Day 27 Twenty-seven Sentences
June 27, 1927. On this date the United States Marine Corps adopted the English bulldog as their official mascot.
Write about any subject. You can write about a Marine, a bulldog, or an Englishman if you’d like. You can write about anything! But you must write exactly twenty-seven sentences. No more. No less.
Alternative: Write a poem with 27 words or syllables.
Since I can write about anything I choose today, I choose to ask you a few questions.
- Have you enjoyed the June 1-30 Challenge?
- What did you like?
- What would you suggest I change if I do it again next year?
- Would participate if I host it again next year?
Honestly, I created the challenge when I thought I’d be home and bored this month! But then a surprise trip to Denver came up in the middle of the month. Plus I am doing two bible studies this month that each take quite a bit of prep and study time. It rained a bunch this sprin, which is a huge change after five years of drought! My yard requires more work than its needed in years. I’m finding it hard to complete every challenge! I’ve skipped a couple. And I have a project for a publisher I’m supposed to be working on, which seems to be taking up all my writing juices.
Yes, you read that correctly. A publisher asked me to work on a possible book project – a bible study to help grieving people as they journey through grief. I have this month and part of next to see what I can come up with. I’ll turn it I around mid-July. I honestly wasn’t sure I could do what they asked, so they’ve given me time to try before committing. I do have a heart to help others facing loss. I love inductive bible study. But I am not sure I can write what they folks at the publisher are looking for.
So, to those of you who missed a challenge or two, and to those who are behind, I say, “Join the club! The club of bloggers who take on a challenge and then find they can’t finish it all! But I hope you had fun with the ones you did complete. And I hope you stay with us until the end.”
I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts and finding new blogs to follows. Thank you for joining the June 1-30 challenge. Have a great end of June and terrific July!
