Our guest today is Lynn Rush who blogs at Catch the Rush. The 2012 Challenge will be a first for her but she's ready to go. In this post she explains her strategy.
Hey there, everyone. Lynn Rush here.
I’ve never participated in an A to Z challenge, but I tell ya, it sounds SUPER FUN!
When I saw a blogging/writing friend of mine participate in this last year, I was like, “Holy Cow, how do they think of something to write every day like that?”
That was back when I was posting only four to five days a week, and the thought of adding a couple of days kind of freaked me out.
But deep down, it must have inspired me, because I started posting daily shortly after.
I’m often asked how I think of topics for blogging seven days a week. The main thing is: Themes.
I have Movie Quotes, This Writer’s Journey, Throwback Thursday, Photos (sunsets, angels, etc) and we occasionally do a Debate This discussion and Cinema Sound Off. The rest of the days I just do whatever comes to mind.
So, when I decided to jump into the A to Z blog adventure, I decided I’d do something with music. Besides movies, music is WAY up there on the scale of things that motivate & inspire me, so what better topic to blog about?
Writing about things I love is fun. I think that’s really important, because if not, then blogging is more like a chore than an exciting, interactive adventure with your readers.
Now, I have to admit, I might sneak in a few non-music related posts since my next novel is releasing May 1st (I kind of need to mention that, right? LOL) but other than that, I’m stoked to write about music each and every day of this awesome blog event. I’ve even started finding musicians to feature.
X and Z…those will be a bit challenging, but I already have a few ideas! **LOL**
What are some of the things you guys are thinking of writing about during your A to Z adventure?
