January 23: Interview About The Past Welcome to MOC 9! I'm excited to be hosting the January 23rd JOURNAL challenge. INTERVIEW ABOUT THE PAST. Have you ever noticed that your memories of a time or event are dissimilar or even completely different than those of someone else? That is what today's challenge is all about. You will need to "interview" someone. Ask questions pertaining to a past time/event (at least 5 years ago). Your layout must include the journaling of the questions and their answers, along with your own observations about that time/event. You may interview anyone you like, maybe a family member, a friend, one your children, etc. Have them write their answers down or talk to you as you take notes. The rules for today's challenge are simple: Interview someone about a past time/event that occurred 5 or more years ago. On your page, include the questions, the interviewee's answers and your own answers. Journaling must be 250 words or more. Here is a word counter to copy and paste your journaling into to get an accurate word count. https://wordcounter.net/ Challenge Clarification: Interview someone, create a page that includes both questions and answers (from both interviewer and interviewee) and journaling must be a minimum of 250 words. Photos are optional. Further clarification since this is a journaling challenge: Your journaling should be in complete sentences to qualify as complete. Word art will not qualify toward your word count. You cannot use the same word over and over. You cannot use the same sentence over and over again. Journaling challenges are meant for telling stories; if your journaling is sensitive or personal, please message me or Julie (mrs2a50) directly to discuss. Your journaling should be legible and readable. If your page is not in English, we ask that you translate your journaling to English and post the translation in your gallery credits. If your journaling has been distressed or your font is too small to read, you should post your journaling in your gallery credits. Again, if your journaling is sensitive and/or personal, please message me or Julie directly to discuss. Here's my sample page. I interviewed my youngest daughter about Xmas. Standard MOC rules apply: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. Your page must contain Lilypad product (pages with photos and font only do not count). If you use product from other stores, your pages must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).
