In my neck of the woods, it’s been unseasonably warm recently.
But that’s OK — I know it won’t last forever!
That also makes me realize January will eventually be upon us, so it’s never too early to start thinking about the 20 Days of Chill Writing Challenge, is it?
I hope not!
We’re in November and January is right around the corner. Now, I do realize that we have two holidays to get through before, and that’s fine. But I still need to get planning and such, so this is the best way to do it.
For those who participated last year, I hope you will do so again. For those who might be looking at this for the first time, I hope you’ll consider joining us this time around.
The concept is simple enough – for 20 days during the month of January, we’ll have a different theme to write about. It’s a way to start the new year with some fun blog topics and themes.
So what is the 20 Days of Chill Writing Challenge, you may ask? I’m glad you did – so please let me explain.
During the weekdays of January (not including Jan. 1), there will be a theme for the day. This theme could be anything possible (and I will be asking for ideas of themes).
Write a post for that theme – interpreting as you see fit – and post it to your blog. Then come back here on said day and link it up. After that, go visit, comment and see what others are up to.
The link will usually go live early in the morning (EST) and be live an extra day or two.
It’s that simple.
In December, I’ll have a post announcing the full schedule with themes. This helps because if you are a go-getter, you can write many of them ahead of time and schedule them. Then you just have to remember to come back to link up.
So, at this point, I’m calling for theme ideas. Once I have ideas, I’ll put them all in a hat and draw them out. I have a bunch in there already from things I’ve been thinking and leftover from last year. I want to add more, though. I’ll try and avoid duplicates from last year (if you want to see last year’s themes, click here) [https://hoohaa.com/?p=8213]
Remember, too, you don’t have to do each day. Some people will only do a few days. Others will do them all. Which will you be?
On top of all this, I will be once again creating a t-shirt (through Teespring) and if people are interested in ordering, there will be a place and time to do it. Remember, though, if we don’t reach a certain number of sales, they don’t get printed.
If you want to submit a theme, do it in the comments below. Themes can be wacky, fun, serious, or anything else. Just please try and keep them clean.
Thanks for taking a peek and hope to see you participate!
