I just created a writing challenge for myself.
Since America is celebrating 244 years tomorrow, and since 2020 is an interesting time to be an American, I have decided to write 244 words about my American identities for 20 days.
America Me & Mine
What does America mean to me? What does it mean to me as a woman? A mother? A writer? An educator?
I plan to take the next 20 days to explore those questions and more in 244-word blog posts.
I’m not sure how it will go or who I will be after the challenge ends, but I’m giving it a try. After all, isn’t that what America is – The Great Experiment?
Please feel free to join me on whatever platform you use. You can join the fun for one day, for all 20, or for some quantity in between.
If you want to join me, just comment, “I’m in!” and tag your posts AmericaMeAndMine. Tag me, too, if you can, because I’d love to read what America means to you in all of your identities.
And that’s my bit of creativity for today.
