It's a 30 Day Stephen King Challenge!  
People are always doing 30 day challenges on dw, lj, and tumblr. I was feeling left out since they almost always use fandoms I don't give a shit about (Joss Whedon anyone? haha) so I looked around for Stephen King challenges. I found some...but they were kind of craptastical. They asked general questions that were way too open (who is your favorite character) or spoileriffic questions (what did you think of the ending of The Dark Tower Series). So! I created my own! It is all kinds of wonderful and if you've read more than one of his books you'll be able to participate in most of the days and I hope you will :)
