Tomorrow, I’m going to begin a month-long blogging challenge called, “The A to Z Challenge.” The basic idea is that you blog everyday in April except Sundays, and that gets your 26 posts, one for every letter of the alphabet. *I can see your jaw dropping* Not only do I have to come up with a post for each letter, I need to comment and participate on other blogs that are doing the same thing – a whole LOT of participation is needed for this event.
I know, it sounds crazy. It’s going to be a TON of work, but I’m actually pretty excited about it. It’s been suggested that you find a theme to help you focus on what you want to write for each letter and after some consideration, my desired theme is: Exploring Fairy Tales.
This does not mean that I’ll be posting about princesses everyday, even I would be a little bored with that. (And I honestly don’t think there is one with a name that starts with “X”?) I had to stretch the boundaries here a little and I’ve included a nursery rhyme or two, some American tall tales, and one Marvel character.
As I was preparing for this challenge, I got a little excited because some of the stories I selected I hadn’t read since I was a little girl and revisiting these stories kind of reminded me why I like to write. Hopefully you will enjoy this journey as much as (am hoping) I will. And who knows, at the end of the month maybe we will have let our “inner child” loose. What was your favorite story when you were a kid?
