I have a spotty record when it comes to blogging challenges. If I recall correctly, I successfully completed two out of four official NaBloPoMos, one out of two unofficial NaBloPoMos, two out of three Holidailies, and I gave up on the Thirty Day Meme.
But I’ve gone ahead and accepted another unofficial NaBloPoMo challenge. Why? I suppose I’m just plain nuts. The theme of the month, should I wish to embrace it, is art, meaning that art can be discussed, shared, or both. And if I run out of ideas, I have a “backup” plan. (And yes, I do expect you to imagine my making “finger quotes” there. And there.)
I’ve also decided to participate in the Readers Imbibing Peril (RIP) reading challenge, which runs from September 1 to October 31. To participate, simply read and review at least one “scary” novel, short story, or film. I would have finished at least one book during this time anyway, so why not join the fun and make it a “scary” book?
It’s suggested (but not mandatory, by any means) that participants list a few “scary” books they may be thinking of reading. I’ll have to check my shelves. There are a great many there that I’ve collected and are yet to be read…
