A to Z April Challenge
Hoping to Cross the Finish Line
I have thrown my hat – not really, I am keeping my Trusty Texas Tiara – into the #AtoZChallenge. Why would I, a non-writer, do this? Actually there are many different kinds of bloggers that have signed up for the blog challenge, photo blogs for example, that are not so-called writers. In my case however, I am an admitted “Grammar Vandal”. As my husband says I commit grammar misdemeanors and felonies on a regular basis. He would know as he is also the one that edits almost every post. No, I am not joining the challenge to make his head explode (I love you Warrior, I promise to try to write
more gooder...even better).
I guess the main reason, out of the many, that I am going to attempt the challenge is because I have accumulated a lot of information from research, trial and error and osmosis. Big thanks to my parents who would be
yapping at talking to me about the technical side of publishing and computers when I really just wanted to bury my nose in a novel. So, as I was saying, I have all this information in my brain that I would like to share with authors, writers and aspiring authors to help them and a nice side benefit would be if I could clear some space in my memory for the things that matter most.
Since I decided to do this, I did what I (try) to do for most of my
outlandish brilliant ideas. I got my ever-present planner, notebook and Diet Coke; settled into a comfy place to doodle… scribble…I mean brainstorm on paper. Three days later I emerged from my hidey-hole – dehydrated, shriveled and seriously jonesing for gummy worms and my hubby (not in that order at all!) Okay, I am exaggerating on all those points except one, can you guess which? Anyway, after a few hours I had a rough outline of what I was going to publish and a few posts really fleshed out including “Z”. Most of my absurd posts will deal with publishing, writing or formatting for print and e-publishing. I am after all trying to help authors and writers.
Whew, all that info rattling around in my brain and you will be the lucky recipients. Are you doing a happy dance? I am going to ‘Bust a Blogging Bonanza’ with some ‘Krazy Kamikaze Kontent’!
