Think Write Thursday

Here’s the email that went out this week:

Hey Everyone!
We’re starting to feel like this whole Think Write Thursday thing isn’t going so well. Participation isn’t high and it’s been dropping off steadily for the last little while. We don’t want anyone to feel bad or guilty about not playing along – your blog, your rules! – but we are hoping we can revamp things a bit and kickstart some energy back into this weekly blog prompt.
So, we’re going to try something new, sort of a riff on Three Things on Thursday. This week we are asking you to share 3 things on your To Do List with all of us. Everybody likes to write lists, don’t they?!
We welcome feedback and ideas, too, just shoot either of us an email if you’ve got thoughts on all of this.
Happy Writing!
Carole and Kat

Should I list the first thing on my To Do List as: figure out what to do about Think Write Thursday? Not to be Debbie Downers or anything but we’re struggling a bit with how to continue with our weekly Think Write Thursday thing. We want to keep it going but we also want it to be a valuable part of our blog community. Feel free to leave comments with feedback, ideas and suggestions. Sooooo, yeah, let us know what you think.

Okay, on to the real To Do List. It’s exploding, by the way, and I’m not sure how to choose just three items.

  1. Shop and prep all the food and drinks for the baby shower we’re having for Jessica on Saturday. The shopping is the biggest part of this, I think, and I’m hoping to get that done between work and Kiwanis today. It will be nothing short of a miracle if I can pull it off but I’m going to give it my best shot.
  2. Speaking of Kiwanis, I need to get the minutes from our meeting last June done for tonight. Yep, I’ve had alllllll summer to do them and I haven’t. Truth be told, I kind of forgot about them but now the time is here and I have to get them written up and printed out.
  3. Finish and block the baby shower gift. The end of the day today is my drop dead point – however long (or short) it is will have to do because I need time for it to dry before Saturday.

Wish me well, would ya?

If you wrote a post for today I hope you will share it with all of us by adding your link below. If you’d like to receive the Think Write Thursday email just click here to subscribe.

  1. I kind of like the idea of Three Things on Thursday, with the “things” possibly left open. It’s simple, and we might get more participation if we could each choose the three things that were on our minds or going on in our lives each week. Just my $0.02. Of course I wish you well with your list and hope you’re not up too late tonight knitting!

  2. I like the three things idea as well and if you feel like coming up with a topic great and if not that’s great too! Good luck with all the things…that’s a busy list. I’m sure it will all work out though and the shower will be fabulous!

  3. Well. You have a busy day ahead of you! Sending good juju . . . to help you get all you need to do DONE. As for the Think Write Thursday thing . . . I would bet that a more open-ended topic (Three Things on Thursday) would be easier and more relevant for potential participants. (Easier for you and Kat, too.) XO

  4. Okay, I confess your list is giving me a bit of a panic attack! Sending you lots of luck and even more mojo to get all these things done! XOXO

  5. Your list sounds a lot like my life. Never enough hour sin a day (or even if there are, I wait till just before the “thing” needs to be done. A full lif eis a good life!
    PS I like the Three things on Thursday idea, as a prompt with a them. I may even sign on! My list perpetually includes” write a blogpost” 🙂

  6. I, too, like the “3 things Thursday” idea – with or without a topic/prompt. Along with everyone else, wishing you the best of days – you’ve got an awful lot to get done/through today – yikes!!!

  7. What a list! I hope you get it all accomplished.

    I do a weekly Ten Things Tuesday which is whatever I can dream up. I like the idea of a prompt for Three on Thursday. 🙂

  8. As always, you are an ambitious lady, but I am confident you will get it all done. You always seem to do just that.

  9. I like the three things idea and would love to add my blog post if only I had one but this week has kicked me. Hope to join the fun next week. Thanks to you and Kat for being great community builders
