About a week ago or so, I ran across an interesting blog challenge. Officially, it’s called the October Memoir and Backstory Blog Challenge. That’s a bit of a mouthful, so I shortened it up a bit for my post title. Anyway, you can find out more about it here on Jane Ann McLachlan’s blog and sign up for it, should you so desire, here. I thought it sounded like fun, so I signed right up.
On the off chance that you haven’t clicked through to find out what it’s all about, here’s the gist of it: Write 25 posts in 31 days. Sounds easy enough, right? Ah, but there’s a theme: Each post should be a memory or reflection for each of the first 25 years of life. From the original post:
It can be a personal memoir from your life, a reflection on turning a certain age, a recollection of someone else at that age, a poem or a photo, on the ages 1 to 25.
