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.
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 :-

Well the 100 Day Challenge is 1/4 of the way through and for my 25th bit of creativity I wrote a letter to you my dear constant reader.
Original post can be found here -=> 2012: Day: 25 – Dear Reader
Greetings and Salutations
I decided to write you a letter, and this is it. Yes this —-=> here <=—-
So… The letter… How shall I begin?…
Let me count the ways I could begin.
- Dear You
- Oi Mush
- Greetings and salutations
- Time for tubby bye bye??
But all these ways are just academic since I started with Greetings and Salutations at the top of the sheet of paper… So. Big Fuck Off Opening… Dum-De-Dum… Right, The letter…
Nope. It’s Gone, I can’t think of anything to write. My mind is blank, its as empty as a big empty container that’s totally empty. In the words of the poet, “I’m hanging from a cobweb in my mind, and I’m staring at a long way down.” I know, I’ll sing to myself and see if that help.

OK. Back. Did you miss me? I missed me, but I’ve reloaded now and I don’t plan to miss me with my next shot. Want to come to my funeral? You welcome to come, but you have to dress as a small furry rodent.
Woo. Page two. I really should start the letter now, there is only so much gibbering that I can put down before you’ll decide to kill me… and I know you. You will kill me, cos. you hate me, really hate me, killed my babies and everything. So, without further ado I’ll start the letter…
But before I do. I just got to share the lyrics that were just sung “One minute you’re a looker who looked, and the next you’re a hooker who’s hooked” they don’t make songs like that any more… Probably for a reason!!!
I was going to do this letter carrying on from the last set of comments, but how do you reply to an insane person… you are mad… your comments prove it… just total inane ramblings, hum? I can just do total insane ramblings.Yes! That’s it, this letter will contain not one piece of sense. So, all I need now is a topic matter, and I know just the way to get it.
(Pause In Letter As The Good Catholic Boy Author Goes To SMS Someone for a Topic)
Back again and I now have a topic to talk about, yes we will discus the merits of “Glow In The Dark Sunglasses” Now personally I think that’s a brilliant idea. We all know how great sunglasses are from protecting the eyes from the harmful effects of sunlight. But a pair of sunglasses that protected the eyes from the harmful affects of glow in the dark stuff (Glow Sticks for example) well that would be a very handy thing for people to have, would make the world a much better place. Forget Work! I’m going to make my fortune with “glow in the dark sunglasses”!!!
Well it was a good idea, but I really was hoping you’d give me a topic that I could ramble on about for ages, but NO! You had to give me glow in the dark sunglasses! What am I supposed to do with an idea like that? I have no idea…
I really hope you can actually read this writing (please pretend I’m writing this to you with a real pen and everything. I feel it makes it more personal) cos. I’m not sure I can. Its like all scribbled up. Its spider scrawl, like a spider stepped into a tiny puddle of ink and walked all over a piece of paper leaving spider scribbles behind…
So. Big fuck off ending… how do we end, how do we start? That’s a bit deep and meaningful for this letter and especially this time of night so I’ll answer those and other questions like :-
- Who was that masked man?
- Is the Demonpengu an alien lifeform?
- Is the YoYoMan a lifeform?
- What is that strange growth there?
- Will I ever make sense?
Yes all these and other questions will be answered on the next instalment of “There’s nothing in wayne’s head”. Take care. You all drive safe, good night, and remember, if you’re in a different zip code it didn’t happen…
Yours in need of a new mind
