decided to finish the challenge on October 13 – my birthday. It will probably go a day or two beyond this – especially if I do decide to go to that nerve-racking high school reunion. But it hopefully will give me something to look back on with pride on the anniversary of the day I came kicking and screaming into the world. So this gives me a start date of September 13.
Between now and then, I hope you’ll throw some ideas around and leave them in the comments section. I will post my ramblings here, and I will credit you if I use your idea.
Here’s to a hopefully rewarding literary challenge!
