I generally don’t like resolutions. But I do like their cousin, annual challenge! I’ve chosen several challenges to pursue over the past few years, and think its valuable to keep the trend going. I have updated my challenges from 2018, and am armed this New Year’s Day with a mimosa and a small bowl of Chex mix.
To begin this year’s NaBloPoMo, I am going to do something I’ve never done before: formulate a picture of the person I am trying to reach. Of my typical reader. Of you.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have begun reading On Writing by Stephen King. I haven’t read anything from him in years, but when I was in junior high, I read King voraciously. Carrie, Firestarter, Christine, IT, I skirted around Cujo (but I’m already scared of dogs so I didn’t work on it too hard), and the four novellas from The Four Seasons.
That is, the top 10 things I wish I could experience again for the first time. And sex isn’t one of them. (The embarrassed fumbling, though sweet, was not the best.) As always, they are not in any particular order.
What would the Super Hero Version of you look like? Would you be muscley? Wear a breastplate of gold?
I’m sure this is a common question in most circles of friends (otherwise, who are you hanging out with?) When I saw the title of today’s daily prompt, “Literate for a Day,” and it made me think of what my superpower would be, if I was a super powersy person.
