Only a few days remain to finish up the Chipotle Adventurrito puzzle contest. Some of the puzzles have been hard to answer and some of them have been pretty easy to figure out. People have been talking about them and the answers on all sorts of social networks. I’m looking forward to the final 6 puzzles. Fans seem to be pretty excited about the chance to win 20 years of burritos. Day 14 of the contest was called, “Museum of Naturally Raised History.” The challenge involved putting some photos in the right order: Hello Dolly, Farming Forward, Tasty Shares, Say No To Drugs, and Green Cuisine.
I have been working on winning the Chipotle Adventurrito challenge for 9 days now. The puzzles are fun. The 9th puzzle involved listening to music. I had no idea Chipotle has a radio station. The answer last night was 1993. The challenge was fun to work out. Each of the puzzles has been fun to figure out.
The third Chipotle Adventurito puzzle was much harder than the first two. It took me awhile to figure out the answer. The answer was 13, 2013, 20, 7305, 3, 2, 411, 140, 2, 20, 10, 20, 50, 2063, which was both challenging to figure out and completely epic. The Chipotle employees have built some real high quality and somewhat whimsical challenges. The fourth challenge is about to be released. I will be working on it for a while tonight.
The first of twenty Chipotle Mexican Grill adventurrito puzzles was unlocked last night. It took me about thirty minutes to finally get logged into the website. The answer to the puzzle was not what I expected. The answer was rather challenging when the website was not working. The thrill of chasing down the answer had people turning to Twitter for help via the hashtag #adventurrito. A massive amount of traffic actually brought the website down for about an hour.
Being a writer is about production levels. Somebody once said, “Writers write that is what they do…” You have to sit down and make the effort to be a writer. Keep in mind that sitting down and writing a few pages does not guarantee that meaningful prose will spring into existence. My writing pursuits are split between non-fiction academic articles and works of fiction. Over the last few weeks, I have been focused on writing a novel. Its summer and it seemed like the thing to do. I have been working on plan to knock out 1500 to 2000 words a day. I’m starting to think that my level of production will never return to normal. My new plan involves waking up at 4:00 AM drinking a cup of coffee and writing nonstop until 5:15 AM. I think the plan can succeed, but it will require a certain degree of commitment. I have noticed that it has been easier to write while working in my basement office. Maybe the Microsoft natural elite keyboard makes the difference.
