The Friday Challenge is Moving!

Yes - after giving it much thought, I feel the Friday Challenge needs to move to another day. But when you all ask hungrily? Uh....I have decided Tuesday as Tuesday is my writing day with Gwen. I thought of being scientific about it and seeing when most people went ablogging but no...   Now I have to decide what to call the Friday Challenge - I think I'll still label it that so people can find them all together when they go looking...but....why make this difficult - it will be the Tuesday Challenge. Jeesh.

so for you folks who did show up - here is the last Friday Challenge on Friday:

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letterAnd make believe it came from you
I'm gonna write words oh so sweetThey're gonna knock me off my feetA lotta kisses on the bottomI'll be glad I got 'em
I'm gonna smile and say "I hope you're feeling better"And close with love the way you doI'm gonna sit (right) down and write myself a letter(and make believe it came, though I know it's not the same)And (I'll) make believe (that) it came from you
Yes - that is what I want you all to do. I want you to write yourself a letter. In it, I want you to tell yourself why you have chosen the life of a writer and what you want to accomplish with your work. What stories you have in you to share and how you hope your words will lift others up, or amuse them, or shock them, or whatever your dreams for your work are. I want you to write words 'oh so sweet' they'll knock you off your feet. Sign it 'my wiser knowing self' and put it in an envelope and with your name on the front. Put it on your desk or pin it to a bulletin board near where you work and whenever you get low and down - pull it out and let your words knock you off your feet. For where are you when you're knocked off your feet? Why, you're on the sweet good earth - a great place to be.
Knock em dead and see you on Tuesday for the first of the Tuesday Challenges.

Tuesday Challenge! I like it. I like this challenge, too. I feel the need for some clarity right now... maybe this will help.

Jan - You know, I like your idea of the Tuesday challenge! It's unique and if it helps you, too, so much the better! Now to get started on my letter...

Write a letter to myself/ Is that anything like talking to yourself? :-)
