A to Z Challenge

atoz-theme-reveal-2016 v2

It’s that time of year again. The A to Z Blogging Challenge.

During the month of April I will be posting 26 times – working my way through the alphabet.

You can do it too. Sign up here. I will also be visiting as many other participant’s blogs as possible.

I did it last year, and it is a great way to make me focus on actually writing something every day.

This year – I am going to do a little differently and focus on a theme rather than random ramblings.

I am going to blog about my debut novel and stealing shamelessly a joke from Author Ben Adams, I can unequivocally say that the novel will be the best debut novel ever written by me.

I can promise you honesty, posts short enough that they do not require meal breaks, and maybe, possibly, an insight or two that will make you laugh or nod sagely. I’ll take either result!

Hopefully this exercise will force me to crack on and finish the novel. Editing is a new thing for me, and I find it hard. The hardest is actually getting on with it.

And on that bombshell, I’m off for a haircut.

Comment. Agree, Disagree. I would love to hear from you.

    I was always relieved when I saw a short post last year. It’s hard to keep mine short, depending on the topic, but I’ll try my best.

    Hopefully this will inspire you to finish that rewrite! I feel your pain…I hate rewrites too.

    • Reply Stuart 29th March 2016 at 6:05 am

      It is a test isn’t it? I am about to publish a long one too – but it is still pre-April. Just!

    Hope this years theme works on lots o levels, for you, your perspective readers, and for the future of your book. I love the #Challenge. This is my 4th year and except for the letters X & Z, I’m ready. See you in April.

    • Reply Stuart 30th March 2016 at 8:16 am

      Well done! I have some ready, and will get some more done today. In much better shape than I was this time last year.

  • Reply Cynthia 30th March 2016 at 5:07 am

    I think blogging about your new novel is a nice way to reflect on all the work you put into it.
    See you in April.
