I’ve done the A-to-Challenge since 2017, when I started trying to blog in earnest. That first year, my theme was literally just All About Me, because frankly I had no idea what I wanted my blog to be, or what purpose it served. The following year, in 2018, I opted to combine Blogging A-to-Z with NaPoWriMo, and wrote a poem in a different form or style everyday (honestly, that was a lot of fun, and I’m still a fan of some of those poems). 2019 saw me trying to make this blog more about life with neurodivergence, so I wrote an A-to-Z about adult ADHD.
This year, armed with a little more knowledge about what the purpose of this blog is — rekindling and nurturing a creative self, however that manifests itself — and eager to push and challenge myself more, it took me a while to decide, but I’ve chosen a theme.
This year’s theme is: sketches inspired by song lyrics. I’ve decided to try to keep the lyrical choices, so much as I can, to songs by one of my favorite bands (The Decemberists), because their lyrics are, at least to me, amazingly evocative. I am hoping upon hope I can do them justice.
I am so looking forward to reading/seeing other people’s contributions this year!
