2012 April A to Z Blog Challenge

Registration for the 2012 April A to Z Blog Challenge opened on January 30th, and as of yesterday when I signed up there were already over 400 bloggers committed to the annual challenge.

The A to Z Challenge is not for the faint of heart. Lots of bloggers dropped by the wayside last year as the month wore on and they realized they'd taken on more than they could do. It's tough. It's rigorous. But it is oh so much fun!

Last year I blogged through an alphabet of literary devices, giving explanations of each, examples from literature, and then my own example. Each day, my own demonstration of the use of the literary device du jour built on a story thread that ran from A to Z. All of this resulted in a Kindle book:

Though I have been pondering the A to Z Challenge, dare I say, since November, I still have not decided how to approach it this year. I've got lots of ideas bumping around upstairs, though, and by March 31st, one will filter down through my fingertips and poise itself to enter the blogosphere.

Meanwhile, I'm stocking up on snacks and survival supplies.

Think you're ready for the challenge? Sign up today!

I won't be doing that challenge this year but I will be visiting. My book will be coming out this year and I've got a lot to do besides show up at my day job everyday.

Have fun with it.

So good to see you back with us this year, Lucy. I didn't realize that you'd done this book. It's the third book that I've heard about that resulted from last year's Challenge. I'll be giving you a mention on my recognition post on the A to Z Blog next Sunday.

Good luck with your theme for this year; I'm still struggling to figure out what to post about myself.

So glad you're doing the A-to-Z again this year! I'm still working on what I'll post about during the A-to-Z, as well. I look forward to seeing what you go with!
