Have you seen a “choose your own adventure” book? My son Harry enjoyed them a few years ago. You get to make decisions about what you would do at certain points in the story. “If you want to chase the savage dinosaur into the jungle, turn to page 72. If you want to go home for a nice cup of tea and go to bed, turn to page 45.”
This is a list of blogging challenges- you can “choose your own adventure” by challenging yourself with new story-telling skills and ideas.
These start easy and get harder.
