So here's the truth. I wasn't planning on participating in the challenge this year. I'm trying to organize my life around my writing and I'm discovering there just are not enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. And then, this morning happened.
All of a sudden the thought was in my head. Circling around all the other thoughts of what's on today's agenda and the new book I'm writing, there it was. Louder than the rest. Flashing. In neon colors.
You have to do the blog challenge. Here's your theme.
Before you start advising me to see a neurologist, or have a cat scan let me assure you, these flashing neon words in my mind are a common occurance. I really don't want to freak out the entirity of the medical profession, so let's just keep that between us, okay?
I'll admit. I yelled a profanity or two. I have a friend staying with me. She heard me from the other room and asked, "What's wrong?!"
"I'm doing the A to Z challenge."
Well, let me tell you, when I explained what the challenge is, I could see in her expression that she couldn't fathom at all why the profanities were spewing. I guess she thought I broke a toe or something.
Anyway, I sat down to construct my topic list and it only took about 30 minutes to populate the whole alphabet. So, yep, I'm gonna do it, and talked two friends into doing it too. I bet by now, you are on the edge of your seat and growing tired of the banter. You want to know what the theme is this year, don't you?
Last year, I let characters from my Suspense series, Providence in Ecuador write the blog. But this year I am writing a new series. A fantasy series about witches. No, not broomstick riding, Grimoire toting witches. Real witches. So this year's A to Z challenge theme is A Goddess Glossary.
Come back in April to hear more about our main character Phoebe, a burdgeoning author, who discovers things about herself, she never would have imagined. Truth is mightily stranger than fiction. I might slip a few nuggets in from the new series called Paisley Cove.
See you next week!
Loving life in Cuenca!
