I’m trying something new…


This chap*
has started a new blog, writing forty words a day, for a year, on people who have made an impression upon his life, and mm told me about it as she too is having a go. I love the idea!

It took me half an hour to get down to forty words, but seeing as I wrote one, I figured I might as well create a new blog and join in! Fancy it?

This doesn’t mean I’m giving up here, just that I could do with being a bit more concise and this seems like a fun exercise to help me achieve better writing. And as I said, I love the idea of remembering those who have meant something to me! Just hope I can remember 365 of them…


* (I don't actually know he is a chap, may be a lady, in fact it's such a good idea, it probably is a woman!) Added: err, yes, he's a chap!

I suspect today's post where he refers to himself as little Mr Been there implies that he is indeed a chap.

Sorry. Men get good ideas too, you know. ;)

Oooh, fun idea! I'll definitely be by your new blog!

Add that to all the catch-up reading I have to do...

Sounds like a long trip down memory lane. I have been incorporating a similar idea in my blog, however, it's not everyday that I choose to write about someone, and there is no possible way I can be that concise. I would explode if I could only use 40 words. Hmmmm, it sounds challenging though. Just reading your first entry makes me want to ask questions about the woman, Molly was it?

Yikes. I have too many blogs as it is. Sorry, Jona & Maureen, but I'm already depressed enough by my ability to keep only one blog running continuously.

What a lovely idea. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with 365 if that's your goal.
