Announcement time! This April, join me in participating in Cask & Quill’s Literary Life Challenge! 30 days of bookish activities lay before you. Can you make it to the end? The goal of this challenge is to show how easy it can be to add a touch of literary magic to each day! Keep reading for more.
As you may know, it’s my goal here at Cask & Quill to help and encourage you to live a literary life! But what on earth is a literary life? Well, to me it means deepening your relationship with books and reading by setting an intention to enrich your life with literary elements as often as possible. In short, getting more out of books.
Reading gives book lovers a chance to indulge in one of their great passions. There’s nothing like retreating to the open arms of a book, especially when the day gets long. But a literary life goes beyond reading a chapter before bed every night. Most people are busy and, whether or not we have time to read everyday, life can get monotonous and dull. Wouldn’t it be great if we could find a way to inject a bit of that wonderful feeling we get from reading into the day? This challenge is a chance to jump start your literary life:
Each prompt can be interpreted in whatever way makes most sense to you. Get creative! The point is to get in the habit of carving out some time in each day to connect with your literary mind. Most of these prompts can be done in 30 minutes or less, but please adapt them to your own schedule if necessary. Just get out there are start cultivating your literary life!
Show me on Instagram how you’re doing! Use #quillclublitlife to participate and see what others are coming up with and tag me @caskandquill if you like! For the Instagram challenge I’ve assigned days to each prompt, but feel free to jump around and make it work for you. I’ve also created a printable checklist to mark off the prompts you’ve completed, if that’s more helpful to you. Print it out and stick it in your planner!
I can’t wait to see what a literary life means to each of you! Let me know in the comments or on Instagram if you plan to join in. I hope after completing this challenge together we all feel like happier and more connected book lovers!
