Guest Post at A to Z

Good morning writercizers!  

An early post today.  I'm guest posting over at the A to Z Challenge home page with some tips and tricks for the annual blogging challenge coming up in April.  Sign-ups begin January 30, and host Arlee Bird has been posting insight from previous years' participants since the beginning of December.  

If you are familiar with the challenge, I look forward to blogging with you again this year!  If you are not familiar with the challenge, try it out.

I'm posting the writercize from the guest post below; for the full entry and background visit the Challenge site today!

writercize:  Write down the letters A through Z in a notebook.  Fill in an idea for a word or image for each letter.

  2. Nice place you've got here! As to the writecize assignment, it's a great one. I did that last year, just brainstorming words that started with that letter, even if I didn't have anything in mind as far as what that eventual post might look like. It really helped me. I still have the list, so I'm going to be adding to it. I learned a lot during last year's challenge, so there are some changes that I'll be making this year. First off, I've chosen my theme, and it's an unlimited one, unique to me and my life (that I know of...pretty sure other bloggers where born in one country, and finished childhood in another but not with my stories) I'd tell you right here, except I'm working on a compelling title. The other change I'm making is pre-scheduling posts. I'm going to be doing a lot of the writing ahead of time, so that will eliminate a lot of the stress I felt last year!
