Almost time!

This weekend, the A-Z Challenge starts up again for April!  I have a super-busy month already planned with trying to ready a contest entry and taking my first trip to mainland Europe, but I'm looking forward to it.

Also, I managed to convince the lovely Shelley Greene to participate, too!  It'll be her first time doing the A-Z Challenge, so give her a follow and make her feel welcome.  Her blog is

A to Z Challenge, here I come!

Last year, I got my big start in blogging by jumping into the A to Z Challenge started by Arlee Bird.  Over the month of April, you post one entry per day that corresponds with the letter assigned.  Usually Sundays are off, and the rest of the days should equal out to 26...perfect for one per letter.  You'll do a post and read and comment on other bloggers' blogs and entries.

This year, I'm giving it another shot!  I'd love to reach 200+ followers, though that's not the sole purpose of doing this challenge.  I love the discipline of doing something every day, and I know I definitely need that motivation, even with my own writing.  It's a great way to get into a writing routine.

It's also a wonderful way to meet some awesome people.  I met a lot of lovely folks, other writers and bloggers alike, during the challenge in 2011, and I'm looking forward to reading some more creative blogs this year.  There are a ton of people signed up already...I signed up on Feb 29th, and am #826.

Are YOU doing the A to Z Challenge?  If you're interested, sign up here.
