Thursday, or Thereabouts - March 29, 2018

And, I'm back!

Well, at least I think I am. At the very least, I'm going to give it a good try, really I am! Let me not dwell on my absence from these pages. If I allow that to happen, I will fall victim to yet another deluge of should's and ought's which will surely paralyze my write hand. Not happening. Not today.

A few weeks ago, a blogging friend very gently suggested that I consider signing up for the "Blogging from A to Z Challenge" the April 2018 edition. I was intrigued and my write hand has been seized by incessant twitchingever since. After some seven months of languishing on the sidelines, my storytelling muscles are truly in need of a rigorous exercise program. This challenge is just the ticket!

So here's the deal: 26 days of blogposts in the month of April thematically arranged by the letters of the alphabet. Sundays, with the exception of April 1 will be quiet days. While some writers taking part may choose to assign a further theme to their posts, I will just write what comes from the letter prompt alone. That will be more than enough exercise for my flabby writing muscles!

My thanks to Arti Jain, my fellow blogger from Doha, for encouraging me to join her in the Blogging Challenge, to pick up my pen and write. Please do take the time to check out Arti's blog where you will find inspiring and evocative words along with great photos.

And see, my writing has already begun! I'm pumped. And, I'll be back here on Sunday.

Wishing you baskets of Easter blessings...

...from the Easter fur-bunny in my house.

  3. If I do restart my blog, I might just cheat and copy that first paragraph

    1. Be my guest. I'm happy to know I'm not the only who can be paralyzed by 'shoulds' and 'oughts'.
