Well the year that was 2014 is now officially over, so I guess it is time to review my years challenge. You may recall from HERE that at the start of the year we decided on :-
“This year we are doing “Challenge Purists” Which is loosely based off the Trivial Pursuits Game. We have appointed different categories to the Tradition colours, and just like in the game you have to complete some goal in that category to win the piece of pie.”
So we have started a new year (OK, technically we started the New Year 28 days ago, but who is counting?) Now a New year traditionally means “New Years Resolutions” But since I am crap at sticking to them I try and do something different instead, some thing I am more likely to stick too.
This year are much discussion with PlanetPete, and even more working out and finalising of details. You could say 28 days worth of finalising which means I am not late posting this at all, but was FINALISING!!!!
Where was i? Oh yes thats right. This year we are doing “Challenge Purists” Which is loosely based off the Trivial Pursuits Game. We have appointed different categories to the Tradition colours, and just like in the game you have to complete some goal in that category to win the piece of pie.
Yes People, its combining New Years Resolutions with challenges & competitiveness & Gaming. How can it not work??
The 2014 Categories are :-
Dear Constant Reader,
As you know. I have a tendency to challenge myself in a variety of ways, in a constant attempt to stave off boredom, laziness, and the soul destroying lack of enthusiasm that often plagues me. As such I often have several Challenges running at any one time Often With other people taking part, or global challenges like NaNoWriMo.
So Dear CR, I figured I really should do an update post since we are past the midway point of the year. (more…)
Wow. We are not even a week into the challenge and we have grown to four Participants.
the YoYoMan himself has joined in late. We let him because he has been creatively working on the theme of a new website.
So a quick update of links :-
@GreatGothNinja AKA Me, Myself & I = http://100days.three-ninjas.co.uk/
@DemonPengu AKA DemonPenguin = http://100days.demonpenguin.co.uk/
@Maguire_Pete AKA PlanetPete = http://www.chimontendo.org/ct/
@ AKA YoYoMan = http://www.100days.girue.co.uk
Once again @DemonPengu and I have decided to fight the meh of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm in the Office with our own private 100 day challenge It’s not The 100 day challenge (Because we missed that again). This year we have a new participant @MaguirePete joining us in an attempt to restart the creative juices flowing. So a day was picked “The 1st of July” as Day 1: (Well this way it does not clash with NaNoWriMo or the run up to Christmas) and for the next 100 days we will be doing a creative thing a day.
As with The challenge the creative thing can be, drawings, art, poetry, writing, anything as long as its creative (and one piece a day)
So everyone wish me luck, and words of encouragement welcome, for I can not let the the others Win!
Note: It also helps that we are all “slightly” competitive over these things, and no one will want to be the first to fail, which will help encourage us to complete the challenge.
To save this blog getting spammed I have created a dedicated site for the challenge at http://100days.three-ninjas.co.uk. I will (probably for the first few weeks then forget) post weekly updates on here, but the daily progress will be on the dedicated site.
@DemonPengu’s Day 2011 awesome kickoff.
Well I’m now three weeks into this challenge, And I swear the finish line is moving further away. On a positive side I have ideas for two stories/worlds that I am going to use this challenge to flesh out a bit. There’s a Zombie story, and a Fantasy that I see being running themes over the next eleven weeks.
So a Quick summery.
