Day one of the WEGO Health Activist Writer’s Month which I have signed up for – a month dedicated to the art of writing about health. Today’s writing prompt:

Day 1 prompt: Why HAWMC? This is our third year of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge – why did you get involved this year? Are you a newbie to #HAWMC or a veteran?

This is my second year joining in the challenge and in preparing for today’s prompt, I decided to look back on what I wrote last year when I completed the challenge:

I can’t remember which of my blogging friends said at the beginning of this month, that it was a little like pulling back the window on an Advent calendar. And it’s a great description. Each day I felt a ripple of excitement wondering what the writing challenge would be. Some days, I felt they were made for me..others my heart sank a little, as I felt the challenge of going outside my comfort zone – needless to say those days taught me the most about myself and were the most memorable part of this  journey.

So I guess I am looking forward to learning something new this year as I complete the exercises each day.
