Category Archives: 12 Month Challenge

After the productive 2015 and a successful challenge,  GreatGothNinja and I had a “Challenge Committee” meeting in November.  The outcome was :

  1. Quarterly Non LOLS Papers
  2. Art Project
  3. 100Days starting April 1st 2016 to July 9th 2016


Quarterly Non LOLS Papers:

The write and esoteric paper challenge was a very successful event from last year. I completed 4 paper in that year. All the subject came from Dr Lomas  and his brethren of the Lodge of Living Stones  This has had a side effect that we can now come up with our on topics for Papers to  research and write. Therefore we have decided that we should produce 4 papers over the course of the 12 months that are independent of the ones set by LOLS.


Art Project :

This is similar to the shared story idea of 2015, yet this time the work is not shared  and not a story. In fact you could say the two events are not even similar!  The Art Project is a piece of art that can be done over the course of the year, that is not a poem, story or script.  But an Art thing , painting, drawing, graphic image, collage, sculpture etc. or &c.

As it is art and rules cannot be applied to it, then only a base framework it can be done  on anything  and there must be some post throughout the year on its progress.   Perhaps 1 a quarter or  once a month.

This is the challenge I am not looking forward to as I am no good at the art things  I was banned from picking colours at Net-Work Internet limited for my Purple, Orange and Neon Green website  I built.


100 Days:

Back once again for the creative behaviour, the annual challenge has returning.  Last year I managed was able to be creative for the full 100days this is a fantastic achievement . But there were 19 late posts, this year we will have less than 11.

He left his house in a rush

For the time had come 

To make a stand and to push

So on Thursday, the old one from the Wrexham valley released his new book a poem one. This has been a long rumored to be almost complete think it is been in that stage for 4 years perhaps less. I do the old man a disjustice or injustice as the spellcheck is not that amazing.
