Contemplation, Creativity, Community: Write 31 Days Challenge Intro

Welcome to the opening day of the Write 31 Days Challenge for 2018 here at Tuning Hearts! I decided at the last minute to try and participate again this year. I hope that since I'm not using social media this month, I will be able to write a majority of the days this time around.

Just as I did last year, I will be following the writing prompts from 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes, as well as following the usual 5-minute free write rules for those posts.

Since we are encouraged to choose a theme to guide our writing during the challenge, I settled on three words that sum up the direction my thoughts have turned of late:


These ideas keep coming up in my daily life as I think on what it means for me to:

  1. lead a more contemplative life in a fast-paced world
  2. hone and use my creativity as a tool to glorify God
  3. build real, live community in a culture that is increasingly disconnected

I hope you will enjoy thinking through these ideas with me as I explore them from the various angles of the prompts given me this month.

  1. I love your theme! This is my first time through the 31 Day Challenge and I didn’t really choose a theme, but maybe one will emerge. Looking forward to reading your posts throughout this challenge. Visiting you from the #39 at the link up. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Neta! I didn’t have a theme last year, either. I am hoping this year to really participate on most of the days, if not all. So I thought having a driving theme would help me keep going!
