31 Day Writing Challenge: Trying New Things

I love October.  It’s the time of year that the temperature drops below broiling (at least in Texas.  usually.), it’s the beginning of beautiful, glorious autumn, and it marks the start of the holiday season.

All of those things combined are pretty awesome, but I also look forward to the 31 Day writing challenge that the Nester hosts every year in October.  This will be my fourth year participating (you can see my previous topics here, here, and here), and it’s always challenging and stressful and hard.  But it’s also invigorating and stimulating and rewarding, so I find myself looking forward to it every year as a means to breathe a little life into my writing. I love to write, but sometimes I need to remind myself of that fact.  So here I am, October 1st, and the past few months have been HARD.  I feel like schooling and life has run over me like a bus. A large one.

So this year I’ve decided on a topic that will (hopefully) be fun, but not require more time than I currently have to give.


I’m a bit of a list lover so I should be able to easily find 31 new things to try and cross off this month.  I’m going to try and step out of my comfort zone a little, pick up some new habits, and stop the procrastinating all at the same time. I’m excited to start – feel free to pick a topic of your own and join the challenge. Or you can browse the blog lists for some interesting topics if writing isn’t your thing.

You can follow my series by subscribing to my email list (top right corner), via Bloglovin or Facebook.

I’ll try to link each post back to this page to provide a complete index.

Stay tuned for the day one challenge.

  1. I almost named my series this very same thing! I’m basically trying something new almost every single day this month as well, so I’m excited to see what you will chose. I’m going to attempt to try things that might normally be out of my comfort zone, and see how it goes. Good luck!
