A to Z April Blogging Challenge

 





I have to admit it.  I am a big fan of Lee at Tossing It Out  I greatly enjoy his posts and admire his leadership as a blogger.  Lee and other wonderful blogging buddies have an interesting and fun project: the A to Z April Challenge , which I finally decided to join. 


How does the Challenge work?


The premise of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge is to post something on your blog every day in April except for Sundays.  In doing this you will have 26 blog posts--one for each letter of the alphabet.   Each day you will theme your post according to a letter of the alphabet.


You will only be limited by your own imagination in this challenge.  There is an unlimited universe of possibilities.  You can post essays, short pieces of fiction, poetry, recipes, travel sketches, or anything else you would like to write about.  You don't have to be a writer to do this.  You can post photos, including samples of your own art or craftwork.    Everyone who blogs can post from A to Z.


My Challenge 


My challenge is to post a 50-word story every day.  For the most, they will be nursing-home inspired stories.   


I hope you enjoy them.

That sounds interesting! Just won't have the time to do that - unless I take my alphabet psalm and do a re-run, printing a verse per day instead of what I've done and posted the whole poem recently. Looking forward to your stories! Have fun!

Well, I'm sure going to get over here as much as I can. I love your stories. Although try not to make me cry so much.

I am sure I will enjoy your stories. I may have to think about joining something like this. It seems like I will be busy. I will think that I am lucky if I can get time to write my blog regularly. Good Luck to you.

Doris, thank you for the kind words. I am so happy that you have decided to join us. The 50 words sounds like an excellent plan. Maybe I should try to get some of my remaining posts down to that--or at least 150 words.

Sounds fun! I'm a new follower! I post kindergarten stories, so we are at the opposite ends of the spectrum!

Doris,

This sounds like an interesting challenge, but I think I'll pass on this. I think that I post too many blogs as it is by posting 3 times a day, ha!

Well, have fun with the challenge. I look forward to reading some of your 50 word stories. :)
