It was recently pointed out to me that I should stick with topics I know for these challenges. It's true - I'm ignorant about almost everything except foreclosures. Frankly I can't imagine using that knowledge for a challenge. Fortunately, Daniel C. came to my rescue. He suggested a few topics that are perfect for a challenge. It could be sci-fi fiction or non-fiction. I think Daniel's suggestion regarding modern Space department Projects is a great idea. Here's what he wrote:
Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:
Make sure you put this (WWE, 1/23/13, Space Projects) in your title.
Be sure to tag it withÂ WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, Space Projects.Post to Gather Writing Essential.
I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.
There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If youâ€™re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what youâ€™re supposed to do and wonâ€™t think youâ€™re crazy.
Challenge: Â Write either a story or poem, fiction or non-fiction about modern Space department Projects.
BELOW ARE RESPONSES TO PRIOR CHALLENGES - CHECK THEM OUT. Â Please let me know if I missed anyone's post and I'll get it linked for next week.

You may have noticed I'm posting this on Tuesday. Â The reason is because Wednesday morning I have the office to worry about and somewhere in the world it must be Wednesday.
