Writing Challenges

Day 1

Yes, writing challenges on many fronts – thinking, putting thoughts together in an organized manner, weaving into words so that the narration is what’s desired and it also includes thinking of what to write. But that’s what not I am talking about today.

I want to tell you that the biggest month of the year is here. November brings a lot of writing challenges and bloggers from all over the world participate in many of them. Like last year, I am also pushing myself to write regularly all 30 days of November. So as we go along, a lot of regular features on this blog will be blended to become the post for the day.

I want to write better and hence I believe this challenge will give me an opportunity to get regular and express better. There is always something to learn and when I go around blog hopping, there will be a lot to learn from everyone. There will be no particular theme and I will try to keep my posts short and crisp. As usual there will be happiness, food for thought and some remaining stories from my Hong Kong visit. November is also my birthday month and I am sad that VT won’t be around this time but that’s how life is. It’s after all the love and thought that matters. Isn’t it?

This year has been different in a lot of ways and interestingly, this challenge is my fourth commitment for the year. Want to know about the others?

So, as I undertake yet another one, I need your support. Do stop by when ever you get time, share your thoughts, tell me how you think I am doing and of course if there is something that you would like to read – let me know!

Have a lovely November and don’t forget be grateful! See you around!


Today is Day 1 of NaBloPoMo and NoMo. This post has also been tagged Sunday Punch #47 for the message that the quote above conveys!

    Love that quote, Parul. I always enjoy your uplifting and positive posts. Because of you I made a card for the children of Syria so you do touch others with your words in many ways.
    I am signed up for NoMo as well as I need to get back into the writing habit again. I tried to write something yesterday and nothing seemed to work so I admitted failure but at least I made a blog post out of it.

      Cathy – humbled by your comment. Thank you tons for saying that. My goal to write is to touch lives and if you say that – I feel on top of the world 🙂
      Writing is a process. So, just keep on doing as you always do and things will fall in place 🙂

    I know lots of people are writing-challenged. But you are not. So a blog post a day shouldn’t be too tough 🙂

  9. Good luck with the writing challenges in November! I love the quote you’ve put up there. It’s so true! 😀

    I wish I could do NaBloPoMo and NoMo as well but I know it’d be stupid to try and do that in addition to NaNoWriMo. Maybe next year. 🙂 Will definitely visit to keep encouraging you.

    Third challenge for the year? What about AtoZ? I agree, there is nothing more effective than blog hopping to help the writing muscles. 🙂 All the best dear. I am also trying to write daily throughout November. 🙂

  11. I have been currently out of action from my blog since a long time. Have skipped blog hopping coz of exams and project submissions. I think this will give me a chance to catch up on blog reading!
    Be assured, Parul, I’ll stay here @Happiness And Food and read all your blog posts 🙂

    Cross my fingers!

    Good luck with the writing challenge. I am sure you will shine through this, just like you did in lovely sarees. And of course, happiness is always with you. Your smile is a testament to that. So now writing everyday too will be cake-walk.

    […] Dear reader, get ready for another month of daily posts from me. I’m taking part in BlogHer’s #NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) which is on every month, but is always so much bigger in November. I’m also participating  in Yeah Write’s November Challenge 2015 (thanks for the heads up on this Parul of Happiness and Food). […]
