The 2012 A to Z Challenge--Ready? Set? Go!

Tomorrow--April Fool's Day--the annual A to Z Blog Challenge takes off at In case you're not familiar with it, the A to Z Challenge takes place every April. Participants (anyone can join) blog every day of the month on topics of their choice, according to the letters of the alphabet in sequence.

Over 1200 bloggers have joined this year. Fools? All of us? I think not!

This year I have decided to remain true to the original theme for my blog...encouraging beginners to take that first begin writing that novel or poem, to pick up those paints, to compose that song, or rehearse those lines...whatever artistic urge longs for expression.

Together we'll dispel uncertainty, overcome frustration, and make a mockery of defeat. We'll embrace inspiration, encourage imagination, and cheer success.

Tomorrow we'll start by looking at all the ADVICE that's out there for beginners.
"ADVICE is what we ask for when we already know the answer
 but wish we didn't."
--Erica Jong--
