A to Z Preview


Hello readers,

As you know April is coming up in a few days and that also means the A to Z challenge! I've heard it before and always thought of it. This year... I'm participating in it for the first time! April is also national poetry month and Poetic Asides has a poem a day challenge.

So my theme... instead of doing something for each... I'm combining them!

Alphabet poetry!

Duh! That's the first reason I have this blog.

Check out the big list to see who else is participating in 'The Big Reveal' blog hop.

So if you're still here, last week on my blog and twitter I hinted about something, today I'm sharing the details. It has to do with the challenges. I've seen people publish a book of their A to Z stuff. I want to do that! I even already created a cover! I want to publish a poetry collection, and that might just happen later this year... woohoo!!

HI Fida! I'm also doing both Poetic Asides and A to Z Challenge along with at least 2 more daily challenges. I'm going with haibun for A to Z and with Alphabet poetry for Haiku Heights.

We'll both be busy poeming in April! What a fun way to spend the free time!

You know, Alphabet Poetry sounds like a great book to release. ;)

David Macaulay said...

Good theme poetry - can never read enough of that. Thanks for doing the Big Reveal

Dani said...

Yay for poetry! Sounds like you have a good grib on this challenge.

Mina Lobo said...

Creating non-fiction blog content for A to Z is challenging enough; creating poetry (or any fictional stuff) every day in April, practically, just blows my mind. Good luck with it! :-)

Very ingenious! Combining challenges makes it cost effective! good on you!

Good luck, Fida!
