Thoughtful Thursday: A Tweet Challenge

Thoughtful Thursday: A Tweet Challenge

Thoughtful Thursday was inspired by Reading is Fun Again. I recently purchased the book 642 Tiny Things to Write About, compiled by The San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, as a way to challenge myself and keep the spirit of Thoughtful Thursday alive. Feel free to join in.   Boil down Hamlet, Shakespeare’s longest play to a tweet. Power-Hungry Uncle. Mad Prince. Drowned Girlfriend. Poisoned Mother. Death consumes all. Fortinbras for the win. Now tweet the plot of the original Star Wars Luke, Leia, Han and a Wookie go on adventures to save the galaxy, I think. Not really sure, I watched Star Trek. #LiveLongAndProsper Tweet the story of your life…so far. Former Minnesotan becomes a master organizer from Iowa. #storyofmylife Tweet your day, so far. Have you done this? How about that? When will you do this? What about that? NOTHING IS EVER ON TIME! #mylifeismadness Twitter 5 Facebook 11 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0

Challenge Accepted: My 2014 Reading Challenges Update #10 + The State of My Blog

Another month in 2014 almost gone and a few weeks closer to my 1st Blogoversary. Sitting here in October, I would never have imagined that I would have posted over 40 book reviews and be AHEAD on writing those reviews. The next review I write will post in 2015. Over the next month I’m working on developing a challenge with Julie and Rose over at ChapterBreak.net. Be on the lookout for that in November. And I’ve started thinking about some kind of giveaway for my Blogoversary. Not sure what it will involved yet, but if you have ideas, suggestions or advice, please share in comments!
