Am I the only Aprilian morosoph here? Probably not, but my reasons are likely crazier than most. Once again I’ve decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. With more than 1,300 other bloggers, I’ll be posting daily on topics following the alphabet from day-to-day. You can see what I have to say starting tomorrow at my News From Nowhere blog.
Blogging that much and that often is intense, but I decided to add to the craziness by also joining Camp NaNoWriMo for another 50,000 word novel-writing challenge. A few of my friends in the Colorado Writers and Publishers group on Facebook have a cabin at the Camp and we’ll all plow through together, insane fools that we are. Specifically, my posts will talk about the novel and how the writing is coming along.
In truth, all this writing is less about playing the fool than putting a stop to months of fooling around. I haven’t written anything serious since before Christmas, and as I was brainstorming topics for the A-Z Challenge, words like aging and dying seemed to hit home… hard. I’ll write more about those subjects and my feelings as well as how it’s going throughout the month, so bookmark my blog and come leave me some comments! You can also follow along at Facebook and Twitter.
What about you, friends? Any interesting April writing projects on your desk? Do you find that winter coming to an end changes your focus? Are you more inclined to write, or are you suffering from spring fever as the days warm up? Do tell!
