A few weeks ago I committed to participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge during April. What this means is that I will be writing 26 posts during the month of April, in addition to my regular posts here. You’re probably asking WHY.
WHY? I want and need the exercise of discipline that the challenge brings to my writing life. These 26 posts will push me to write more, to be more creative, to be prompt. All of those things, I believe, will be good for my writing routine.
As a theme for my 26 posts, I have chosen to explore the emotions and feelings our characters possess and/or express, whether our genre is memoir, fiction, nonfiction or any of the myriad of genre available.
Each post will move from “A” through the alphabet to “Z.” In the event I am at a loss for a feeling or emotion matching the appropriate letter, we’ll just have to see what I write about that day!
The first post will appear on April 1st, or April Fool’s Day which may indicate the level of my sanity to take part. I hope you’ll come along with me in April to see if I can meet the challenge.
You are a brave soul! I look forward to reading the new posts
Looking forward to participating in the Challenge with you. I hope you have a wonderfully positive Challenge experience.
Nice to meet a fellow participant! Enjoy the Challenge and have a great time.
Sherrey, Sounds both fun and therapeutic. Good luck with the every day blogging! I look forward to reading your posts.
Thanks, Susan! I’m looking forward to challenging myself. 🙂
Sherrey, I’m another April’s fool, so I’m delighted to hear that you’re also taking part in A – Z. You’ve chosen a great topic; I’ll be looking out for your posts 🙂
Belinda, I’m so delighted we’ll be doing this together! I really like your theme, and I’ll be reading your posts too 🙂 I’m actually having a great time with this exercise.
I never thought about such a challenge before and I like it very much. I do believe I will join you from A-Z in April.
Jacqui, welcome to the challenge. I’ll look forward to seeing you there.
Reblogged this on Jacqui Reed and commented:I had never thought about writing in this way and I believe it will be challenging, but helpful in many ways. I look forward to the posts that result.
Jacqui, thanks so much for the reblog!
Hi Sherrey, This sounds really interesting. It seems that you’re already very disciplined in that you’ve got a strategy, you know what you’re writing about and how you’ll approach it. Sounds like the exercise has already bore some important fruit. Can’t wait to read more.
Grace, so glad you stopped by. I don’t expect to dazzle anyone with this “project” I’ve chosen to do but it is making me think more about my writing time and how I organize myself to get ahead with the work. 🙂
