Just wondering

I'm thinking about doing the A - Z Blog Challenge in April. I need to challenge myself to write more so my theme would be ridiculous paragraphs. What concerns me is my health. Do you think I would be forgiven if I missed visiting folks if I get sick?

Well Nancy, I've always found in th A - Z you only get visits if you visit others, and that's a big time commitment. Otherwise you're speaking to yourself. Everyone's in a mad frenzy and usually just click on random names when they see them in their rounds, at least I do that.

It's too much time commitment for me. I am concentrating on my writing and just finished my first ms and sent it off for assessment.

Perhaps you'd be better placed to work on a new story...

I've been waffling on this too. I need to work on my WIP, but I also need to attract some new peeps to my blog so they see my book. I've decided to do it, but if your health is an issue, it might not be worth it. Whatever you decide - good luck! :)

I'm skipping it, but the blogosphere is a forgiving place, so if the A-Z interests you, go for it. If it proves too much, I'm sure everyone will understand.

Denise is right - visiting is an important part of the Challenge. It's about making new friends. Missing a day and then catching up the next is fine, but if you think you'll be wiped out for a week, then it might be more than you can handle. Of course, you could always start it, and if you do fall sick, ask to be removed. That's a win either way. And what if you don't get sick?

Nick Wilford said...

Yeah, I kind of err on the side of giving it a go too. You're bound to make a few new friends even if you don't get to the end. So is your theme ridiculously long paragraphs? That sounds like fun!

I've had a sick grandson with me all week so now I too am sick. But I think my goal is new friends and just a to challenge myself so I might try at least the first week and go from there.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Nancy, just remember that if you do, you'll need a note from your doctor.

On a personal note, I don't participate solely because I don't have the time to comment everyday. As it is, I'm always playing catch-up. I can come up the the posts without much of a problem, but it's the commenting that would be a problem. I know that is a big part of it and I don't have an internet or cell phone connection half the time. It is a big commitment, that's for sure.

Hi Nancy ... I'd say yes - bearing in mind all the comments above ... because:

You'll have written 26 short stories around your paragraphs and you could use them in due course ..

So get writing! Give it a go .. at least do the 26 posts ... and as for visiting do what you can, when you can ..

Cheers and hope to see you there .. Hilary

Thanks Pat and Hilary, I'm still undecided.
