There are a couple of writing challenges that begin in April. One of them is Camp NaNoWriMo. This is part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) , also known as “let’s try to write an entire novel during the business month of the year for everyone who is not an accountant.” Think about it. People are preparing for a variety of holidays. Students are ramping up for finals or midterms. No Bueno.
April, on the other hand, is usually pretty open for me (sorry tax preparers). I considered participating in this challenge, but I literally finished and submitted a large writing project on March 30. I’m sketching out my next one, but I could use a break from sprinting toward the finish line.
I did come across a challenge that could be more my speed this month. The Blogging From A-Z Challenge. The premise is that beginning tomorrow, April 1, you blog a letter a day. Any topic, just follow the alphabet. Sundays we get a break.
Here’s the signup and rules. My badge is there ========>
Tune in tomorrow to watch me make an A of myself.
Good luck with A to Z! It’s a lot of fun, as long as you don’t have a meltdown over
…Oh, not sure how but I posted that too early. Take two.
So, as I was saying, don’t have a meltdown over Q. Otherwise I’m sure you’ll do great and not make an A out of yourself 😉 Looking forward to reading your posts!
What sort of thing do you write by the way?
I’m a playwright in my spare time and a full time copywriter. I need to find some non-sitting hobbies or I’ll be as big as a house.
I hear you – I’m also worsening my back problems from hunching over the computer all day long. It’s so easy to lose hours when writing!
I’ve never tried writing plays before (I write novels and the occasional short story) – definitely want to give it a go at some point.
I first started when I noticed how dialogue heavy my fiction was.
Good luck with the A-Z challenge, it should definitely be a wild ride 🙂
