Only Half Mad, Apparently...


Pretty much...
So know how I'm meant to be madly scripting this month... then revising? I'm not really doing all that. I lost speed when that contest closed the same day it opened and have MOSTLY just been reading a lot and being a crazy squee fangirl for all the good TV that is coming up soon. But now that we've reached mid-month, it is time to kick it back in gear, methinks... I pledge henceforth to an hour a day, focused.

In BETTER disciplined news, my exercise buddy and I started the Couch to 5K program last week—did our first three days, then on top of that had an hour power walk on Saturday, so I am on track to being active again.


But the REAL madness is prep for Blogging A to Z... are you guys on board? I didn't do it last year and I think it cursed me as a blogger. I haven't been able to say anything interesting since, so maybe participating will get me back in line. It will certainly get me back in practice at writing daily when I may not have much to say...

My plan is to Drabble... 100 words for each letter (with exception of Q when I am asking Alex a few QUESTIONS for his book release)..


So that's all I got today... I could make an effort and write some more nonsense, but since I've just pledged to write nonsense almost every day next month, I think I will hold off...

I know those who don't participate in the Challenge see a dip in April. Glad you're on board this year and hope it kicks your blog back into gear. Looking forward to the questions!

Good luck with the Drabbles. I'm not participating with my own blog, but the IWSG is posting next month.

I can relate to that cartoon! I'm trying to revise this month too. There seem to be more non-protective days than productive days.:(

If one little thing gets in my way, I trip and nearly fall instead of stepping over it and proceeding. I'm talking about writing, but as I think about it, I trip in real life too.

I'm going through A to Z madness, blog tour prep madness, and editing madness. Aaaah! lol

Sarah Ahiers said...

I'm just stumbling around too, not getting the amount of work done i need to get done. It's stressing me out. And yet, here i am, commenting on blogs...

Andrew Leon said...

No atoz for me this year.

Helena said...

I haven't been writing much either -- instead my story is just piling up in my head. If I don't write some notes tonight I'll probably have a literary stroke and forget everything I ever knew.

Jan Morrison said...

I think I will do the A to Zed - I did it last year and have for several and it may be the only blogging I stay true to! My discipline has fallen completely to bits in every area of my life. Don't know why and it is making me crazy. ah well...back to the kaizen method.

Thrilled to hear that you are with us for A to Z. The Challenge will have a greater quality with your presence.

It's weird, but I've not been very into TV until the past couple years and now it seems all sorts of good sounding shows seem to be coming out. I could probably watch prime time every night, but I must resist. I must! Or I won't get anything done.

I hate revisions. I never want to cut anything.

Well, one good thing is that nonsense can take us almost anywhere! Should be an interesting ride.

Is it bad that I had to look up what "drabble" meant? Sounds great! Plus, I've learned something new today.

Sharon Marie Himsl said...

Good luck with the revision. I'll stop back for some of that "Drabble."

I'm doing Inventions by Women.

Michelle Wallace said...

The very FIRST fiction pieces that I wrote were drabbles.
I love drabbles. They encourage tight, lean writing.
I'll pop by to check yours out!
See you around on the A to Z circuit!

Melissa Sugar said...

Short drabbles should be fun and I'm looking forward to reading your Q & A with Alex. That's a clever use of the letter Q. I didn't participate last year either and I definitely felt cursed.

Congrats to your enthusiasm and dedication to the "From Couch to 5K challenge." You are on a roll. Spring is here and I need some motivation to start waking or running .

See you in April.
