Father's Day is coming up in a few weeks (Sunday, June 15), and I thought some of you might want to do some writing about fathers, father figures, or fatherhood in general.

Here are some possible writing topics to explore in June. This month I'm not going to assign a special format or assignment. You can choose any of the following topics and write a blog in any way you please. Let's make a Father's Day collection of writing! 

Your Task

1. Choose a topic from the list below. 

2. Add a new blog post. Use the title, Writing Challenge: Fathers.

3. Write your post. Check for spelling, formatting, punctuation, etc.

4. Publish your post and share a link to it in the comments below. 

Father's Day Writing Topics

How Fatherhood Has Changed Since I was a Kid

The Best Thing About Being A Father (for the MyEC Dads)

A Father Figure In My Life (Tell us about someone who is like a father to you.)

Daddy Dearest (Why you love your dad.)

A Letter To My Dad (For a dad who is far away or no longer with you.)

A Short Biography Of My Dad

A Fictional Story About A Bad/Good Dad

A Father's Day Poem

My Father the _______________ (tell us something interesting about your dad)

My Example: 

My Father The Globetrotter 

My dad loves to travel. When I was in high school, my dad won a trip to Portugal. My mom and dad had a wonderful time in Europe. It was their first trip abroad. My parents were bitten by the travel bug, and began taking many vacations. They mainly enjoyed all-inclusive island destinations such as St. Martin and Dominican Republic. My brothers and I enjoyed a lot of freedom!

When my mom passed away unexpectedly at the age of 51, everyone worried about my dad. What would he do without her? My parents had been high school sweethearts. 

My dad surprised us all by continuing to explore the world. He retired a few years later, and then got remarried. Lucky for my dad, his new bride loves to travel as well. My dad's wife is semi-retired, which allows her to travel whenever she pleases.  

When people ask, "How's your dad?" I don't always know how to respond. The question in my mind is usually, "Where's my dad?".  It's difficult to keep track of which country my dad is in, let alone which continent! In recent years, he has been to Australia, Greece, Spain, Ireland, and Hawaii. Like many retirees, my father's travel mode of choice these days is cruising. 

One day, I hope my dad sits down for long enough to write about his journeys. I'm sure he has great stories that I have never heard!
