The 31 Days Writing Challenge -- Day 1: Table of Contents of Awesomeness!

My friend Dana told me about this wonderful writing challenge called 31 Days.  I was immediately intrigued, as I love to write, and I really have been wanting to stretch myself and move away from some of the topics I've been writing on for a long time.

The 31 Days Challenge gave writers a number of topics to choose from, and I ultimately chose "Too Awesome to Categorize".  I wanted the chance to write not just about my travels or adventures, but Zack and vintage shopping and who-knows-what-cool-thing that will happen in October?

So every day in October, I will be writing a blog post that has an element of awesomeness. Some may be short, with photos and captions only. Some may be long, with a story that will make you laugh or snicker. There will be stories about planes, trains, and automobiles (really). There will be stories I've made up, and stories that happened long ago.

This page will act as a Table of Contents, so you can save this link to your desktop and click it every day, or visit my Facebook page where the blog posts will automatically appear like magic. Or you can visit every day and BAM! New topic right in front of you -- all about awesomeness.

You can also click this icon you'll see on the right side bar 
and it will bring you right back to this page.

As I'm going to really wing it, don't expect a full table of contents listed here on October 1st! I'm going to let the muse flow, and see where it takes me.  At the end of October, though, the entire Table of Contents will be here for you to visit and re-read as you wish.

Thank you so very much for visiting, and happy reading!
