This year, I chose not to participate in What’s in a Name 4, though I did participate in the previous three. For 2012, I thought I give it another go — I’ve never completed the challenge before and I want to try again.

At first glance, I thought I’d be setting myself up for failure, but one thing Beth points out in her post is that creativity is encouraged. Her examples for “type of house” included “castle” and “nest” — homes to royalty and bugs/birds. And things that can be carried in a backpack allows for a lot of creativity. I could use a book with the word “kiss” and say it’s a Hershey’s Kiss. 😉 So, if I don’t complete it this time, it will be because of my lack of creativity. 😀

I will track my progress here.
