I. Instagram Highlights
II. April Challenges: #Write_On, #tarquinswords, #GoT6Countdown
For April, I will be focusing on three challenges: #Write_On, #tarquinswords, and one of my own creations #GoT6Countdown. I decided I won’t be doing #rockyourhandwriting this month mainly because I am not making handwriting practice a priority. Instead, I will focus on writing letters, calligraphy, and the return of Game of Thrones!
The Write_On campaign is part of the National Letter Writing Month, a movement created by USPS. The challenge is to write 30 letters in 30 days. I will go into more detail in tomorrow’s post, but I do want to say I am determined to hop on the letter writing movement.
#tarquinswords is an Instagram calligraphy challenge developed by Gourmet Pens and the challenge is to practice calligraphy on Wednesday & Saturday. I like #tarquinswords because I already practice my calligraphy sporadically. Doing the challenge twice a week just feels natural and easy.
The last challenge I will be completing is my Game of Thrones Season 6 Calligraphy Countdown, or simply #GoT6Countdown. I will be posting Game-of-Thrones-themed calligraphy on Instagram every day from April 1st until the season opening on April 24th. This challenge is my personal rendition of the #rockyourhandwriting and #tarquinswords challenge. I loved the idea and it is the perfect way to channel my excitement for the new season! If you’re also super hyped for Game of Thrones, join me in the #GoT6Countdown!
