A Hub Challenge, and Twitter


This week I've managed to type with two hands! Haven't written a book or anything, but I've been able to do some basic data entry at work, managed emails and even a few forum posts. And my mind has been on writing, even if my pen hasn't touched paper much more than my left fingers have touched keyboard.

Just as I was trying to talk myself into setting up some goals and priorities to jumpstart my writing, along comes HubPages with a new challenge - 100 Hubs in 30 Days - or for the slightly less ambitious, 30 Hubs in 30 Days. As busy as we have been at work lately, I have no doubt I'd fail the 100 Hub challenge, but 30...well, that's just 1 a day. It's similar to what I tried to do when I started my first MarriageUndone blog post [edited to remove the link, and to admit my focus changed to marriage working instead of surviving divorce.]
As part of the hub challenge, I've also finally signed up for twitter - I'm easy to find since "dineane" is still pretty uncommon in internet land :-) I have lots to learn about twittering and tweets, but it looks pretty easy to use.

Think you can write a short article every day for a month? Then come join me at hubpages and try the 30 day challenge!

Hey Dineane -- thanks for the HubChallenge shout-out and I'm glad to hear that you're writing with two hands again. Just in time, eh?

Can't wait to kick this thing off on Monday and I hope that we all can keep up!
