|Sculpture Oude Groenmarkt Haarlem, The Netherlands, 2007|
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.
