100 days, 100 posts, 100 words – the book!!!

Exciting news! I’ve now published a book containing the 100 posts I made here on my blog, every day for 100 consecutive days, each of exactly 100 words! The reason I started this was not just for my own entertainment – and I did enjoy doing it although there was a lot of pondering and head-scratching, but it was as part of the Captain Tom Moore 100 challenge:

People were challenged to do 100 things in order to raise money for Captain Tom’s Foundation, and when I successfully completed my self-set task I donated £100 to it. Now I’ve pulled my posts into a book, and any profit I make from it will also go to the charity. This is what I wrote as a hundred word introduction:

April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.

Here is a link to my Amazon page where you can buy the book, if you so desire! From time to time I will share updates on what I’ve raised so far.
