Aside from starting Just Jot It January 2018 in a couple of weeks, I’m thinking about creating a new prompt. Yes, I know what you’re thinking–but, Linda, you can barely keep up with the ones you have! But this one’s a bit different.
The new prompt will be simple: a picture with a small explanation. I’m going to call it the The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt, and I’ll only host it on the first Monday of every month. My hope is to find volunteers to host it on their own blog every other Monday of the month.
The Escapist Coloring Club will prompt people to take pictures of the things they are coloring and share them. Whether it’s your own adult coloring project or something that your kids have done that you’re particularly proud of, it will be a chance both to showcase your work and to connect with other bloggers who share your passion for creating beautiful works of art.
So why am I looking to add to my workload? I’m not, really. In fact, I’m attempting to do the exact opposite. I need to escape from all the work I do on a daily basis, and this prompt will, I hope, encourage me to take time for myself. Even if I don’t finish what I’ve started, I will take a picture of my current project and share it, as I have a few times with my coloring calendar over the past year.
So, what do you say? Will you participate? And even better, do you think you’d like to host? I do believe we can create a lovely, nurturing community out of this: adults and parents of all descriptions.
If you’re interested in hosting, I can teach you everything you need to know about the process, and I will reblog every prompt post to help get as much exposure for you, your artwork, and your blog as is possible. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get the ball rolling in the coming weeks. Let me know if you’re in it just to try it out, or if you’d like to host on a monthly basis.
I look forward to hearing from you!
