A-Z Creativity

In keeping with Heather's post about the 2016 Blogging From A-Z Challenge, I'm beginning to turn over ideas in my mind as to what I want to write about for next year's event. I haven't settled on what I want to do yet, but you can be sure I'll be putting more thought into it as I want to do something unique (as do we all, right?).

Over the years, a few enterprising and industrious writers have compiled their April posts and published same, mostly in fiction format. Now, it that's not being creative, I don't know what is.

I've had ambitions of doing the same for years, but haven't done anything about those posts. Most of the material relates to writing and would help others in some way, but as they say, 'the road to hell is paved with good intentions'. I still haven't removed the material from my blog, but I do have them in individual files.

Do you have anything special you're turning over in your mind? If so, have you started plotting yet? I don't know about you, but I've got my thinking cap on.


Have fun planning when you get there!

  1. Putting all that advice you shared into a book format is a great idea! Just think how many people you can help out?!

    I don't think I'll be able to do the A-Z this year for the same reason I couldn't last year. I do taxes and that's my busiest time. It wouldn't be fair to those participating if I had to limit how many people I visited. Boo! Hiss! :)

  4. Some people are really creative with their A to Z posts and I see how they could make them into publications. I'm thinking and thinking.....

  6. Last years A to Z theme was a huge amount of work and visitor numbers were very low so I might give it a miss this year and go off and do something a bit alternative.

  9. This will be my first A-Z challenge, and I think I will use the theme I had devised for last year... but which I was not able to implement as I thought of it halfway through the challenge and I was just launching the blog (http://bookschatter.blogspot.co.uk)!!! Touch wood, I will be able to do it this year, combining information about two of my favourite activities :-)

  10. 2015 was my first challenge. I loved it and will be back in 2016. Not sure about theme but giving it much thought. I will probably also join in with my second blog which will mean that I will need to be more prepared to avoid the last minute rush-posting. Enjoyed reading this post. Thanks

  13. I just want to write. No particular genre though I do enjoy songwriting a lot. I just want to enhance my skills. Learn from reading others and write more and more. Don't ever stop. Writing posts about writing us very helpful; especially to me.mthanks.
