The “Your Turn Challenge” is a 7-day blogging challenge inspired by the Your Turn book by Seth Godin.

Today’s writing prompt is: Why are you doing the Your Turn Challenge?

Because it is there.

Because Winnie asked me do it, and who can say no to a Winnie?

Because if I spend an hour each day on my blog post, I’ll only be 9,993 hours away from being a blogging master.

Because, to paraphrase a writer or three, “writing is easy”*

Because taking on this challenge gives me a great excuse for avoiding domestic chores like washing the dishes and folding the laundry. I know my wife appreciates that. In fact, she’s giving me the “#1” sign right now. (Wrong finger, honey.)

Because every one of my blog posts will be a pile of ship.


*I left out the part of the quote that talks about opening up a vein and bleeding onto the page. Because that sounds icky.
