A to Z 2017 Theme reveal


The day has come for the A to Z April Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal. I'm sure you've all been waiting anxiously. Or you're panicking at the realization that April is fast approaching and you have a month's worth of posts to write. Relax. We have time. It's all good.

I've done short story starts for the past couple years and really enjoyed them. I love the interaction with you guys and seeing what word suggestions you'll leave each day. However, it takes a good deal of time to write each start each day along with visiting and commenting on participating blogs. This year, I've rather booked my writerly self with other projects and obligations so I'm limited on time. Which means, I need a new theme.

So I give you...Editing. Because guess what one of those things is that my writerly self is busy doing? Yes, editing. Currently: The Last God - along with likely another round on Trust and possibly on the additions to A Broken Race.

As I seem to have editing on the mind, it makes for a fairly easy topic to discuss for a month. I look forward to your comments, thoughts and suggestions.

A to Z is changing things up a bit this year, with no linky list, so if you will be participating, be sure to link to either the A to Z posts or facebook page each day to advertise your post.

  1. Editing is an educational topic always worth learning or reviewing so I'd say that will work well as a topic for A to Z. And if something has been on your mind I think A to Z is a good way to unleash that power.

    Have a great April! It will be interesting to see the outcome of a Challenge without a list.

    1. So far the process seems to be just as good without the list. We'll see how it goes once April hits. :)

    1. Funny how easy it is to find something else you 'should' be doing when editing is the alternative.

  14. Editing? Need, need, need. (See, right there I could probably cut two words!) Oh, I'll be back for this A to Z challenge. Especially D for Darlings, Cut 'Em.

    I'm writing my murder scene this year, using a different weapon (based on letter, of course) each day. Could be painful, but I'll recover.

    Have fun, and I'll be back!
