And with that, I am abandoning A-to-Z.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m quitting. I would feel worse about it, except it’s served it’s purpose, hasn’t it? I’ve generated twenty ideas, and I’ve already got five I’m excited to work on, plus three completely unrelated ideas I want to work on. Right now I’m putting it off because trying to come up with an idea and a vignette everyday is creatively stressing me out. I’m itching to work on the ones that appeal to me; I’m excited to go back and weed out my Top 5 (I have three clear frontrunners, but I need to figure out what to put in the final two slots).
As I said before, I am pretty confident this is my last foray into the A-to-Z Challenge, so in some ways I am slightly disappointed to not be seeing in through to the end, but — more than that — I am happy to have gotten some rich experience and inspiration out of it. I’ve got some art ideas that deviate from my rather formulaic portraits, and that in and of itself is exciting, but I’ve also got the start of some flash fiction/vignettes/short stories that I am eager to return to (I’m especially excited about my “I” entry).
Good luck with the final week of A-to-Z, everyone.
I’m eager to get to work on my next projects.
Stay safe and sane.
