Against the laws of time and space, and also against my better judgement, I signed up to write the 3-Day novel contest over the Labour Day long weekend. The fledgling idea that struck me in the alley behind the dollhouse last week has sprouted enough feathers that I think I can coax the darn thing off the ground. That said, I can’t guarantee I won’t end up with a smoldering pile of plot line by Monday afternoon, but I only have $55 and a long weekend to lose here. (For the curious among you, smoldering plot line smells a little like burnt hair and a lot like the Easter egg you didn’t find until August last year.)
In light of this decision, I hereby issue a challenge to all Blue Speckled Pup readers, far and wide. Go do something really hard. Attempt something scary. Conquer something that intimidates the heck out of you. Get outside your comfort zone for a few hours and see how much you can accomplish. Chances are, you’re far more incredible than you’re willing to admit.
Let me know what you attempt, and please be sure to share how awesome you feel when you’ve reached your goals. We love comments here at BSP! If you succeed, you have my full permission to write “Rock Star” on a t-shirt with green Sharpie and strut around your house.
Heck, since I’m feeling generous today, I’ll personally ship a green Sharpie to the person who wrestles down the best challenge. You’ll have to supply your own t-shirt.
