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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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! 😀
