A to Z April Blog Challenge

I never intended this blog to be about ONLY Johnny Depp movies. I wanted it to be about my writing and other passions in life, but have been slow to introduce other topics to the blog. Partly because I haven’t gotten over my initial shyness of sharing my thoughts publicly and partly because I figure I don’t want to alienate the few followers that are reading the Johnny Depp posts.

Like any good writer though, I have to step out from my comfort zone and not worry about alienating people, but to write for me and to be true to myself. To this end, I decided to sign up for the A to Z April Blog Challenge which is pretty much like it sounds. Write 26 blog entries during the month of April (Every day except Sundays), each one being based of a different letter of the alphabet. The topics can be anything the writer wants and there’s no limits.

I don’t have any broad plan other than to write about myself, my interests and what ever catches my imagination when I sit down to write – Hey look a squirrel! I’m hoping you’ll follow my posts in April and if you’re so inclined there’s still 10 or so hours left to sign up at the website to register as a participant.

I’ll still be posting regular Johnny Depp movie reviews during the month and should have a review for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? up later this week.

Thanks for reading and here we go…

  1. Just stopping by from the a-z blog challenge, I love what you had to say about getting over your initial shyness and writing for you. These are definitely things that most, if not all, writers have to face at some point.

    Best of luck with the challenge. I can’t wait to see what you write. 🙂

  2. I agree with the “stepping out of one’s comfort zone” part. I’m no professional writer, but I do like improving my writing, and this A-Z challenge seems like a good way to help with that.

    Will you be posting a Johnny Depp-related entry as part of the challenge?

    Good luck! 🙂
