This is a spin-off, if you will, of the 30-day challenges that we've been seeing around. For the moment, Macky and I are going for a 10-day challenge, which is apparently more or less the minimum number of days for a person to establish some kind of habit. The goal is to produce 200-500 words a day, the sum of these words being "literary" in nature (rather than the everyday kind of blogging that we do too easily), ranging from poetry to prose, from self-contained vignettes to parts of a book project. And as Macky has clarified, this is a challenge, not a contest; the only reward we're going to get is the chance to agonize over the creation of a poem or a story that people can only love, hate or ignore. And who wants that, really?
We do, I suppose. So in my case I'm going to work on parts of a short story that I've never gotten around to beginning. Since this is a work-in-progress, I beg your indulgence. And if you've been tagged, that means we're waiting for you to take part.
