Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

I’m going to drop this post like it’s hot before I change my mind…

I’m thinking about participating in the A to Z Challenge in April 2020.

No, no, no.

I WILL participate in the A to Z Challenge in April 2020.

I know, I know…It wasn’t that long ago that I DECLARED that I was DONE with writing challenges (even if you’re truly bored, please don’t scroll back through my old posts and say, “Yeah, you did say that!”)

So yeah, I’m in.

First, I was thinking about writing a series of 26 “background” posts through the eyes of one of the characters in one of my stories. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much work it would be for little personal gain and so I nixed it.

Then, I thought about writing to 26 reasons why I’m writing the Wattpad story I’m still working on. I quickly realized that I wouldn’t be able to be totally authentic and open with that approach and so I nixed that too.

And that’s when it hit me.

As far as I know, there is no rule that says I can’t repost a previous participation. And if there is such a rule, don’t bother correcting me because I’m going to do what I plan to do anyways.

So…

After all that debating with myself, I’ve decided that I will repost a previous A to Z project and then use it as a springboard to ….

well…

…I won’t tell you about that just yet.

I’m still hashing out those details in my head and my head is a crazy space these days.

Stay tuned.

Will you be doing the A to Z Challenge this year? If so, let me know!

Bisous xoxo

  1. At the moment, I would have to say I’m not doing A to Z this year. It’s been hard for me to post at all.. even once a month is a challenge. Just when I think I might be getting back into it, something stops me. Something I can’t identify, usually. So… doing A to Z seems kind of impossible for me.

    1. I get it. And I know what you mean when you say just when you think you might get back into it something happens…Yes I know that well. For me I’m thinking that at least it would be a way to maybe wet my appetite and get that story re-edited at the least. You have to do what’s best for you as I always say and not beat yourself up about it. I’ve read about tons of writers who stopped writing for years and then eventually went back to it when the feeling felt right or when circumstances allowed them to.πŸ’œ

      1. Maybe someday… I don’t know. This afternoon, I started to feel like I might write something, but something came up and my mood took a nosedive. Now writing is totally out of the question. Who knows when it’ll come back to me…

      1. Yes! I decided to try my hand at world creation, so my A to Z is going to be describing my world in 26 different aspects. πŸ™‚ And probably some excerpts from the novel series I’m working on set there.

    1. I start so many projects and then get distracted with new ones, i finish nothing. So I figure if I take up old one and use it as a base to jumpstart something else maybe that will help me.

    1. Nice to meet you. Well, you can always visit the blog roll on the A to Z Challenge website to see what others are doing to get some ideas. My default is always fiction but there are so many creative ideas I’ve seen others do over the years. Cheers.
