Her palms were as sweaty as abandoned parchment in a damp crypt and her throat as dry as a neglected printer cartridge. The blogger swallowed and blinked as her fingers hovered over her keyboard. Wondering how she would ever cope with the latest Blogfest challenge, she clenched her teeth and began.
Challenges can be scary because they make you step outside of your comfort zone, which can be uncomfortable or enriching. Putting your work on the line to be seen and critiqued by others is a big step. However, there is no substitute for actually having a go ourselves.
I find enormous benefits from receiving feedback from others to help me mature as a writer and to try out new ideas and genres.
With that in mind I have created a new page on this blogsite dedicated to blogfest challenges.
BUT How do you feel about blogfests?
Do they fill you with dread, indifference or excitement?
I wonder how many blogfests you've entered and who has done the most. So far I've done 5, with 3 more on the horizon.
