I usually do not host the posts of others because it is just so hard to choose between the many talented writers on WordPress that I follow. Why would I host one blogger and not another?
But then Lorelle of TRITE EPIPHANIES wrote an essay about her backpack. It reminded me that everything has a story and suddenly the notion of hosting a MY STUFF writing challenge presented itself.
Here is how her post begins:
My backpack is huge and purple and has seen 3 continents. Made for hiking and camping, it’s also perfectly suited for travel. It fits within millimeters of what’s allowed as a carry-on, and the straps fit me so well, it takes several hours of wearing it before I feel burdened.
Before doing much travel, at all, ever, I decided to move to Malaysia. There, I soon realized that I needed a good backpack if I wanted to cheaply take advantage of the amazing weekend trips available to me.
A friend of mine took me into one of the 50+ malls that dot the Kuala Lumpur city-scape with towers, domes, and squares; some extending several stories underground, reaching below the street, and continuing above ground as another tower.
Malaysia takes its malls seriously…
Read the whole thing. My Backpack
So this is my challenge: Look around you. Find something of yours that is worth writing about and fashion an essay around it.
Tag your story with MY STUFF and after you publish it and link it back here, I will reblog it (unless there are too many, God forbid)
Each day, I will feature a new challenge post.
