In April, I participated in the A to Z challenge where each day (except Sundays) you post on a new topic following the letters of the alphabet. So April 1 was A, April 3 was B and so on.
This was my fourth year doing the challenge. The organizers of the challenge suggest you pick a theme for your writing. The first year I didn’t do a theme. The next year it was TV shows and then last year I did characters. This year I decided to write about antagonists.
Now I typically have certain days that I already have topics to write about so I decided to incorporate the theme of antagonists on those days too. So here was my posting schedule.
Monday – Parenting (with an antagonist twist – topics included bad boys, high school and the word NO)
Tuesday – Antagonist
Wednesday – Quote by an antagonist
Thursday – Writing (about antagonists – topics included evil, killers, witches and questions to ask your antagonist)
Friday – Antagonist AND my scheduled Featured Author (Any authors interested in being on my Friday Feature, contact me through the About Me section.)
Saturday – Antagonist
I know many people on the challenge write their posts throughout the month or even the day they are to post. But I picked my topic and planned out my posts beginning in February. I had them all done by the end of March. It was nice not to have to write any blogs in April, which is a very busy month for me. If I left my writing to the day of (or day before), I would probably have ended by the letter F like many of the others who signed up to participate.
Part of the challenge is also to visit other blogs. You never know when you will find a new favorite blogger. In past years, I have done better at this but this really has been a busy month. I did make it to some blogs and even some that were very interesting.
As always, I enjoyed the challenge and look forward to doing it again next year.
