For the month of April I took the challenge of writing a sentence a day. I read a post by Jodie from Jtouchofstyle about writing a sentence a day and she introduced me to Leslie from Once Upon a time happily ever after .
On the first week of each month, we link our posts up and can read what everyone has been up to.
When I first heard about writing a sentence each day for a month, I thought I wouldn’t really have much to say. However, I was surprised at what a full month April was for me.
I enjoyed writing and then reading through what things had been happening in my life and it was a great way to record brief memories on a daily basis. I suppose it is a little like keeping a journal but this was just one sentence. Quick and easy to do.

Why not try this challenge for May? It is surprising what you might write over the course of the month and it is fun reading. You can then link up and read other posts from those taking the challenge.
