Any descent into madness begins with the letter A.
A-Z Challenge begins with pinging back to John Holton, and well, a list.
I am a pantser and SoCSer overall. I just sit down and write.
I hoard drafts and doors and eventually, mostly, I drag them to the surface and share them. Some have been sittin there for years. I could run out of material or feel a surge of courage, so I keep all of them just in cases. I also keep notebooks and comp books and journals and index cards and bookmarks and dogeared pages and slivers of paper — cause, writer.
But I’m not a good word planner.
I never considered the planning of words until my third unfinished novel, which I think explains their unfinished quality. For A-Z, because I struggle with numbers and time and since I still sing The Alphabet Song when I file, I do make a list. I’ll not veer from my One-Liner Wednesday and #ThursdayDoors, so I need to make sure I have material lined up for those days. And I do.
Fortunately LindaGHill will supply my Saturday prompts for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. What would this blog even be without Linda?
Anyway, this is my fourth year of A-Z-ing through April. I know now that I’ve built up a tolerance and I can take the madness. Can you, Dear Reader, take the madness? in small daily doses? for twenty-six days? Let’s find out.
