This far into the new year everyone should have all the partying out of their system and be able to think once again.
Well, Iâ€™ll be kind to you and not ask you to think too much. I want you to write about the month of January and, in the challenge statement, I gave you a link to a site that has all kinds of neat things dealing with this month. (Oh, in their list of things for the seventh of January, they missed one very important thing that happened in 1947.)
This Weekâ€™s Challenge:
Use prose or poetry to write something (fiction, nonfiction, or essay) about the month of January. Go to Â The History Place, pick one of the entries, and write about it.
No way am I going to give you an idea because The History Place is packed with ideas -- you only have to pick one.
Oh, if you can figure out why I said the seventh was a pretty important day and write something explaining that -- extra points!
Watch Out For:
Nothing except that your submission must talk about the month of January.
We had some great submissions and I was pleased to see that my ideas from last week actually worked for you.
