As usual, I was quite late to the party. It wasn’t last minute for a change, but still quite late. By the time I found out about the A to Z Challenge there was only about a month to go before it started.
Now I can say my armchair travel round-the-world trip from Auckland to Zanzibar was a success, but it took a while to get there.
“How hard can it be to write 26 posts, A to Z?” I asked myself. Well, turns out, a lot harder than I thought. What could I blog about that would give me 26 posts from A to Z? At first I tried to keep in line with the theme of this blog. Something study related, maybe? Maybe not. So, literature, then. It had to be literature. How about book reviews? Had I read books that correspond to every letter of the alphabet? I made a list and found it lacking. I could have scraped by, but some entries would have required more research than they were worth, plus the whole translation issue – it turned iffy before I had even started.
It’s Monday and that means it’s a new week with new goals to achieve. While I’ll still be blogging on here, I’ll definitely turn it down a notch or two now that A to Z is over.
As you’ll see, university is my priority and there are a lot of modules and assignments to get through. I’m actually trying to get ahead a little in order to shorten my overall study time.
The sun is coming out to play again, so hopefully I’ll be able to concentrate better with a fresh dose of natural vitamin D. My aim is to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine on my terrace for an hour per day and read my book(s). I still need to finish Devil in Amber.
