April promises to be Fun !

Starting tomorrow, I am trying out something totally new and daring. Something that I have tried only once before and failed miserably while doing it. I wasn't planning to get sucked into doing something like this again but then this lovely lady here posted on FB about it and I made the mistake of telling her how tempting it sounded. So very gently, very unobtrusively, without me noticing at all, she managed to entice me into it. And to ensure that I don’t back out, she went ahead and took the pain of making this FB page to encourage and motivate us ! 

As most of you might have guessed, I am talking about the Blogging from A to Z April challenge where you not only blog every day of the month but blog using the alphabet of the day. So basically you blog on 1st April with a letter A and on 2nd with letter B and so on. 

The main reason why I took up this up was because I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to stretch myself fully in exploring my creative as well as time management skills. For April is going to be busy month with travel planned in the last week and almost all weekends devoted to something or the other. Add to that a busy work schedule. But I badly need the discipline of writing regularly to ensure that my creative skills remain in tip top condition. 

Most of us have started planning well in advance for this challenge by scheduling posts and having brain storming sessions on different themes for different alphabets. And now that I have waxed long enough about the importance of time management and using your writing skills regularly, how much planning have I done for this you might ask. 

Well you see I have a secret card up my sleeve. Something that always works like magic to get my creative juices flowing. And that thing is called last minute panic !

Wish me luck !
