The 30 Day Writing Challenge

There once was a girl who lived in a sea…a sea of mediocrity.  (Can I copywrite this quote?  Consider it official.)

It’s that time of year again when I fall into an abyss of despair. No, it’s not the fact that tomorrow will most likely be our 6 th snow day of 2014.  Alas, my 1099 arrived in the mail last week.  It’s a humbling piece of paper.  There was a time in my life where I was able to funnel cash into my kids’ 529 plans.  These days, I can’t even pay the propane bill.

What is even more depressing?  I can’t even get it together with my hobby.  I only showed 2 posts for the month of January.  Can I even claim that I have a viable blog??  I vowed to myself that I would always be able to carry on a conversation at a social gathering without mentioning my kids. That I would retain just a few sparkles of interest. I am teetering dangerously close to the edge…dangerously close, people.

Therefore, I hereby declare a self State of Emergency.  As a smidgen away from epic failure in all aspects of my life (I was told I was the meanest mommy ever by all 3 kids today), I am going to at least attempt to retain a modicum of success in the hobby department.

With no further ado, I give you The 30 Day Writing Challenge…..I WILL POST A BLOG DAILY FOR the next month!  To pin myself in, here’s the topics in advance…
