The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – April 1, 2019

Hey there, and welcome to The Escapist Coloring Club prompt! If you’d like to join the club, all you have to do is post pictures of your own colouring, your kids’ colouring, or that of anyone you know and have permission to share. This is a month-long prompt, which means you have all of April to link back here.

I really enjoyed colouring my March calendar page. So disappointed I didn’t get to finish it.

Here’s the before.

And here are bits of the after.

And here’s the entire thing.

I’ve always loved dragons. I even have a tattoo of one! I think that’s what made this project so much fun.

I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful projects throughout the coming month!

Please find the “rules” below.

1. This prompt is designed for relaxation. As such, I encourage you to take your time to link your own post here, BUT, when you comment, please click the “Notify me of new comments via email” button. That way you’ll receive a notification when someone else links their project and you won’t miss anything. As with all the prompts, the more you visit others, the more your community of like-minded people grows.

2. Ping back! It’s important so that I and other people can come and read your post. To execute a pingback, just copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into the body of your post. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

3. There will be a prompt on the first of every month. I will try to post the prompt here on my blog at 9:30am -5 GMT. The prompt will simply be photos of my own colouring project. If you would like to host this prompt on your blog on another week during the month, either once, occasionally, or on a regular basis, please e-mail me at hilllindagmaru at gmail dot com and we’ll get you set up. All I ask is that you have an active blog and that you regularly reply to comments and visit other blogs.

4. Feel free to use The Escapist Coloring Club badge in your post.

5. Have fun!


Ah, the Angst

The angst of still not knowing what to do this month!

And it’s already this month!!

I was reading what looked like a great article on procrastination yesterday.

Looked like it, I say, because I didn’t finish reading it. I shit you not, I set it aside to finish later.

So here I am with my illegal “A” post that is in no way associated with the A to Z Challenge. Why don’t I just link to the challenge and get it over with? Let me tell you.

Got a cup of coffee? I don’t, hang on.

Okay, got my coffee. Aaaand, there’s a dog hair in it. Alex must have dropped the tea towel before he wiped my cup. Oh well. Pick it out and keep going. I’m sure it won’t be the first time I’ve eaten a dog hair if there are any more in there. Now, where was I?

Oh yeah, why I don’t link to the original AWESOME A to Z Challenge? Which is celebrating its 10th year this year, I might add.

Anyway, the reason I’m not joining officially is because of the spirit of the whole thing. The A to Z Challenge is all about finding your community of bloggers. It’s about visiting each other. And honestly? I just don’t have time to guarantee I’ll visit every new blogger who visits me. Some? Yes. All? No.

And, I’m not sure I’ll manage to write more than this one post anyway.

But you should definitely do it! Look for the link. Don’t be sneaky like me and do it on the side.

So my next question is, what do I do for the rest of the month?

How about giving my improv muscles a workout?

For tomorrow, I’ll use the first three suggestions for “B” words in the comments on this post. ONE per person. Just please, keep it clean. Ta.

And here are the links I promised you.

The A to Z Challenge sign-up.

And the procrastination article.

Now I’m off to cough up a hairball.

Oh! And I haven’t forgotten the Escapist Coloring Club post for April 1st. I’ll get at that after I’ve finished some other stuff …
