Welcome to the FIRST EVER Buttontapper Challenge!

About the Challenge

The Buttontapper Challenge is a writing challenge with a new theme each month. We’ll follow a set of prompts and write about them each day, sharing snippets on social media.

January’s Theme: New Year, New You!

As January looms on the horizon, I’ve been getting ready to start my new year off right. I’ve been planning and goal-setting for 2018, using my 18 Before 2018 list, Lisa Jacobs’ Your Best Year workbook, and the December Boho Berry Challenge prompts. Now I’m ready to share my New Year’s planning process with you.

I’ve divided the list up into prompts that will help you think about both the past year AND the year to come, with forays into various planning and goal-setting tools, tricks and ideas I’ve picked up along the way. I can’t wait to see your responses to these prompts!

The challenge prompts are completely open to interpretation, but I’ve written up a “behind-the-scenes” explanation for why I chose each one, and what I’ll be writing about that day, to give you some ideas about what to write in case you find yourself stuck.

You can find a more detailed explanation of each prompt right here.

Here’s how the challenge works:

Each month, I’ll post a new challenge graphic here on my blog, over on Instagram, and within our private Facebook Group. This graphic will contain daily writing prompts that you can use to guide your writing or journaling practice.
