A to Z

I wasn't planning on having a theme for the A through Z Challenge, which starts this Sunday.

I was going to wing it and come up with something spur of the moment to write everyday.  But then as I thought more about it... that might turn out to be a little hard.  And it's already a bit daunting to remember that I'm going to blog everyday in April.

So I came up with a plan. It's quite cheesy and dorky, but that fits my personality perfectly!

I sat down with a dictionary, yeah the big, fits in your lap kind. I know many of you probably don't remember paper dictionaries anymore. It's so easy to just type the word you're looking for into Google, and wham-shebam, there's your definition.  But my quest was a bit more daunting. I was looking for words, not just definitions. Since each day on the blog is devoted to a different letter in the alphabet, I thought it would be fun to pick a random word to go with each letter and that is the word that will inspire my blog post that day.  It will at least give me something to write in the title of the post!

And it was so much fun! No really, it was fun to skim through the pages of a letter and plunk my finger down at a random time to choose a word. There are 4 words on my list that I'd never heard before, so score 1 for new vocabulary! 5 of them are really wacky and funky and I already have hilarious posts writing themselves in my head. 10 of them are pretty simple, and that means they will be challenging to write about, but I'm excited about the challenge! I also learned that the letters C, P and S have the most words in the dictionary, who knew!

So starting Sunday, come to my blog everyday to learn a new word, or learn what crazy thing it inspires me to write about!

I thought about posting the list of words here beforehand, but I think it will be more exciting if there's some anticipation.

I will give you a teaser for Sunday though.... April 1st is the letter A, and the word my finger landed on has 12 letters and begins with AN...  Can you guess what it will be?


  1. Cool theme! Look forward to your posts.
    PS: you might want to turn off the WV to see a spike in A-Z comments. I have turned them off, with no adverse effects.
