And Now For Something Slightly Different

83 Comments

Due to the overwhelming response I’ve received for Just Jot It January 2016 participation, I’ve decided to go ahead and run it. Hard to believe it’ll be starting in just a few days, isn’t it? Anyhow, I’m working out ways to make it a little easier this year for everyone to connect. This is what I’ve come up with so far:

  1. I’ll schedule every one of my posts for early in the morning so you have the option of linking to a daily post instead of the Rules Post at the start of the month. This will make the ping backs easier to find. However, if you want to schedule your posts ahead of time, you can still link to the Rules Post – when I see it, I’ll link to the daily post for you. I hope to make this new addition to the rules less confusing when the time comes, so if you don’t understand what you just read, don’t worry about it. 😛
  2. Because I’m going to be on more of a deadline (see #1), I’m going to ask for prompts from you. Yes, you. The first 22 comments on this post that include a single word will be my prompts for the 22 days in January that I won’t be writing my own prompts (aka One-Liner Wednesday and Stream of Consciousness Saturday).  If you write more than one word in your comment, for example, “My word is antidisestablishmentarianism,” I’ll ignore it. Same thing if you try to slip in two, even in two different comments. Having said that, if I get the same word twice I’ll only accept the first person who got to it. If you’re the second, feel free to try again. And please, remember this is a relatively G-rated blog, so nothing too risque. The sixteenth word will be a special one. If you can figure out why, kudos to you.
  3. I’ll link back to the blog of whoever gives me a prompt on the day I use it, so make sure you get your comment in early!
  4. I’ll be sure to post my prompt word in the title of my post each day so if you need a little prompting yourself, you’ll be able to use it too if you want.

That’s all I can think of for now. The full list of rules will go up on January 1st, so get ready!

Now all I have to do is squint, hold my breath, and hit publish on this post. Let the prompts roll in!!

    • It’s great that you’re planning to join in. 😀 The beauty of JusJoJan is anything you write counts, whether it’s on your blog or on a post-it note. It’s totally on the honour system. So in answer to your question, getting kicked out is really out of the question! 😀

      • Was just wondering is there maybe a chance you could make a post with a list of all the 31 prompts on it? I usually write/draw my blog posts a day in advance, so that would be awesome 🙂 no worries if you don’t want to/can’t for some reason

        • Sure – that’s a great idea! There are actually only 22 prompts because two days a week I write prompts on my blog. The Wednesday ones come out the day of (and are not really prompts per se) and the others come out Friday for use on Saturday. But I’ll list the 22 tomorrow when I post the JusJoJan Rules. Thanks for the suggestion, Dean! 😀
