As I indicated at the end of January, in this post, I have signed up to take part in the April A-Z Blogging Challenge again. The 372 of us that had signed up then have grown into over 1500!!
Here I am the day before the challenge starts with 26 blank blog posts scheduled so I best get thinking about what I’m going to write in them.
I am planning to stick to topics relating to my work in progress – A YA Novel – ‘Training Time’. I don’t want to give too much away so the posts will be relatively short. But I hope you find them interesting.
I’ve just sent the first chapter and synopsis into a competition and I’m looking forward to picking this back up again and adding to the 60,000 words I stalled at in November.
I’m also looking forward to reading some new blogs (sorry don’t think I’m going to be able to manage to visit all 1500+) as well as those of my Besties taking part in the challenge again. Good Luck everyone. Happy Alphabet Blogging.
Knocked a couple of films off my Bucket List in the last couple of weeks.
Saw The Hunger Games on opening night last Friday. Very good adaptation, I really liked all of the characters and Peeta had the right amount of charm that I’d felt from him in the books. I hope we get to see a bit more of Haymitch in the next film, I thought Woody played it well. Katniss was spunky and human – and the scene with Rue would have been heartbreaking was I not annoyed with the younger members of the audience who seemed to be laughing. Grrr. Speaking of Grrr I have been disgusted to read of the racism online towards the actors that played Rue and Thresh. Get. Over. It.
I also finally managed to see Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Having not enjoyed the films as much as I had hoped to I actually really enjoyed this one, best yet. And I’m still team Jacob despite the honeymoon scenes.
A week Monday I should be able to mark another thing off my Bucket List – on a roll.
