What is it? It’s a word that means something like “totally crazy chick who is always doing extreme things like this A-Z blog challenge thing.”
I’ve always been a bit inclined to be overly ambitious. In school, I’d get a new PACE (workbook like thing that was 1/12 my year’s work in a subject) and I’d decide to get it done over the weekend even though it had forty-three pages. Yeah. And I’d do it too. Just because I could.
When a friend pointed out NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) to me, I was intrigued. Could I write fifty thousand (50,000 words!!!) in thirty days? It seemed impossible. Then I did the math. 1,667 words per day. I did that most days–just not on one book. I tend to be ADD with my writing as my friends can well attest.
“Ok, so you know how Chessie got in that car accident?”
“Wait, I thought we were talking about Alexa?”
“We were; now we’re talking about Chessie. I just had a great idea.”
And so it goes.
Well, the other day I found out that there is another contest. Get this– a novel in three days. THREE DAYS. Yes, suddenly I want to move to a hotel room for Labor Day weekend and see if I can do it. Then again, it looks like they shoot for about 100 pages. That’s pretty simple stuff, really, but still. Why not?
So, when I saw A-Z of blogging, well… I had to do it. I know, what’s so ambitious about writing a couple hundred words 30 times in a row on a blog? Right? Um, I’ll tell you. I’m doing it over at Paradoxology too. That’s what is ambitious for me. TWO? Am I nuts? Yep. Yes I am.
So, I hope you’ll come around this month. I may even have a few giveaways to keep things interesting! So, stop in, say howdy, you never know when that howdy will get you a book, or a gift card, or just a “thanks a lot for stopping by.”
