Langley Writes

about her rich and random life

Creativity, Desire and Enthusiasm (C, D and E) April 6, 2011

Woefully behind in the A-Z Blogging Challenge here. I wonder if that’s going to be a recurring theme this month? In a blinding flash of gusto I entered 2 blogs into the challenge – this blog and Langley Writes About Writing. As the name indicates, my other blog is a niche blog. This one is a random catch-all. I have not missed a single day of posting for the A-Z Blogging Challenge on the other blog. You can see for yourself how I’m doing here. Okay, enough with the preamble. Let me write a three-fer post including the letters C, D & E.

Creativity, Desire and Enthusiasm

My first thought is to write about the importance of creativity, desire and enthusiasm. I’ll go with that because it’s good. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that whatever goals or ambitions you have, if you channel creativity, desire and enthusiasm into the pursuit you cannot fail. That’s a lethal combination that will never go wrong. Think about the strength in these three words –

Creativity: the ability to use the imagination to develop new and original ideas

Desire: to want something very strongly

Enthusiasm: passionate interest in or eagerness to do something

Okay, I’m convinced. I’m going to throw more creativity, desire and enthusiasm into this blog. I think I wrote this post for myself. Maybe it helped you too?

Thank you A-Z Blogging Challenge.

The A to Z Blogging Challenge March 28, 2011

I’m writing about this here and on my other blog for two reasons. 1) I am excited about it and 2) I’ve entered both blogs.

An online writing buddy, Marie Anne, stumbled onto The A to Z Blogging Challenge and threw down the gauntlet. Many people joined the challenge to ramp up their blogging frequency. I’m just learning how to blog, so figuring out the frequency hasn’t hit my radar yet. But so many interesting people have signed up, and it looks like an ideal time for me to learn from cool and seasoned bloggers so…. yeah. I’m going for it.

Here’s the way it works: there are 26 letters in the alphabet and there are 26 days in April (excluding Sundays). The challenge is to blog Monday – Saturday. The blog post must correspond to the letter in the alphabet that falls on that day (i.e., April 1 = A, April 2 = B, etc.). This requires a 6-day per week blog post commitment during the entire month.

I am goal-oriented so this will work for me. Since I blog here and at Langley Writes About Writing, I will post on one or the other. On ambitious days I may post to both. I am 100% committed to posting to at least one of the blogs daily, for the duration of the challenge. It’s going to be fun and entertaining, my head’s already full of whacky ideas.

If you’re a blogger and want to join in, there’s a button on the other blog. I’d include it here too IF I knew how. See how much I have to learn! Right here in public!

So I hope you’ll follow along or join in.

And if you can think of an interesting blog post that starts with the letter Q, X or Z, I’m all ears.
