The challenge sign-up is here!

It's time to sign up to this amazing blogging challenge. Can you write a post for every letter of the alphabet? Do you want to try? If so, click on the logo and do it - go on, you know you want to!

I've done it. It's my first time, so I'm not quite sure how I'll manage -  seeing as though, less than 2 years into my blog, I don't have a schedule for posting and tend to just do a random splurge of thoughts whenever I want. I'm really looking forward to it, and to discovering lots of new blogs and bloggers!





In other news: I survived January! It helped that I was able to distract myself by planning a birthday meal for my mum, which we all enjoyed last night, even though the table was booked absurdly early because it was a school night, and we were the only people in quite a large pub. We were having so much fun, we didn't even notice that until we left!

I'm awaiting the final edits for Cat and the Dreamer, and seeing the cover for the first time. I've pretty much finished a trilogy of novellas, which I'm hoping will be ready for submission in a couple of weeks - it only really needs a last read-through for those silly mistakes that always creep in. I'm still hoping I can make one of the stories longer as it's come in at under 10,000 words.

And, finally, I've retrieved the folder with my novel inside from the bottom of a pile to the top of it, in the hope that I'll feel inspired to read it soon - and therefore be inspired to have a good redraft with my trusty red pen.

Happy February!

    1. I'm not sure how much plugging I'm doing, seeing as though most of my followers have come from your Insecure Writers group - they should already know all about it!

  6. I'll be doing the A to Z Challenge for the second time. I've even planned my A to Z list, but haven't actually written the posts or taken photos. (Ah - there's a clue.) Looking forward to reading yours :)

    1. I'm planning my list at the moment, but I'm stuck on V and X - I might have to cheat. Hmm, photos... I'm intrigued!

  7. I'm doing the challenge for the first time - I've had to resist the urge to just post a song every day :-)

    1. But that would be so perfect for you. There HAS to be a song element, surely?

  9. January went by so fast! I feel like I was really productive and off to a good start. Listen - last year I was on a jury for 10 days during April, and I did the challenge - so you can do it!! I plan to keep mine shorter this year and to try to keep them lighter too.
