Breaking News!! My Challenge Reveals

 

 

I’ve got it!!! I know what my theme will be for my Blogging A to Z Challenge! I am going to combine my two challenges!!!

Yes, I am doing TWO challenges for April. I am doing the Blogging A to Z challenge with CJ. She did it last year and it was a blast reading her posts. Especially since blogging every day is a challenge in itself for her. So, I’m happy to see her joining it again this year.

I was supposed to be doing PoMoSco which is Poetry Month Scouts from The Found Poetry Review but I never received a confirmation email or anything from them. And after spending a very long time going through my spam folder, I can guarantee there is nothing there. There was a handbook I needed to receive in the email to know what I needed to do and how to prep. Since I didn’t receive it, I am going to resign from that challenge. I’m guessing that I just got lost among all the sign-ups. I did sign up really early, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was missed.

Instead, I have joined NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month), per CJ’s suggestion. Thirty poems in thirty days. And guess what??? My friend, Rod E. Kok (pronounced Coke), is participating as well. Oh Lizzi!!! You should join, too! In fact, anyone who writes poetry and wants a challenge should join. It starts tomorrow so hurry up and join with me. I can promise a lot of interesting words and meeting some fantastic new friends if you do.

So, what’s my big theme reveal? I’m going to use the prompt from NaPoWriMo (possibly, that’s going to be a daily choice), and write a poem using the Blogging A to Z rules of using a letter from the alphabet every day. For example: whatever the prompt is for the poetry challenge I will attempt to combine it and something using the letter for the day from Blogging A to Z. Yeah, I know…I’m insane. Blogging A to Z does not write on Sundays so on those days you’ll only see whatever poem I write for the daily prompt at NaPoWriMo. This is going to be interesting. Stay tuned. You might actually get to see me freak the frakk out.

There ya go! What do you think? Can I pull this off or what?

Hope your having a great Tuesday. And by the way, check out CJ’s post about challenges over at Twisted Writers!

Jesi Kay
Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

  1. I fink yer BONKERS! I did OctPoWriMo….dunno if I’d keep up with another, but maybe…maybe…I might do this a different way. We shall see. I could do with poeming some stuff out of me.

    1. Thank you. I’d love to be able to post my first one but my host server seems to be experiencing some issues today and I can’t log in to my blog. It’s definitely Wednesday. LOL

  2. Hey finally got it…..the link thru which you approached my site itself is misleading….so went back to search 🙂
    Well i am doing both challenges too…hurray!!!
    Happy writing 🙂
    See you around

    1. Yay! Sorry about the link. Not sure what was going on there. Glad you found me though. At least I’m not the only insane one doing both challenges. 🙂
      It’ll be fun. (famous last words)
