Reading Challenge 2019

Remember that part where I said I wouldn’t be posting again until 2019?

… I lied. This awesome opportunity popped up and I have to share it with you guys!

Windy Writes

So, last year at the end of 2017 I gave myself a reading challenge for 2018, which I actually managed to complete, believe it or not! So, the end of this year, as I was scrounging around for a new challenge to do for 2019, I thought, why don’t I create a challenge as well as compete in one for myself?

With the help of my friend and writing buddy Rebekah DeVall, I’ve created two reading challenges for this year! The first one, called the “Novel Novice” Reading challenge, is just a basic, fun, 25-challenge list to complete for 2019. If you complete it by the end of the year your name (should you wish) will go on the recently-created “Novel Novice Winners” wall on the left side of my blog (with a link to your blog if you have one) and bragging rights for all time!

Flash Flood Christmas Day 22 – Silver Bells

History: "Silver Bells" started out as "Tinkle Bells." Said Ray Evans, "We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay went home and his first wife said, 'Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?'" The word is slang for urination.[4] This song's inspiration has conflicting reports. Several periodicals and interviews cite the writer … Continue reading Flash Flood Christmas Day 22 – Silver Bells
