Z to A, in 26 Days.. & The Ghoul’s Gala

I’ve completed 900 posts just before this post. And I’m as usual, always in love with writing. I think it was my April that was most memorable, with a post corresponding to each letter of the alphabet written all month… So today, when I saw the calendar, I noticed that the month of November has 26 days, excluding Sundays. So I’ve decided each day, beginning NOVEMBER 1st, excluding Sundays, I’m going to write a post, themes corresponding to each letter of the alphabet, this time in reverse, from Z to A. I’m calling it the Z to A in 26 Days Challenge.

I’m inviting any blogger interested to take part in the challenge to try their hand at it. They can share their links as a comment in the corresponding posts and read other participating bloggers too. It’s just a writing challenge, so no limitations on the genre. Haikus, 55 fictions or long stories.. anything is fine. If anyone partaking in the challenge along with me, do mention it in the comment here. If many, I’ll fashion a simple badge for the challenge, to place along with your post!

Now, to such a month long party, I’m also planning a pre-party. With October 31st being a Sunday, and also Halloween, I’m hosting a costume party, the Ghoul’s Gala here at I Rhyme Without Reason. It’s an open house party again, all you’ve to do to enter is write a Halloween party post in your blog, get yourself a costume, and link back to the Ghoul’s Gala page on October 31st and you can join and visit other blog houses for trick or treating! The blog, as you’d have noticed, has already been themed for Halloween, so looking forward to seeing you all at the Gala.

Update on the Gala will be given on 29th October again. I’ll try to get in a Mr.Linky if possible, else the comments section can serve the purpose, since URLs are automatically linked. You can stop by at the Gala even if you’re not wanting to be part of the Z to A in 26 Days Challenge. All welcome!

Cheers and spooks,
Yours, the Amateur Poet,

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

    Congrats on your 900 posts 🙂

  8. Sounds like a good time–I know April was quite the challenge. Many of the bloggers who have aspirations of writing novels will be participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November so they will have pretty full plates with that. I happen to be one of that crowd. I did it last year and plan to do NaNo again this year.

    Also, I have cut back my blog posting days to 3 days per week as the 7 day schedule was preventing me from getting a lot of other things done.

    In any case, good luck, have fun, and I will try to drop in to see how the progress is going.

    Tossing It Out

    • I didn’t know of the NaNo, Lee.. but that’s ok 🙂 whoever will come will be welcomed 🙂 do drop by anytime.. April was quite the challenge and quite the fun too 🙂
