What’s 2.6 Writing about?

The 2.6 challenge is about helping charities make up huge fundraising losses due to covid19 and lockdown restrictions.

I am doing a piece of writing every day for 26 weekdays, each exactly 260 words long, and on a different aspect of the theme  ‘At home.’  I’ve chosen Scottish Women’s Aid, to help women and children who don’t have the safety that home is supposed to mean. 

There is a link to my Justgiving page after each day’s entry. If you enjoy even one of the days and donate a few pounds for that one, that would be something! I’d also love to hear any feedback, ideas or comments. The trickiest part is finding different angles and meeting the exact word count.  Wish me luck, happy reading, and please do share…
