An Oddly cHallenging Journey


An Oddly cHallenging Journey

Let's take an Oddly cHallenging Journey through the month of August 2012!

Remember last month's journey?  We had so much fun that we're doing it again!

Every day in August at about 7:13 a.m. (New York timezone*), I'll tweet two words with the hashtags #ohjDailyWords and #ohj from @OddlyStarry.

Your job is to contribute tweets inspired by one or both words.  Tag your tweet with #ohj or #OHJ.  Since we're taking an oddly challenging journey through the month of August, try to make your tweet related to COMPETITION in some way.

The 2012 London Olympics inspired this month's theme.  Think of tweets that are related to competing in some way.  Sports and games come to mind, but there are other ways of competing as well!


Since OHJ originated with haunted tweets, I wouldn't object to you sneaking in a scary tweet! :)  (Or a Hgeeky tweet.)  (Or a Hallucinogenic tweet.)

One of my words will be fairly simple and common, while the other will be a bit more unusual.  Sometimes they'll both be common.

In addition to typical text tweets containing a short story, pun, haiku, gogyohka, tanka, etc., you could also make a link to a photo, a video, a sound, or anything else you can think of!

You don't have to use the word exactly as given.  For example, if the word is "run", you could use run, runs, running, ran, or runnable.  Or you could just use the word as an inspiration, and go with sprint or race.  Keep in mind that many words have more than one definition, and more than one part of speech.

You could also combine one of my words with words from other games like Loqwacious5poemArtwiculateLiblitHaikuchallenge, and others!

Once in a while, just to keep things fresh, I might ask you to supply the caption to a picture, or I might do a hashtag game.

Have fun!  :)
