30 day blogging challenge

30 day blogging challenge

Day 1 Nov. 17, 2015

Okay, I took up this 30-day blogging challenge because I constantly have to prove things to myself and to others. This will be my 300th post since I started blogging in January of 2013 to promote my memoir Greenwich Meridian on the WordPress platform. The blog’s name is EW Emma’s Writings.


I am halfway through the book about our family immigration saga. I’ve written about everything from last year’s eye ordeal with cataracts to blogging, and to Earth Day.

After years of writing for both print and digital media, I feel like I am running out of ideas.

In August, I took on a client blog Fallasburg Today @fallasburg and I will have another one @ lmason2016, a political campaign.

I did everything according to Learn to Blog guidelines including E-newsletters. I designed my first one on a cell phone on mail chimp.

Now, my husband wants me to go back to work to do whatever. I’ve already done whatever from working for Women’s Department for a Midwest chain Meijer to a bunch of newspapers and magazines.

I’ve had front page stories published and I’ve received several awards. But, what really bothers me is that I haven’t been able to get my fiction published. I’ve written a collection of short stories “Glass Flowers,” a screenplay “Riddleyville Clowns,” a book “Fire on Water” and I am working on the memoir.

I hope this challenge helps me regroup my thoughts and focus again. This is my plan for the challenge:

  • Innovation
  • Getting rid of old thoughts and behavior patterns
  • Focusing on humanity
  • Getting back to the memoir
  • Developing regular writing times
