Taking my writing into a different direction

6:50 p.m.

A nap after subbing today at Churchill High School has me somewhat refreshed and ready to tackle today’s zero to hero thirty day challenge.  Day 22: Draft a post for (another) blogging event

Today’s challenge: Find a blogging event (try our Blog Event Listings) and throw your hat into the ring. After poking around, I asked myself the basic question: what kind of commitment do I want. Even though we’re more than half way through with January, there’s a daily blog over Blog Her: at http://www.blogher.com/feel-pressure-januarys-nablopomo. Just read the fine print on that and the deadline was the fifth…Perhaps they will do it again in February…It did get me to join yet another blogging group.

And then there’s the Weekly Writing Challenge: Lunch Posts

<

p>For this the assignment is called, Take a Bite Out of This Week’s Challenge

For this week’s writing challenge, take a cue from O’Hara and write a short(er) post during your lunch hour. During this limited period of time, take a look at your surroundings and document what you see.

It is 12:10 in New York and I am wondering
if I will finish this in time to meet Norman for lunch
ah lunch! I think I am going crazy
what with my terrible hangover and the weekend coming up

The instructions are rather straight forward for the weekly writing challenge. To participate, read the challenge instructions and write at least one post in response. Tag your post with DPchallenge and include a link (http://dailypost.wordpress.com/category/writing-challenges/)

 to this post to generate a pingback. Make sure your post has been specifically published in response to this challenge. We might just highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed on Fridays, or in our monthly newsletter.

I’m finished up another cup of coffee, though every cell in my body screams

Don’t do it. It’s too late. You know what happens

When I drink coffee too late

Meanwhile, Lucy, the Lovely Yellow Labrador snores loudly

American Idol. Guess I’ll call this done.
