I Finally Did It.

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.

  1. You should try to preschedule some of your posts. Then you won't suffer from too much burn-out, if you need some more time off. It's within the rules, as long as they're published on the proper day.

    In any case, I'm following you, and am looking forward to seeing what you come up with! :)
