A to Z Hurried

Welcome to the 2014  A to Z Challenge. My theme for this year is why I shouldn't be participating. Thank you to David for writing the post that got the voices in my head working against me.

Hurried. Yes, these posts are meant to generally be short since we're also spending time visiting our fellow bloggers and no one wants to read through a four screen-long post, but it's hard finding enough meat to fill a post without it coming off as total fluff when you just don't have time. It hardly seems fair to those who put in the time to write a meaningful post, musing on the letter of the day in their chosen theme.

Last year I spent a good amount of time pouring over my entire body of work to find characters with names beginning with the letter for each day. This year, something that ambitious is not possible. Heck, I'm lucky if I find time to have lunch most days. Speaking of which, I need to get back to work and the hundred other things I need to do yet today.


  1. What amazes me is how few of the A to Z blogs I've been visiting have actually been short. Who has time to write a long blog post each day? I've actually clicked away without reading a few because they were just far too long!

    1. I have no idea who has the time for that. I've written a few long ones, but they take awhile and it's not something I do that often. Thanks for stopping by each day. :)

  2. As we get further into the challenge, I'm feeling more and more harried, and some of my posts might start showing it soon.

  3. Way too many of the A-Z blogs are much too I don't comment on as many as I could if they were shorter (and I could read more). Sigh....maybe next year.
