A to Z Challenge 2016

I'm participating in the A to Z challenge this year. This is the first time for me. I'm nervous, excited and totally freaking out!


Thumbing through the big, fat copy of Oxford dictionary lying next to my laptop, to find an appropriate definition of the word 'challenge' to use in this post, I find that only two come close to explaining why I jumped into this foray. They are:
1.  a call to prove or justify something, and
2. (someone) to prove their identity.

I guess I'm trying to see if I can really buckle down to write regularly.

At this point in time, I feel utterly unprepared to embark upon this journey, but, try I must.

Starting from the 1st of April, I will be posting daily (except Sundays). The first post starts with the letter A and by the 30th of April, I should be posting something about Z (fingers crossed!)

I haven't picked a theme.

You can expect a collage of poetry, photographs, musings, short stories and anything else that presents itself to me.

I hope you will read and comment and critique and be here for me. But, most of all, dear reader, I hope you and I can have a great adventure together.

See you here on the 1st of April 2016.

  5. Hello fellow first timer! I decided not to go with a theme this year either. I do have all my post ideas lined up and I know what I plan to write about, it's just a matter of getting the posts written and scheduled. I don't doubt that I can do it though because I have written a post every day so far this year. We will have to see how it goes though. My main reason for joining the challenge was to help me continue to come up with good ideas for posts and to find new blogs to follow and hopefully new followers. I am slowly working my way through the list (I hope to make it through all 1700+ of them, but I have made it to 308), and I have already found some great blogs! Good luck! Cassie from Mommy, RN

    1. Wow! Cassie...respect for going through 308! I wish I had your kind of focus to write and post everyday. I guess, that's why I'm here in this challenge-- to learn and be inspired.
