To confront a challenge head first,
with nothing more than the words on my fingertips.
After being caught up by the mass excitement that compelled me to sign up to this challenge to blog every day, I was consequently forced to face the reality of what my hands had invariably committed myself to.
A to Z Challenge (defn): To post each day of the month of April on the basis of the alphabet, excluding sundays...At first the only concerns that I paid any attention to was the fact that April is a very busy month. Theres autumn to deal with, Easter, exams and assignments, my birth date, work...
Yet as I scoured every inch of the website endlessly hoping to prepare myself several other concerns sought to be revealed, such as the need for a theme, preparing posts prior to publishing and of course the ultimate destiny of a month of posts! The realisation that this would outnumber any of my pieces that have already been exposed to the public disturbed my excitement-induced courage and confidence.
But what is the purpose of a challenge if not indeed to challenge!
And so in true tradition of my personality I am ignoring such facts and successfully avoiding any panic or nervousness and instead standing tall with the calm exterior that is my bravado.
I must advise you to take more than a cusory glance at this strange toast to the alphabet and perhaps see it as a chance to expand your writing horizons and experience a tappas of other writing blogs. Perhaps you may even sign up http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
Finally, after partial consideration, I have decided upon a theme that will combine my true passions. So feel welcome in observing the myriad of flash fiction, memorable photographs of past gigs, and diverse samples of music for your perspective.
