In case you missed my last writing post, I’m in a bit of a rut. There’s a lot going on right now, and it’s hard enough to find the time (and will) to feed my family and keep the house clean. I’m barely managing to get my paid writing assignments finished … working on my manuscript is pretty low on my list of priorities, and blogging has sunk even lower. It’s not that I don’t like to blog, but when the brain is pre-occupied, coming up with post ideas just plain sucks. I’d rather stop blogging than waste people’s time, and I was honestly considering it. Then I read Patty’s post.
I ventured over to OrdinaryLives.net and found Patty’s post about the blog desert. Long story short, she’s also having a hard time with post topics, so she created a challenge. We’re going to work through the alphabet, one letter a week, until we hit Z.
Since I have a pretty rigid blog schedule, I’ll be joining the fun in June. My regularly schedule Writing Post dates (5th, 12th, 19th, 26th of each month) will still be writing related, but they will also take me through the alphabet. My schedule is a little bit off from everyone else’s (because I’ll be skipping some weeks due to the way the days fall), so instead of finishing just before Thanksgiving, I’ll wrap it up in December.
This has me pretty excited. It takes off a lot of the pressure, and it also gives me a plan (and I really like planning). Here’s to an alphabetical year!
