If you take a peek at the latest posts by those participating in the A to Z Challenge, you’ll see a lot of “F” posts today. As I mentioned, yes, I am woefully behind.
But Joe gave me some great advice yesterday – he suggested doing a series of small posts to get right back in the game. I liked the sound of that!
C is for Catch-up
And then I thought … well, I’m on C, right? So why not a Catch-up post?
Why not indeed? So here we go!
D is for Daughter
My daughter recently produced, directed and filmed this music video for friends of hers. It looks so professional!
E is for Early Rising
I’ve had a great deal of success setting out intentions in this blog. So I thought I’d try out a new intention. After those crazy months of heavy deadlines just a few months ago, my system really fell out of sync. I was going to bed at 3 and 4 in the morning, and getting up at 10 or 11.
I am a bit of a night owl, but I’ve discovered that when I get an earlier start to my day, not only do I feel more productive – I think I actually AM more productive. (Anyone else feel this way too?)
So I’m going to set an intention here to start getting back into the rhythm of early rising again. Well … earlier rising, I guess I should call it, since to me, that means 8:30 am or thereabouts!
F is for Fun
And finally, I’m back on track for today. And I’m going to cheat a little bit. I really enjoyed writing that little scene that I posted as my “B” post, and I’d like to try doing more of these as I play the A to Z Challenge this month. The only thing is, I now know that it’s easiest for me to pull out my writing prompts and let my subconscious work on things, and for that, I need time.
So I’m going to try just pulling out new prompt cards at the end of each day’s post, to prepare me for the following day.
And since I had such fun writing from the prompts yesterday, I think drawing my prompt cards right now should qualify as fun!
So here are the prompt cards and the one archetype card I’m going to be using in my next A to Z Challenge post (G is for …), which I will be posting on Monday (I’m taking a hiatus from A to Z posts on the weekends).
1. yelling for help
(Yes, this was the order in which I pulled the cards … )
From the archetype deck:
Implies the unknown: ignorance or desperation; evil
I’m getting the same “You’ve got to be kidding me!” reaction I felt when I drew the last set of prompt and archetype cards.
This will be interesting …
