Last Days-#Name Your Number Writing Challenge

Today Starts the Last 2 Days of the Name Your Number Writing Challenge.  

It’s NOT too late to join in!  Just Name Your Number (for the remainder of the month)! See below for details. 

YOU name the Number of Posts!  

My number is 22.  Why?  There are 22 workdays in January.  I’m taking the weekends off to catch my breath, or catch up!  I am going to write a post each of those workdays, for a total of 22 posts.  (I will sometimes use the weekends to get a post or two ahead so that I’m not under the gun every day) 

22 is my number.  What’s yours?   

**Just about everyone that has joined this challenge has had trouble with pingbacks.  They simply do not work all of the time.  To be sure that your post reaches me, please leave a link to your post in the comments below. 

If you would like to join me in this challenge, here are the “rules”.  

  • REBLOG this post on your blog.
  • Your post can be in any form you wish. Essay, photo, short story (500 words max, please) poetry, etc.  
  • Please keep the content of your post fairly family friendly.  G or PG rated, please.
  • Your post can be on any subject you wish. 
  • Name your Number!  Challenge yourself!  What number of posts do you aspire to? 
  • Please create a pingback from your post to this one and use the tag “Name Your Number Writing Challenge” so I can find you.  If you do not know how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial HERE.  OR you can leave a link to your post in the comments below in any of my posts.  I moderate the comments on my blog, so you may not see your comment right away.   
  • One real “rule” here.  No copies of your past posts or reblogs of others’ posts.  This challenge is to get your writing juices flowing.  So new work only! 
  • *Due to the time differences, etc. some posts may overflow into the weekend or the following day. I’m quite flexible on the times, etc. 

I will do a Roundup of the remaining posts for this month on Thursday February 2nd.   

So are you ready to challenge yourself?  Please join me!!

Taking On the World


 
I can't unlove
the most vital
role in my life

This life 
would have been
lost
without you 

Letting you go 
left me 
spiritless

When I dream 
I still see
you and I

taking on this 
world
together

In my next life 
I pray we find 
each other

Brokenness


pink begins 
to tint the sky 

beginning 
another day 

to question 
the choices 

that brought her 
to this time

this place 

coffee 
and cigarettes 

vices  
of little solace 
 
few
possessions

include her
brokenness

Welcome the Light

Darkness  
encompasses the earth

and shrouds 
my consciousness

My outlook dismal 
in this land 

of eternal 
darkness

The darkness 
lifts  

The daylight  
returns
  
I watch the sunrise 
and welcome the warmth  

I welcome
the light
