Last year you might remember that I took part in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. You might have also noticed that I put a widget on my blog declaring that I will be taking part in the challenge again this year. (The widget is on your right as if it could not be seen from space.) Frankly, I got a lot of eyes on my blog last year because of the challenge. But primarily I love a challenge, I love to set a goal and complete it especially when it comes to my writing. This blog has become more and more important over the last two years and I feel delighted that people are actually looking at it and liking it.
Most people, when they approach this challenge, like to use a theme to govern what posts they write all month. I have not yet gotten to that point. This blog is so multi-purpose. I love to write short fiction, I love to share a little bit of myself and I love to rave about pop culture. Picking any one of those feels like picking my favorite child. For now, I’m just happy to complete the challenge without restrictions and share the fun with all of you and any newcomers. So I vow to finish all of the A to Z posts. That means that Monday through Saturday during April I will post something. That will be a full twenty-six alphabetical posts. On top of those 26 posts, I will also be finishing a Media Update every Thursday. That is 30 posts for the month of April but I have the eye of the tiger and I will reach my goal. No sweat.
So in lieu of a theme, I’ll give you a little hint of what to expect next month. I’ll give you the names of a few posts and a short description. Won’t that be fun?
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – A review of the movie that I could have held off on until October. This will include some quick references to the book which I have read.
Shield of the Ishim (Part 7) – Another installment of my tale about a trio of monster-hunting magic users.
Jazz – A short look at some of my favorite jazz tunes and my personal connection to them.
And Many More! There will be short fiction, personal posts, movie reviews, a Top 11 list, a What I Love About Pro-Wrestling and more stabs at fanfiction. Come back soon!
