A challenge has been offered…

So my sister, the newly awakened master blogger in the making (creator of the renowned Woman Wielding Words and the developing Writing Practice: Perfecting Prose and Poetry), challenged me, a mere novice in the blogging world, to a blogging challenge. I have entered the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which is a true challenge for me in several ways. For one, that requires I remember the alphabet. But tougher than that, I have to actually commit to writing not only on command, but every day. Why is this a challenge for me? Well I never really wrote that way before. Writing for me has always been something that springs forth. And idea forms, and the universe uses me as a vessel to let the idea grow. When I try to guide that creation, I feel that I fall flat. And on top of that, it happens when inspiration hits, not because I choose to make it happen. Or so it has been.

So by accepting this challenge, I not only have to make myself write regularly. I have to make myself create. I am getting a head start by forcing myself to create something daily, though admittedly it may not always take the form of writing. And to aid me further in this endeavor, my sensei (did I spell sister wrong again?) has also introduced me to other blogging gods and goddesses, that I may learn from the pros.  Such masters as Ahhsome, reinventing the event horizon, THE IDIOT SPEAKETH, athursdayschild,and reinventing the event horizon to name the first few she pointed me towards. Those few who actually view my stuff at the moment would find a journey to said pages well worth the trip.

So this is today’s effort at a daily post, though I also spent much of the day working on my other passion, namely photography (take a look here if you would like a look). Who knows, maybe I am actually on the path to creation as a way of life. I look forward to see where my current path takes me!
