October 30-Day Challenge

Over at the Impossible League, we’re starting 30-Day Challenges, and the first one begins tomorrow! The idea is to tackle some of your impossible challenges in the 30 days of the month you’re in, and check in on your progress weekly. You still have time to get in on this if you want! Head on over to the Impossible League. This month (October), we’re tackling an endurance challenge, an adventure challenge, and a giving back challenge. I’ll be updating you on my progress each Monday.

Here are mine, and wow, I really had to think hard and look at the calendar for this one. October is BUSY!


Find at least 30 minutes a day to work on either my current book or plot the book I’ll be writing in November for NaNoWriMo. This is going to mean my lunch break this month on most days, since I’m in a musical at the end of the month and it’s crunch time on evening rehearsals.


Sing a tiny solo. Like, for real, in a musical production, in front of people. I’m in a musical revue of some Gilbert & Sullivan operettas and I have a teensie little two-measure solo in one of the Iolanthe pieces (I’m a fairy) and it will be my first solo since I sang in an a cappella group in college. Nervous! But excited. I get two chances to get it right because there are two shows. Hoping I’ll go 2 for 2. 😉 (If you live near Raleigh and want to come see it, please do!)


I’m currently working on a big personal challenge to give away 10% of my income, so I want to be caught up for the year by the end of October, meaning, I want to have given away 10% of what I’ve made through the end of October. (No, you don’t get an actual number besides the percent– sorry. 😉 ) Here’s my blog post on that.

So, are you in? What are you challenging yourself with this month?
