OK. So that was a workout. 30 days of posts for the Health Activist Writers Month Challenge completed. My normal output runs about 1 every 4 days. Props to Wegohealth for taking us through an interesting obstacle course. Storytelling, verse, and different kinds of visuals stretched us into new modes.
My favorites for the month were the ekphasis, haiku, and six sentence story prompts. And even what seemed a trite prompt, like “describe a first time” resulted in a creation I was pleased with. And there were surprises; an incidental use in the challenges/victories post of an image of the drinkingbird toy from many years back prompted more than 40 repins overnight on my Pinterest board. The post it’s linked to is still enjoying about a third more page views than might be expected. Just for grins, I think I’ll throw a slinky in here and see what happens :)

As a bit of a recluse, normally broadcasting solo from this outlaw radio station of a blog, it’s been healthy for me to be a little more social. I felt like a mountain man coming down to the spring gathering. It’s been nice to meet a few new friends. It’s been particularly hopeful to see the number of positive messages supported by participants. Disease communities are often such a pity party. Nice job Wegohealth for attracting more optimists!
