Not lazy and not lame. Late. Just late. And only by a day, so I’m giving myself a pass.

Yesterday was the official L-day for the A – Z Blogging Challenge and today is M-day. I may stay one day late on this blog for a while because I’m keeping up with the challenge religiously on my other, more serious blog (Langley Writes About Writing). I’ve got nice readers there that expect me to say something meaningful or helpful. Here, it’s basically musings, thoughts, random ‘eurekas.’

Another reason I’m behind is because I’m onto a new craft project. When an idea hits me, I tend to jump in obsessively. I can’t make time for other things like blog posts, laundry or grocery shopping. For now, I’ve got nothing to share on that. Along with my obsessiveness I also have to have it perfect before the reveal.

Many years ago I had a friend who’s license plate said “:15 minutes.” When asked why, he answered “it takes me :15 minutes to get anywhere in town and I’m always :15 minutes late.” It was true, he was notoriously late to everything.

So here I am, late for this blog post. I’m keeping on because I don’t want to abandon the goal of getting through the entire alphabet.

For those of you stopping by via the A – Z Blogging Challenge, what are your best tips and tricks? What keeps you on course?

    I’ve done much better with the A-Z challenge than I do with most challenges, which surprises me. I’m very ADD and can find tangents to be off on in a heartbeat. That I’ve stayed on task with this has been most satisfying for me. I usually start thinking about the next letter as soon as I finish the first, although this time I didn’t because I had another writing challenge to fulfill and spent the time writing that instead. Now I need to double down and come up with an N topic before midnight (my personal deadline). In fact, I may just have thought of it while writing this.

    One of my daughters is always late to everything. We thought she wouldn’t make it to her own wedding. She never made it to her classes on time, always missed the bus, gets to work late (and she’s the owner). Some people are just late. But she’s very lovable 😉

    Better late than never 😉

    I started the A-Z thing three days late, but wrote three (rather pathetic) quickies and got all caught up. Since then, the topics have just sort of been coming to me easily.

    I’m pretty sure that I just jinxed myself.

    My “M” post is right here:
