Hold me...



Just to prove how much of a masochist I am, I finally broke and decided to sign up for the A-Z Challenge.  Yeah, I'm nuts.  I have a full-time job, a 3 year-old daughter who is turning my hair grey, and a little guy on the verge of crawling (maybe even walking) in the next few weeks, a yearbook to complete, a book to finish editing and change over from 3rd person POV to 1st, and I signed up for something like this. 

Hold me!

But, it'll be good for me.  Once I figure out a theme, it will be easier.

In other news, I have to give one more shout out to WIP: THE MOVIE blogfest hosted by Kyra at Write Here, Write Now and Rachel at Writing on the Wall.

It was a blast participating in the challenge, and wonderful getting to know everyone's characters, theme-songs, and movies. 

I also wanted to give an extra shout-out to Kyra because I was her winner.  Yay!  It was a great surprise to get to work and find that out this morning.

    1. Can hot guys without shirts be a theme? Lol. Probably not what they had in mind for the challenge.

    1. Thanks, and I'll keep my eyes out for your posts. It should be a challenge, indeed, to come up with 26 things, but I'm determined to do it.

  4. Good luck with the A-Z. April is always really busy for me, so I'm also being a bit of idiot in participating. Still, like you said, it will be good for me.

  7. It's good to stay busy, though a three-year-old will fill that bill nicely...

    1. Yeah, she's driving me a little batty. I think that's why evolution has made them so cute - so you don't kill them.

    1. Welcome! I don't have an idea, yet, although it may be connected to books I've read or books I wanna read.

  14. I decided the A to Z challenge is too much for me! I'm amazed at how many are doing it though. Good luck.

    I'm new to your blog, but I love the Thursday 13 posts and will be back.

  15. Welcome and thanks! I'll keep an eye out for you!

  16. Jaycee, hot guys without shirts would make for an entertaining theme for the A to Z Challenge. At least you can find joy in knowing that no other participant is likely to have the same theme that you are blogging on! So, consider that if you are looking for a theme that is quick and easy.

    You could also try to write about authors from Tucson, but then again, you'd have to find 26 of them that coincide with the alphabet....maybe you could do Tucson YA Fiction books or blog about different areas of Tucson that remind you of a novel that you once read in your lifetime.

    If all else fails, check out the A to Z Videos that I submitted for the A to Z Video Challenge....they are FULL of blogging prompts that help get your idea engine going, which can make it easier to find a theme that you could work around your schedule.

    1. Thanks for the ideas and for stopping by, Nicole. I'm still going back and forth on some ideas, although I have a specific theme chosen for Saturdays that will be different than others.

  17. Hey Jaycee,
    I specialize in holding ;-) Not kidding. Touch is my love language. Posted on that at some point at my blog (Life is Good) and I have a search gadget, so I'm pretty sure you could find it. Since you've got nothing else going on in your life right now...(Sarcasm is my super-power and smart-ass is my side-kick, just warning you!)
    Seriously though, welcome aboard the challenge. Make it your own. If you stay true to who you are on any given post, then just do that for 26 days and you'll be fine! This is my second year, and being a co-host has been SUCH fun. I hope they ask me back next year. I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog as I'm your new follower.
