I finally broke down and signed up for the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge.
This will be my third year, and I waited so long to decide because I wasn't sure if I would have the time or energy to fully participate this year. As if I ever have the time or energy to do it. Like many of you I start off strong the first week; publishing my entry, responding to and visiting commenters, visit some favorite bloggers, and meet 5 to 10 new bloggers. But by the time Q rolls around, I'm just so burned out by the process.
I'll try to do better this year. I couldn't not participate, because it's such a great way to meet new bloggers. I love the variety of people who participate, and the sheer volume (I'm number 1240 on the list). And once I hit on my theme on my long-ass drive home from work the other night, I knew I had to do it.
I came up with something that I think is original enough, and I hope, easy enough. I am going to use a random word generator. I will choose the first word I come across that starts with the letter of the day. Then, I will write a couple of sentences using the word as inspiration. It won't actually be flash fiction, because I don't have any intention of putting in that much effort this year, but if something coherent comes out, that would be nice.
