April, oh April…

April is afoot, Approaching soon, Beseeching me, Charming me to Ditch the laziness and Easily Flaunt my Growing, Heartfelt Interest to Just Keep Living in this Magical, Nostalgic world of words. Of course, my Pencil Quips that Rarely will it be this Strained, Tortured and Used, for Vinay is too lazy to Weave his eXcited Yearning Zest into words. But this month might be an exception.


This is the sixth time I’ll be taking part in the annual A to Z challenge which happens in April. The April A to Z Challenge is quite simple. Write 26 posts on 26 days. As Uncle Vernon so nicely puts it, β€œNo post on Sundays” πŸ˜‰ April 1st is a post with the theme A. April 2nd is a post with the theme B, and so on till April 30th which will be a post with the theme Z. The challenge, I feel, is to keep that writing flow and not be pulled down by laziness (which has happened twice to me).

Last time, I wrote stories with my best friend, Bhavya and it was fun. We wrote on the same theme each day and I loved it. This time, there might be a Version 2.0 of the same. There are some technical difficulties, which I hope gets resolved soon and the challenge can go ahead.

I’m going to push my muse to the limit in the month of April, as I usually do. This time, I am trying to do A to Z two ways. πŸ˜› The second one is something I call, β€œSpontaneity”. I’ll start with a post on the letter A. And I’ll be inviting my readers (I hope there will be some) to suggest a word with the letter B. One which inspires, I’ll do that theme for the letter B. The same idea follows for the rest of the month, meaning I don’t know what I’ll be writing on till the previous day.


And the third angle of posts is for NaPoWriMo, which challenges us to write 30 poems in 30 days. Now, this challenge is not something I’m swearing I’ll complete but will definitely be trying my hand at it. Which means, God willing, there’ll be at least 80 posts if all pieces of the April jigsaw fall into place.

Good luck to me.

Poetry & writing 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.
