Throwing down the gauntlet. (Or alternately known as: A monthly challenge to all to get writing!)

Good old Wikipedia says: To “throw down the gauntlet” is to issue a challenge. A gauntlet-wearing knight would challenge a fellow knight or enemy to a duel by throwing one of his gauntlets on the ground. The opponent would pick up the gauntlet to accept the challenge. The phrase is associated particularly with the action of theKing’s Champion, which officer’s role was from mediæval times to act as champion for the King at his coronation, in the unlikely event that someone challenged the new King’s title to the throne. Whilst commiserating with several blogger friends lately, we’ve discovered that none of us blog as much/as often as we want to.

So, without further ado, I’m going to throw down the gauntlet. Gauntlet_game_flyerNo, not that gauntlet.  (Although that’s a great classic arcade game. I’ve spent many hours and many more quarters trying to beat that damned thing).

The challenge subject for January is an easy one: Color.

No specific color, just write something about how color affects you, or your favorite color, perhaps the color of winter where you live. Maybe your little colored the walls.  Maybe your walls need new paint anyway and you can’t choose a color.  To quote skittles, taste the rainbow, and color the blogosphere.
