Oh dear! What will today's challenge be? I really have no idea or worse - I have several ideas. So, hmmmm....I'll just take a minute here and throw the Friday Challenge dart at the Friday Challenge board and see what it hits. Please take a few minutes while I do this to hum 'Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes' or "Oh, My Darling Clementine".
humming noises going on here
bingo bango she hits the board
no - she doesn't - it bounced off
yesssireeeee bob! Success!
Drum roll or more humming, your choice.
Today's Friday Challenge is - write a letter to your hero or heroine (dead or living, real or ficticious). Tell them about yourself - mainly what makes your socks run up and down. What your passions are - why you think they might be interested. After you've written it, fold it up, put it in an envelope, put it on a table in your house and then - being the person you wrote to - pick it up with a "oh a letter for me - how delightful!" open it up, read it and yes - answer it. When you are being your hero(ine) please remember that you would like to encourage this person in their endeavors. You might be more or less kind as you do this - this depends on your personal style - Churchill might be gruff but he isn't to be dismissive, Emily Dickens might be slightly ephemeral but she will hold your best interest at heart. You can do this. It is important to remember these things - you need to have produced a real piece of paper with words on it, either handwritten or typerwrited, in both cases. If you type one you might write the other depending on your hero(ine) and what they might be naturally doing. And you have to put it in an envelope and so on. I want it to feel completely real to your wonderful right brain. OKEY DOKEY! That's it. Two letters...
post script - you do understand, dear readers, that last week's challenge is actually the Meta-Challenge. All others will be to contribute to an understanding of what we are really here for this time around?
