ThomasSometimes, I call him Thomas. encourages me to write every day. How so, you say? Well, I interviewed Tom to find out…
KOURTNIE: How can you help me write, Tom?
TOM: Uhh. Well. When I feel like I need help grooming, I do this Daily Lick ChallengeDon’t ask. with Gregster, where we try to clean each other one minute longer than we cleaned yesterday.
KOURTNIE: So I just increase how long I write, every day?
TOM: Yeah… Umm…Tom is shy. He stumbled on his words a lot, like his Dad. Have you seen how you write? You need an entire house to run nude through, and while sure, sometimes, you take an hour for a 1000 words, other times, that’s an eight-hour day. I don’t think a hour-based challenge is a good idea.
TOM: Do you know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?
KOURTNIE: I suck on suckers. I don’t lick them.
TOM: Oh… How about, every day, you have to write 150 more words than the previous day? Since 100-150 words is a meaty paragraph, or a good sentence-by-sentence scene, it’s a nice “adding” length. And start at 1000 words, because meow and stuff.
KOURTNIE: …Huh. Would it look like this, then?
TOM: You got it.
KOURTNIE: What happens if I go beyond the requirement for the day?
TOM: Quantum Points.
KOURTNIE: What are those?
Phase one of this challenge starts March 1, 2018 and ends May 31, 2018. After three months of monthly rotations, write a reflection with addendum.
