The A-Z Challenge Fast Approaches: An overview of the topics I will cover


The A-Z Challenge commences on April 1st. This is my first year doing this challenge so I'm not really sure what to expect, but I wanted to participate anyway. Not only will it give me some accountability to write on this blog, but I hope to discover other new blogs.

Seeing that this blog is devoted to the writing and editing process, this will be the primary focus of my A-Z blog topics. Here is an overview of what to expect:

A - Analyzing the First Draft
B - Back Story
C - Characterization
D - Description
E - Exposition
F - Flashbacks
G - Grammar
H - "Holy Crap! This writing thing is too hard!"
I - Ideas
J - Journals
K - Knockout (in terms of a great manuscript)
L - Lead characters
M - Metaphors vs Similes
N - Never overlook your Middles
O - Outlining
P - Point of View
Q - Quest of the Character
R - Revision Checklist
S - Semicolon
T - Tone
U - Utilizing books to improve your writing
V - Voice
W - Writers' groups
X - X-Change e-magazine
Y - Your self-confidence as a writer
Z - Zoloft: Depression and Writing

Hope you'll visit my blog to read about these topics in the month of April. Good luck to everyone taking the challenge!
