A to Zed is acoming
Hi Y'all! I will be doing the A to Zed for about the fifth year in a row. I think. I'll check on that in a bit! ( I just did and nope it is my sixth) I can't add a badge for a really good reason. I'm not the administrator on this blog! Well, I am - but not under my current email address and I can't get anyone in the blogverse to listen to my tale of woe so not sure how soon I can change it. I can post all I want but nothing with the basic container. That's why I never change my look - which oddly is probably a good thing as I could spend a great deal of time futzing about hanging new curtains and changing the art work.
So until I get the ability to run my own ship (whoa! metaphor collision alert) I'll just keep posting this badge - what fun eh?
My theme? What? I don't know yet - this would be far far too soon. I'll know when I write my first post for Friday. It may be that I write it later tonight as I will be somewhat busy until Saturday except for a bit of time this evening...but truly I haven't quite nailed it yet.
I've done all sorts over the years - just choosing words out of the dictionary and writing little stories with them as inspiration or writing about the important traits of being a writer. But this year? Just not sure. I'm just this week putting the very last polish on my novel - it has gone back and forth between me and my mentor for the past seven months. Now it is ready to find a home - so that might be my theme - shopping the novel - but not quite sure. How could I write about that when I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to go about it?
I might write about the mentors in my life - think I've had at least 26 but do their names fit into the plan - eep - I wouldn't think so. Maybe my posts can be love letters to late bloomers - I think about that quite a bit as I approach aging ungracefully (and ungratefully which is stupid considering the alternative!).
I do want to connect whatever I do to my writing life - my crazy writing life - that is the theme of this blog and perhaps it is enough. 26 posts on why I persist or 26 posts on how I stay inspired or 26 posts on best creative life hacks. Ooh, I think I might be getting close. I'll finish this post - grab a bit of hot chocolate and come back to figure it out. See you Friday!
