I have this propensity to "volunteer" for things I never meant to do. This sometimes ends well. I'm hoping this one does.
When I first started blogging (in June! Oh so long ago!) several of the blogs I read would have these "Monday Missions" posts. I remember in particular a week when everyone wrote a poem. Hmmm... I wondered what this was all about (I was new, and slow on the uptake). Finally, I discovered that they were being motivated by Jennifer. As luck would have it, I found this out on the last day she was hosting the Monday Missions. I posted a comment somewhere along the lines of "can anyone participate? or is it over?" At least that's what I remember commenting. I suppose I could go back and look. Anyhow, a week or so ago Jennifer e-mailed me, about how I had offered to HOST the Monday Missions. Ummmmm...... So I looked into it a bit. They were started over at the garden of nna mmoy as a way to encourage people to write their blog posts in a different style. Looked like fun. And I'm a sucker. So I said "what the heck, sounds like fun" and agreed to try to host these babies for the month of September.
So, in a nutshell, Monday Missions are this: Write a post in the style for the day. Be creative. Make a link back to here, and let me know, and my post will link to all of your Monday Missions posts (I could use some help on suggestions for how to do this... I would love to do a Mr. Linky kind of thing... if it won't cost me anything, because I'm broke! Any help from fellow bloggers who have done this kind of thing greatly appreciated) I'll put up a reminder a day or two beforehand (sort of like Julie does for the Humpday Hmmm... series. )
Your Missions, should you choose to accept them, are:
9/3 Song Rewrite (take a known song/tune and write new lyrics)
9/24 Letter of Rejection
Participate in as many or as few as you'd like. The idea is to have fun and stretch your writing style. Cool? Cool.
