Today is the first day of April which releases The Blogging From A to Z Challenge. I have been trying to get ready for a while now, but as per usual it's go time and I am still trying to get ready. I'm sitting down to write this post and am still not really sure exactly what I'm doing. I did find this really cool article about 10 Safe April Fools Pranks. I think they are hilarious, but best of all they won't hurt anyone. It's just good fun. I probably should have been using my time more productively, but sometimes you just need a break.
A is for Aspiring Author. I always wanted to be an author. I guess it runs in the family. When my dad passed away we found lots of books on how to become a writer among his things. Sadly we didn't come across anything he wrote himself. I am not even sure he ever got to the point of writing. It's a big scary leap! So here I am an aspiring author. I have put a lot of work into my story already and haven't even really started writing.
I am feeling a little overwhelmed because I signed up for so many things none of which I've completed in the past. However, I am also feeling excited because everything has come together in this month. Besides A to Z, I am jumping into Camp NaNo. It's also the first Wednesday of the month making it time for the Insecure Writers Support Group. There are so many amazingly supportive and knowledgeable people bouncing around in these challenges. It makes me hopeful that I will find the help and support I need to make it across the finish line, all the finish lines. Please drop me a supportive comment and let me know where you're visiting from, with a link if you can, so I can follow you back and cheer you on as well. We will get through this together and come out better and stronger because of it.
A is also for Attractive protagonist. Do you tend to write your protagonist with above average appearance? I actually can't recall reading a book where the protagonist was not handsome unless it was a major aspect of the plot. For example Beauty and the Beat, Hunchback of Notre Dame, A Spell For Chameleon and so on. All of mine tend to be smokin' hot and randy. Maybe it's because I like to read stories with a strong romance plot even if it's subordinate. I'm not sure if this is a problem or something that just is. What do you think?
PS: There actually was an awesome article about 10 Safe April Fools Pranks and I swear this one will not get you cheezy Eighties music. So click with confidence and happy April Fools.
