Setting Challenges

I participate in a lot of challenges as well as setting my own.

At the moment, my mind is working on next week’s Fibbing Friday questions which are a lot of fun to set as well as answer. I try to give variety in my topics, and sometimes there is simply no theme at all!
Most questions come off the cuff, though there are a few instances where I looked things up on the internet in order to keep to a theme or perhaps invite some interesting thought processes. Some of the answers have me laughing out loud.

I schedule the forthcoming week’s Three Things Challenge and keep a sheet of the words used. When I first took over from Paula of Light Motifs II, I tried to keep everything in strict alphabetical order so as not to duplicate any words. To be honest, that made things a little complicated and time consuming, so although I still keep a sheet, it’s in month order now. I know there are several duplications in it, but I do try not to.
It still amazes me the differences in interpretation and some of my readers have incorporated the words offered in continuous story posts on their blog. I am so pleased to be a part of their originality.

For myself, I add an addition post at the end of each week using all 21 words of the past seven days.  This was originally suggested by Melanie of sparksfromacombustiblemind, and although not a challenge as such apart for myself, anyone can join in.

There are a lot of bloggers out there who provide various challenges and my own are not a patch on the depth and homework they apply to theirs.
At the end of the day though, my thanks to everyone who sets daily or weekly challenges of whatever genre. I look forward to many and have fun in my response.
Also thank you to my readers who continue to take part in mine. It really is appreciated.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Thanks for all your hard work setting them Di. I try to join in when I can. What a great idea to put each day’s words into a continuous story. I once did that with Fandango’s Word Challenge but didn’t know if that was acceptable, so, seeing as that is okay I might try it with your words too. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

    I was wondering how you manage to think three different words daily! It’s remarkable achievement Di.

  3. Well your challenges are just so darned FUN! 🙂 I only do one and co-host a second. I find that is plenty, the time involved is a bit much at times, but it’s all good. If the prompt is a good one, then it’s a pleasure to participate! Thanks for all you do! 😀
