30 Days of Shorts Summer Blog Challenge

It seems there are all  kinds of blog challenges going around and I always seem to miss out on them because, by the time I see them, they're over or nearly so. So, I've decided to create my own challenge. I love doing short stories on my blog and this is a good opportunity. It will also keep me writing and I may get some good ideas. I'd love it if you'd join me but if you prefer, just read along. 

Here are the rules for the July, 2015 - 30 Days of Shorts Summer Blog Challenge 

Beginning July 1, 2015:

  1. Introduce the 30 Days of Shorts Summer Blog Challenge on your blog and place a link back to this post.
  2. Write a short story post on your blog every day for 30 days. This doesn't have to be more than 500 words unless you want it longer.
  3. Come back to my blog and share the link to your post in the comments on my blog. 
  4. At the end of the 30 days, if you've completed the challenge, I'll give you a Winner's button for your blog. (I'll post it on this blog on the 31st.)
July is 31 days so if you miss a day, you haven't totally lost the challenge!


  1. Great idea Cindy to start your own challenge. I wonder if Wendy has seen this as she likes to write although I'm not sure that she does stories.

    Sadly it isn't my thing so I won't be a participant but I hope you get others joining you. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Hi Cynthia, here is the link to my blog where my Shorts will be posted:

    the first one is up

  3. Short Story #2 is now up, it is long, the story just had to write itself out. didn't edit it much so sorry about that.

    Newcomers to Guilderland means changes to the lives of settlement members, a big day for Toanunck, he is offered an opportunity that will determine his future with his people and with the Europeans that now control the ancient lands.
