The A to Z Challenge: My Theme Reveal: Strange Things


Greetings one and all, and thanks for stopping by.

Last year, a fellow author and blogger friend recommended I try out this challenge to write 26 blogs themed on the letters of the alphabet to post in April (that’s every day except Sundays).

The fact that I had to write 26 blog posts in about a month was pretty intimidating.  (I was participating in Camp NaNoWriMo in April, so I had to have them all done before April 1 and only found out about the challenge in late February.)  But despite the difficulty, I went with a theme that I knew I had a lot to say about: writing.

Strange Things

I’ll be ruminating on things that I find strange about myself, the world, or anything else that comes to mind.  This means there will be a lot of variety this month.  I’ll be writing about things I find strange about how we all behave.  I’ll be writing about things I find strange about writing.  I’ll be writing about things that get me labeled strange (and whether I find that in turn strange).

While this month may not focus entirely on writing, I’m sure it will crop up fairly often.  It is one of my passions and a wonderful source of strangeness in my life after all.

I hope you enjoy all the strange things in April.
