Microblogvember was inspired by the Blogvember challenge, which uses prompts to encourage folks to post every day in the month of November. Because this is Micro.blog, we micro’d it: instead of a long blog post, you write something short that uses a daily prompt.

The plan is the same as Microblogvember 2019:

1) Every day I will go to a random word generator to get the latest prompt and post it.

2) Participants write a micropost, 280 characters or fewer, that includes the prompt word.

We want this to be as simple as possible, so you have fun while flexing your writing muscles and establishing a daily writing habit. We know that a lot is going on in November 2020. A commitment to writing something small every day might help you deal with everything else competing for your attention. And, as a community, we can support, encourage, amuse, and inspire each other during these challenging times.

There’s a Microblogvember pin that you will earn if you complete the challenge. To allow for time zone differences, we’ll count posts made between October 31 and November 2, U.S Central time.

There’s also a Daily Blogger pin, for posting 30 days in a row. If you’ve had your eye on earning that one, here’s a good way to do it.

If you want to use a hashtag, it’s #mbnov. Email me if you have questions at jean@micro.blog. Or just reply. 🙂🖊🗓
