Time for a challenge!
A friend of mine likes to write stories, but gets a bit lazy between school work and crocheting amigurumis and reading and…etc. Meanwhile I’m constantly looking for inspiration to create new graphic designs for multiple uses, so I thought it would be a great idea for us to challenge each other once a week to keep our creativity on its toes.
Here is the idea:
Every Monday I will send her one writing challenge she will post on her blog: onceuponabook.wordpress.com.
In return, she will send me a graphic design challenge that I will post to this blog. The posts will always be titled: Monday’s Challenge”, along with the date. Example: “Monday’s Challenge 6/15/09”. The design/story must be posted no later than Saturday of that week by 11:59pm.
If you are a graphic designer or children’s/young adult/ writer or enthusiast and would like to participate, simply access either of these blogs on Mondays (or, better yet, subscribe!) and take on the challenge. Once you are finished with the week’s challenge, post it on your own blog and send me the link so I can post it here.
If you don’t have a blog but want to participate, you can post your design/story as a comment to the Monday blog or send me the story/design via e-mail and I’ll make sure it gets posted in the right place. If you send it to me via e-mail, please be sure to write “Monday’s Challenge (and date)” as a subject and include your name (or nickname/pen name, if you prefer), and location (something general like Orlando, FL…Norwood, MA, etc. If you want to include a link to your website or blog, that would be fine, too!)
If we get a lot of responses this could eventually develop into a contest with prizes, but for now, we’ll do it for practice and pure enjoyment!
That said, please keep your entries PG – PG 13 please!
