When I was a little girl, I wanted to be just two things when I grew up: five foot nine and a writer. I only made it to five foot seven, but guess what! Yesterday I self-published a book!
How to Celebrate National Days: Instructions for Enjoying Daily Pseudo-Holidays, Volume 1 is the work of my not-so-secret alter-ego, Certain Doom. Over on Certain Doom’s site (followmetocertaindoom.com), I post questionable advice for a different “national day” celebration every single day. It’s a lot of fun and surprisingly challenging, but more than anything else, it allows my mind to go to some very weird places. Here’s a recent example…
I have a new personal project. It’s been a rough sort of year so far, and I’m looking for ways to make my daily life more fun, more interesting, more ridiculous.
So, I started a new blog/game called Follow Me To Certain Doom – workplace challenges to make your day more interesting.
Each week, I’ll post a new challenge for you to undertake at work. I’ll provide rules and scoring criteria. I’ll even provide a spreadsheet you can use to calculate your scores.
I just posted the second challenge last night and, so far, the response has been awesome. Complete strangers have been sending me images of their challenge results for me to post to the FMTCD Instagram. EXCITEMENT!
