April is Almost Here!!

Sweet April showers do spring May flowers.
Thomas Tusser

April is almost here, which means in my part of the world: rain. Well, at least it’s not snow, right? Right.

So, if you missed this post last week, in April I will be participating in a month long writing/blogging challenge called the April A to Z Challenge where:

ll began with my post from Saturday March 27, 2010 when I set forth a challenge to all bloggers for the month of April.   Can you post every day except Sundays during this month?  And to up the bar, can you blog thematically from A to Z?

       Most of the time if you subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days–one day for each letter of the alphabet.  When April 1st lands on a Sunday you begin on that day which will be the only Sunday you would post during that month’s challenge. 

        Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letterA, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.  It doesn’t even have to be a word–it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself.  The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.
So, I’m writing – or at least outlining – a chunk of my posts.  The other challenge that I’ve set up for myself is to write a post that is 500 words or longer.  I may be shooting for 1,000 words, but *shhh* keep that to yourself, okay?  It may also be a way to help clear out my draft folder as well.  No, you don’t have to keep that one to yourself. 🙂
