Today please welcome Michelle Wallace, one of Alex J. Cavanagh's minions, as our guest. I ran across this post in my travels and thought it might inspire you, too. Take it away, Michelle!
Some of you may remember it - I used it as a promo post for the 2012 challenge.
I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to resurrect it and share it again...
A to Z Story in A to Z Style
Brains behind this
Creative cool challenge;
Demanding, dazzling yet different;
Entertaining and energizing every blogger,
For a period of 26 days,
Get ready for the ultimate blogging challenge.
Hype yourself – get into the swing of things.
Infectious atmosphere, incredible feeling, impossible to put into words.
Jubilation, an upbeat spirit prevails and spreads throughout the blogosphere.
Keep in contact – re-connect with bloggy buddies from last years challenge.
Love affair of an entirely different nature (lovestruck and confused? click here)
Midway – made it… the halfway point – not that bad after all, is it?
Natural situation that novices need help along the way – experienced bloggers nurture nervous newbies
Oodles of oomph required – old bloggers maintain an optimistic outlook or others may opt out
Phew! Pressure's on… big time. Plod along at your own pace. Perseverance needed. Push yourself forward.
Quirky, quaint and for some the "quintessential letter of dread" – may cause bloggers to quiver and quake.
Revitalisation, rejuvenation, re-energising and recharging of dying batteries may be required at this point – remember you're not alone…
System overload… out of sync… saturation point almost reached… senses spinning as you struggle to sustain the systematic flow.
Thank goodness… can see the end in sight. The turbulent, tumultuous, torturous journey almost over! Almost time to say - toodles.
Unbelievable – the undeniable atmosphere of unity! Lots of bloggers upbeat – also a sense of urgency as the last five letters loom.
Va-va-voom! Versatility and variation is the name of the game as the bloggers prepare for the end – full of verve and vigour.
What do I say now? Words fail me… sending well-wishes to all bloggers participating – if you made it this far, three more posts…
X stands for x-ceptional, x-otic, x-factor, x-files, xtreme, x-hale, x-rated, xerox – the letter that most bloggers have a hard time getting to grips with.
You know that I've run out of things to say. Yes, enough yada-yada and blah-blah-blah… you'll understand when you get to the Y-post in April.
Zis is zee end. No more left. Zip… zilch… zero… and there is no way that I'm gonna make 26 words for the Z-post… I tried.
Michelle blogs at Writer in Transit. Be sure to pay her a visit! It's always a good time over there.
