…is exactly what my dad always says 🙂

So Hi…how are you?…what have you all been up to? Me? Cooking, baking, tidying, walking Alb, laundry, faffing, reading, playing The Sims (LOVE that game!) and NOT writing *sighs*

Writers block? Sort of. Writers exhaustion? More likely lol…I’ve hardly written a thing (fiction wise) since Nano last November and thats scary 😦

And now, things are beginning to pile up… I still need to fiddle with Sorrento Sunrise for the RNA submission and i have 2 short stories i need to work on for an anthology thats being put together by my writing group. Im feeling totally uninspired to do any of that, because i have a little spark in my stomach…a small flicker of something thats telling me the urge to write is coming back, but i need to catch it. If i ignore it (which would be very easy to do) it will disappear and possibly not return for months.

Soooooo….ive decided to join in with the A-Z Challenge 🙂 And this year it will be totally fiction lol.


loved doing the characters back in 2012, so this year i’ll be posting a piece of fiction, every day, prompted by a word beginning with that particular days letter of the alphabet. Ive already got my words (i used an online random word generator) and some ideas are starting to form for A & B lol….but i haven’t written anything, it will be done live, daily, thats the point…to get my brain working on a daily basis.

So i guess i’ll see you, back here, bright and breezy on the 1st of April…exciting!

Are you taking part in the A-Z Blogging Challenge this year?

  1. Vikki, it’s good to see your thoughts are turning back to writing. Looking forward to hearing more from you through the month of April. I’m not sure I’m up to the A-Z challenge, considering I’ve only posted once since September…


      • In my case? I admin for a fiction writers group of 4,000+ members, and am currently organizing a massive anthology project, plus helping another person with their similar project, haha… I’m doing too much “admin”, “under the hood” stuff to be able to focus on writing…. Luckily I signed up for a charity anthology, so I started writing for that today.

        Haha. (“Excuses, excuses…” says the Muse.)


      • Thank you! It’ll be better come April, haha…. for the last three years, I’ve worked Mon-Sat (I’m a teacher), so I had even less free time, but come April, I’ll finally have Tuesdays off… and the house to myself. So it’ll be quality quiet time to get some writing done. 🙂

        Good luck to you too! You can do it. Sometimes we just have to scrape the crust off and power through.


  2. Lovely to hear from you again – and you are not alone in losing the writing mojo. Why, I even took most of January and February off (I work freelance, so I cut down seriously on gigs) to focus on my writing… But the writing wouldn’t allow itself to be focused upon. Well done for getting yourself motivated with the AtoZ challenge – have to admit, that feels completely beyond me at the moment, but maybe next year…


  3. Hey Vikki,
    Glad you’ve found a way to get your back in touch with your writing mojo! I’ve been very lax of late with blogging but have some fantastic new content to add now so I’ll be starting it up again shortly, right after my book hits the virtual shelves next week.
    Looking forward to reading your posts throughout next month…
    Liz xx


  4. Totally understand the not writing, I’ve got that way at the moment with my blog, keep looking at it but nothing seems to surface. Catch that spark quickly, looking forward to seeing what fiction comes this way in April 😀


  5. Vicki, I’ve missed you. So excited to see your blog pop up in my feed. I hope things are going well. Happy you are doing A to Z. Ambitious theme. Can’t wait to read it. I’ll be blogging about my debut, which is coming out May 1st (fingers crossed) Seriously happy to see you back. 🙂


  6. Yay, you’re back!
    And YES, I’m doing the A-Z Challenge this year. 🙂 I’m writing my posts ahead of time because I think posting and visiting other blogs at the same time would kill me! This IS a challenge. 😉
    I can’t wait to read your A to Z random stories!


    • Hi Kirsten 🙂

      Awwwww, thanks honey. Im going to set myself a limit of reading 10 blogs a day, so theres no way i’ll be able to visit every single blog *sighs* I did the first year, but its getting so HUGE now 😦

      Good luck honey…will stop by 🙂



  7. Welcome back, honey! I take my hat off to you–from exhausted writer to enthusiastic A2Z blogger, wow! Good luck, and I’ll look forward to reading your posts again. Rock on, Vikki!
