GESSO challenge


I am a part of GESSO — a small online community for creative bloggers — and I decided to take part in the Gesso: Primed Creatives Blogging Challenge. This year-long challenge has several levels and comes with a list of prompts for each; I’m aiming for the Silver Award which will require writing fifty-two themed blog posts by the end of August 2019. If life intervenes I can always fall back and just complete the twelve prompts for the Bronze award, but it’s going well so far.

I’m aiming to publish these posts on Saturdays and I’ll try to remember to keep this page updated, but you’ll always be able to find them from the gessocreatives tag.
