Musing About A-Z and Other Things

Now that we're in a new year, there's been a lot of talk about the next April A-Z Challenge. That's certainly understandable.  It's an exciting event, and it tends to bring a lot of the blogging community together.  Even those who don't post can partake in the joy of reading what their fellow bloggers have to share.

I have decided that I will participate again this year.  On both my blogs.  I pulled it off last year, and I have no doubt I can do it again.  I just need to remain motivated.  I have my themes selected, and I've written a few posts so far.  My goal is to try to keep them short and interesting.  Hopefully.  I'll reveal more about my plans as we get closer to April 1st.

I've also started writing some 55 Fiction.  It's extremely difficult to tell a complete story in exactly 55 words, but it's been a fun and valuable exercise. I've learned to use my words wisely.

And of course, I'm still working on my longer stories.  My mind is a veritable storm of ideas right now, and I'm trying to harness them the best I can.  Wish me luck!

What are your writing aspirations for the week?


  1. I've already got my A-Z topic decided!

  2. Like Donna, I also already know my topic for AtoZ 2014.

  3. Glad you are on board for the Challenge again this year! Enjoyed reading your story last year. And yes, know my theme and am already working on posts.

  4. I'm still debating participating in A to Z this year. It's such a great event, but I don't know if I'll have the energy for it this year. Good luck, can't wait to see what your theme is.

  5. I've got an A to Z topic in mind too. Looking forward to it this year!
