2015 October Platform Challenge: Day 30 – Step Away for Your Writing

This came into my inbox: 2015 October Platform Challenge (link). I almost deleted it. Almost. Then the voice on my left shoulder (we’ll call him Muninn) cawed, “You have been wanting to work on this skill as long as I can remember.” Not to be outdone, the voice on my right shoulder, (let’s just say he’s named Huginn) cackled, “I really think you should do this.”

So sleeves up, I am committed to this month of daily challenges! Here goes…

2015 October Platform Challenge: Day 30 – Step Away for Your Writing

*****

The instructions for today are: “Step Away for Your Writing”

Huginn eyes the instructions critically, “It’s too easy. There’s a catch.”

Muninn nods dramatically and says in his theater voice,

“Beware the challenge-wock, my son!
The dare that bites, the laws that catch!
Beware the command line, and shun
The impossible challenge-hack!”

Huginn shakes his head, “Don’t quit your day job, bro. Leave the creative work to me.”

I snicker a bit. “Okay, look. I know I have a ton of podcast releases to announce today, but I can devote some extra time to writing.”

“Yes,” says Muninn, pointedly ignoring Huginn, “but you’re also trying to get everything ready so you can scribe like a gnomish bard during NaNoWriMo.”

Huginn’s eyes go wide, “You… you…”

“Yes,” Muninn snaps, “I made a reference to the fantasy genre. Happy now?”

“Bah…” Huginn’s brain seems to have short circuited.

“Quick,” Muninn whispers, “Use the quiet time I just bought you to begin penning your next great work!”

I nod and get to it!
