Since I began to post challenges for Thursday Writing Essential they have been challenges with a lot of energy. We spent months on journeys, track meets and Olympics. It's time for a break. Your challenge this week is to create a post "For No Particular Reason." From the book and movie Forest Gump, one day Forest began to run. "That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run." We spend so much of our lives doing things, saying things and even thinking things for a reason. It's nice when we can do something for no particular reason. Granted responding to this challenge is in itself a reason but what you post does not need to have a reason.
Unfortunately there may not be a particular reason for this challenge but there are still a few guidelines we need to follow please.
One guideline to remember is to include the words no particular reason 8/16/2012 somewhere in the title.
Another guideline is to be sure to tag it with Thurs or Thursday Writing Essentials, Gather Writing Essential, no particular reason. Post to Gather Writing Essential.
The final guideline is to not forget that there is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
The new Thursday challenge has been set. Take your time, reflect on it and relax while creating your masterpieces. Just don't be too relaxed where you forget to submit it. Even as relaxed as we are there still is great anticipation and high expectations for this challenge. The question you need to ask yourselves my talented friends and purveyors of fine work in all genres, are you up to the challenge? (but not until after midnight of course but feel free to get ready now.)
* After there are three or more posts that have accepted the challenge I will be making a list of them and posting it to Gather Writing Essentials periodically during the next seven days.
**Any post submitted after Thursday will be accepted throughout the week as usual.
