A-Z April Challenge

An A-Z challenge sounded too good to miss. Easy enough to do, just make a post every day from April the First with a topic based on a letter of the alphabet. They need to be posted in order, every day except Sundays, making 26 days for 26 letters. A fun challenge.

But! Is it really as easy to do as it may seem? To pick a topic to match each letter? What happens if writer's block sets in the day before the letter M is due, for instance? What can we blog about for the letter X aside from X Rays?

The A-Z Team who started this have been doing it for two years now and are looking to increase the number of blogger contributors, so if you want to join in all you need to do is click on the button to get to their site giving full explanations.

Well, I'm looking forward to it and will do my best to keep to it, try to find a subject for every letter, make a post a day, no thinking I'll do it tomorrow.

Now, shall I go freestyle or have a theme?

Quite a challenge and I'll be interested in your free style /theme decision.

Thanks for spreading the word about the challenge!

It's wonderful to meet you and I look forward to seeing your posts in April. It will be fun to see if you choose freestyle or theme. (I'm going with a theme. . . in case you were wondering.)

Hi DayDreamer, first time visitor and great to meet you! I have a theme for the A to Z Challenge. This worked for me last year. Looking forward to your posts.

Uh oh. I see your Word Verification (WV) is still on. I'm on a mission to rid the world of this unnecessary evil frustration! Please stop by my blog and select the How To Turn Off Your Word Verification tab and help make the world a better place one blog at a time.

Writer's block shouldn't be an option as long as you have a dictionary nearby--topics are unlimited.

Have fun with it! I'm linking your post to the A to Z Sunday Summary and now following your blog.

Welcome aboard! I go freestyle myself, but that's really a personal choice! :)

DayDreamer said...

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

Hi Welshcakes, hope I manage it.

Will be interested to see your theme when you start, Konstanz.

Apparently the word verification has become a lot harder to read now, Stephen, will check your blog about it.

A dictionary is a good idea, Arlee. Thanks for following.

Thanks for the welcome, DL.

Hi - Nice to meet you - am just getting ahead on the A-Z list. I did the challenge last year and opted for no theme... and it was great fun. And if writer's block sets in for M... post a pic of your mother... or a mole hill... or your pet mammoth... you get my drift :)

DayDreamer said...

Hi Laura, that's a good idea to start getting ahead.
My pet mammoth would make a great picture :)
