IWSG: A to Z Minion
It's the first Wednesday of the month, and time for members of the Insecure Writer's Support Group to share their writerly insecurities. The group was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and those interested in joining in can visit www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com for more information.
My insecurity for the month centers around next month's Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I know I touched upon that last month, but that was before I decided to make a deeper commitment to the challenge by enlisting to become one of the A to Z minions. That's right, I would be helping out the A to Z co-hosts, or more precisely, the lovely S. L. Hennessy, who was coincidentally a minion for last year's challenge.
What this entails is that I would be assigned a small portion of the list of participants, and I would be required to check on them from time to time, to make sure they are still taking part in the challenge. It sounds simple enough, until you take into account the fact that I am yet to schedule any of my challenge posts. I have traditionally chosen to do so a day or two before each day's assigned letter, but I would ideally love to have everything scheduled before next month.
On the plus side, I have at least taken the time to outline my posts, so that I have at least a vague idea of what I'll be highlighting for each day of the challenge. And just like last year, I find myself torn between choices for each letter of the alphabet. But more on that during the Theme Reveal blogfest later this month.
