MY FRIENDS MADE ME DO IT
Okay, that’s not entirely true, but it’s true enough. One friend talking about it last night, another friend posting about it this morning, and then visiting the website…
Yeah. It’s the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
You know you want to sign up, too.
So, the first friend has most of her posts ready. The other friend has hopes to get hers ready.
I have to admit – getting everything ready ahead of time is appealing.
So very appealing…
So I signed up, and my theme is “Catching Up”, because of course it is, you fool! I am behind (understatement) in my 1,000,000 word challenge. I got sick in January and then got sick again after that and I fell off the wagon, and it feels impossible to get back up and do it again. But since there was a trickle of interest sparked by friend one’s convo and friend two’s blog post, I feel like it’s important to grab on to that interest and ride it hard until the words catch up and I’m back on track.
That’s the theory, anyway.
I have the remainder of March to write 30 short stories on the theme of Catching Up and somehow incorporating the alphabet and schedule all the posts because while I managed it before (somehow) writing/posting a story a day, I’d like April to be a bit less frantic this time.
The first time I tried the A-Z challenge was
2016, I believe (nope—2012), and you can buy the book that came from that event on Amazon (affiliate link), Barnes & Noble (print only, apparently), and Smashwords. (Apparently I never posted it on Smashwords?! I’ll fix that at some point. I’m sure I have the files for it.)
