I’m laying in bed, the night before the event starts, and narrating my blog post. This isn’t exactly anarchy, but as far as a disregard for the rules goes, I think I’m doing pretty well.
I’m narrating my blog post because I had an idea for the video that should go with it and I don’t want to forget. The video title should be, of course, Absolute Anarchy. Just to keep up with the alphabet theme. Also, alliterations.
The video contents are going to be along the lines of announcements of the events that are starting on the first day of April. These are not April Fools’ jokes.
April 1st is the start of both the A to Z Blogging Challenge, and Camp NaNoWriMo. As a side note, I’m terribly thrilled that my dictation software spelled NaNoWriMo correctly. First try. Nice.
Here’s where the anarchy comes in. I have mentioned more than once why I do not participate in these events any longer. I don’t want to rehash all that. The short version is that the strict adherence to the guidelines of these particular challenges takes all the fun out of the challenges for me these days.
So I won’t follow the rules. I signed up for the blog challenge but I won’t sign up for the novel challenge. I may try to write a novel. I may fall behind in the blog challenge. It’s going to be a crapshoot what shows up here from day to day.
If you’re up for that, or you’re my friend, welcome! Feel free to not point out when I haven’t met one of the goals of one of the challenges. I know. Trust me. Life hasn’t gotten any less crazy in 2021 for me. I’m just doing my best. That’s all any of us can do.
So here’s my blog post! All written!
Let’s see what happens with the video tomorrow. See you then.
You made it all the way to the end? Faboo! Want to subscribe to my YouTube channel? Lovely! <- that particular link will do that annoying thing where it asks you to subscribe the minute you land. If you don’t want to subscribe, I understand. If you don’t want to stay subscribed, I understand. If you subscribe then get overwhelmed and then unsubscribe later, and then come back in a few weeks because you really, really missed me, I understand! 💖
