30 day challenge and stuff

So,
On facebook currently there is a Drachenwald 30 day challenge started by Kerttu going on and many of us have decided to take up a new hand or learn illumination.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/305990889505083/

the upside of this is people also share cool links and I have added three of these which have to do with handwriting ( thank you Lia) to the "places to study" side bar.

Also people are and will be posting pictures of their progress. So if you are on facebook and wish to join please go to the link. The group is open so even if you don't want to join you can still see what is being done and discussed ( of course you do need to be on facebook to see)

also if people find great links for teaching feel free to let me know and I will add them to the side bar, same goes for your blogs and galleries. If no one tells me I don't know about them.

cheers
Bri

PS: This is the original challenge post:

Are you up to a challenge? Pick something you want to improve and do that for 30 days, preferably consecutively. When you start, write your challenge here. If you can take a photo of your first day effort and post it too. When you are finished with the 30 days, write a post detailing how many days it actually took, how have you improved and post a picture of the last day results if you can.

Your challenge can be anything you want: calligraphy, brocade tablet weaving, conditioning for that bear pit tourney, drawing a new but still too stiff bow... Whatever you want. But just do it.

I'd love to take part, but ANOFB (am not on Facebook).

Can someone please repost the text of Kerttu's challenge, ie if there are any specific rules/guidelines?

I'm resolved to 'get' gilding, and this is a good time to set to it.
