Even though I am not the “official” host of Monthly Wine Writing Challenge 8 (#MWWC8), I like to think of myself as the Challenge’s “Goodwill Ambassador.” Thus, consider this a “friendly” reminder to get your butt in gear and get writing! Perhaps this month’s theme “Luck” does not particularly “speak” to you and you are finding it difficult to come up with a post. Maybe you have been incredibly busy hosting your Uncle Cletus who showed up on your doorstep three weeks ago and has been drinking your cellar dry ever since. Then again, you could just be a lazy son-of-a -female-dog and were planning on writing it this weekend (like me).
Regardless of your reason(s), as far as I can tell, there have only been
six seven ten twelve thirteen entries thus far (please let me know if that is not the case and I will be sure to include you here):
As good as these two are, two total posts is a far cry from what you have produced in the previous challenges. I know we are all busy, but it is after all called a “Challenge!” It is not called a “Walk in the Park”, a “Breeze”, or a “Lay-up” it is a “Challenge” and the idea is to take you a bit out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself as a writer. As a good friend once told me: “When you are a writer, the most important thing you can do is write–even if you are not inspired, even if it is the last thing you want to do. You must force yourself to write and the ideas will come.”
So get out there and write!
For those unfamiliar with “the rules” of the challenge, those can be found on this month’s official host, The Sweet Sommelier. Remember, the deadline for submission is this Sunday (March 22nd)!
