The A to Z Challenge Looms

Yesterday morning I woke up and thought that I should start writing my A to Z posts for April.  So imagine my surprise when I opened my email and saw there was a new blog post from the A to Z team.

Next Monday they will announce changes in the challenge.  And they are not giving away any clues as of now.

I have completed four challenges.  They have all involved travel and what I plan for this year is no different.

Have you participated before?  Do you plan to participate again?  Will this be the year you first decide to write from A to Z?

Check out the current post  and watch for the announcement next Monday.


And now I need to begin writing my posts in advance so I can read others posts during the challenge.

  1. I've done A/Z 4 years, but not doing it this year. Will follow along blogs as I can, but life is a bit busy right now to take on another thing especially the A/Z. Have fun with it!

    1. Busy is the reason I have to write everything in advance. At least I know my topic and have an outline. It really is a challenge!

  2. I am probably not going to take part this year. It is a lot of work. The visiting particularly, makes me feel guilty when I miss people etc. Good luck with your posts

    1. I am hoping you are still posting all month. Frankly, I would rather read your posts than visit some of the other blogs out there.

    2. Thank you Denise, I return the compliment. Some people do waffle on. I am sure I will be posting, just not to a strict regimen.

    1. I am curious about the changes too. I am never bored by movies or actors. Do folks get bored with travel?

  4. I have participated for the past 4 years as well. I haven't yet decided about this year. I have a topic that I outlined over the summer. But my heart is just not into it this year. Frankly I find it exhausting to try to visit all the blogs. So many of them just don't capture my attention. I hope that doesn't make me sound boorish! I am anxious to see what the changes will be however!

    1. I am very selective about the blogs I visit. Just like I am selective about whom I read the other eleven months of the year. I don't think anyone should feel they have to read what everyone else is blathering about. I've come across some real crappy stuff in the past.

  5. I was planning to participate again (third time) although I admit that I curtailed my visiting of other blogs early last year. It is a lot of work vs. my other responsibilities. And, I've also found enough blogs that don't seem to do much other than in April. But, on the other hand, I've met a number of bloggers (including you)through A to Z which have become favorites. So I'm going to wait and see what the announcement is. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Considering that there are more than 1000 participants, I have not found many I want to read on a regular basis. You are one of the writers I really enjoy.

  6. I participated once and haven't done it again. I think this year I'll have the space and fortitude to do it again. I too am curious about the changes to the challenge.
