Your mission, should you choose to accept it...

Sculpture Oude Groenmarkt Haarlem, The Netherlands, 2007
That's it. I've only gone and signed up again for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. I did it last year and I'm going to give it another go this year.

It was fun last year and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but now I've signed on the dotted line I've got a slight case of the collywobbles. To complete the challenge requires a certain amount of self-discipline and planning. Last year I signed up at the last minute and with a mix of brute force and ignorance successfully wrote from A to Z through April.

But last year ignorance was bliss. I didn't know then what I know now, which is that it's easy to say "Yeah, I'll do that" and even easier to cock it up through a mix of laziness and ineptitude. Doing the challenge is not like swimming the Channel or climbing Everest, but it's still doing something in public at which I do not want to be seen to fail.

So it's thinking cap on as I try to come up with a theme around which I can work out my schedule of alphabetical postings. I've got a rough idea, but if any of you bright sparks out there have got a suggestion I'd be pleased to hear from you in the comments section of this posting.

In the meantime, if you want to find out more about the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge you can click on the badge at the top right or click here. And if you blog why not give the challenge a go?

If you need a reminder of the alphabet in all its glory here's the ABC RAP.

  1. "F" is for "fat", is that politically correct? Lololol. Last year I stumbled onto A-Z completely unaware. This year I know too much. Oh the horror. My hat is off to you for doing it again. Bravo! It will make April more enjoyable (for me, at least). I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    1. I'm sure the fat they referred to is stuff like trans-fatty acids and polyunsaturated whatsits etc etc. Shame you're not giving the A to Z a go this year, but just think how relaxed you can be throughout April.

  2. So glad you decided to dive in again. This is my fourth year and it's a lot of work but worth the effort.

    1. We can but try. Thank you for following my blog.
