Gearing up for A-Z

I am one of the nearly 900 brave souls who have signed up for the A-Z April Blog Challenge hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh et al.

During the month of April participants are to post daily except for Sunday, subjects progressing through the alphabet, starting on April 1st with A.

In the last few days I've seen lots of people who plan to participate posting that they've got all of their posts prewritten and scheduled ahead of time, or at the very least they've selected subjects for every day and they're all organized and prepared and ready to go.

I envy them.

I am not, nor have I ever been, that organized or prepared. I will be following my little pantser heart and flying by the seat of my - yes - pants. I will scramble on a daily basis for inspiration and to write something brilliant, insightful, or creative. But that's okay. I'm used to it. That's just the way I roll. Always have.

But I do envy people who have the time and gumption to be that organized. It might be a nice change of pace.

Thankfully, these posts are supposed to be short in order to facilitate quick reading so that we can all read and comment on as many posts as possible. The chances are small that anybody will make it through all 900 sites in a month, much less in a single day (FYI:  I'm #590 on the list). So short and sweet will definitely win the day.

So come back tomorrow to see what I come up with for A. I still have no idea. It'll be as much a surprise to me as it is to you!

I'm definitely looking forward to reading as many other blogs as possible, meeting new people, finding new writer friends, and being inspired by awesome creativity!

Go ahead and fly by the seat of your pants! And yeah, I have all of my posts written and waiting...

I have them all written. I still have to add pictures but still done. I just found it to be easy to write them as they popped up in my head otherwise I would start scrambling, you know? Good luck!! We'll see you tomorrow!
