good news, everyone. #atozchallenge

[Wow, that image is way too bright and happy for me.]

No, that post title up there ^ is not sarcasm. I know that’s hard to believe since 90% of what comes out of me is sarcasm. But this time, I mean it. And hopefully you’ll think it’s good news, too.

Here it is. Brace yourselves… this is super exciting. (Now, *that* was sarcasm.)

After much deliberation, I have come up with a theme… so I *will* be participating in the A-to-Z challenge.

[Aside: Is it weird when I do *this* to emphasize? It’s old school… from back when the internet was born and everything was fixed-width UNIX terminal typeface. Showing my age. Please forget I said any of this.]

Where was I? Oh yes…

I missed the deadline to officially have my theme listed for the challenge, but that really doesn’t matter. I also missed ‘theme reveal day‘ which was, like, two weeks ago, but that doesn’t matter either. I could reveal it now… or I could make you wait. But if I make you wait, it might only set you up for a huge disappointment because, truly, it’s not that exciting. [Wow, am I overthinking this or what?]

I’ll just tell you. My theme is… letters. Not, like, a-b-c-d… but, like, mail. You know, letters? Those things people used to write to each other? Yeah. Those.

I had to come up with something easy because if I put too much pressure on myself, I will break. Hopefully this will work. I had to test it… so I’ve already written a few posts. I think I can get through the whole alphabet.

April 1st is Wednesday so… stay tuned.


p.s. — Oh crap. I’ve got to write a ‘p.s.’ for every letter. Hmm… Yes, I must. I’d better get on that.

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    That is good news! I’m very excited to read your letters. 😀

    Did you sign up for the master list for A to Z? That’s open until April 5th.

    Also, I use *this* for emphasis, too, and it annoys me when some programs make it bold. I wanted my asterisks dang it!

    Good news! Looking forward to your posts. And I did not know *this* was old school. I might possibly be too old even for that! Will be a good distraction, I can’t seem to get myself motivated to write anything these days. 😬

    • Aww… thanks. I really appreciate how much people want me to do this. It helps motivate me. As you know, I seem to need constant encouragement. And… oh crap, tomorrow is April 1st. I better stop editing my A post and get it scheduled… ♥
