I did. Yes, I did. I did back-to-back month-long blog challenges.
And I’m glad! Glad, do you hear me? Glad! Glad! Glad!
— Thank you, Miss Crawford. You may go, now. —
I did the April A-to-Z challenge one year (maybe two), and I skipped it to do the Story A Day in May challenge, and this year I did both.
Well, that’s what I kept asking myself.
And here’s my answer:
- Because I blog every day anyway, and doing the challenges puts me in company with other people who blog every day.
- Because it’s interesting to see how other people approach and fulfil the challenge.
- Because the A to Z challenge gives me practice in writing short posts and themed posts.
- Because Story A Day forces me to sit down at the same time every day and knock out a story without second-guessing myself over every little detail.
Each one is like an extended writing exercise done out in public, with people you don’t even know cheering you on. It’s great!
Will I do them both again next year? No. No way. Absolutely not. Are you kidding me?
In other words, YES.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character accepts two challenges.
