One week and a bit to go until the A-Z challenge. (You can find a nice little picture and a link on my notepad sticky note on the left)

I have thought about so many ideas, but I'm unsure yet about which letters to sort them to. Just to explain for newbies, although it's hardly likely that anyone in the part of the bloggosphere hasn't heard it yet, the A-Z challenge is a month-long blogging challenge, hosted by TossingItOut.blogspot.com.
There are 26 letters in the alphabet (in English) and you have 30 days to dedicate one post per day to each. Easy peasy.

So far, I have the A-poem planned (need to work on it though), then a series about my ride back to Germany on my motorbike (we'll see how creatively I can combine this traveling experience with writing), and last idea goes to: a multi-post elaboration on the a Hollywood practice called "The Heroes Journey", which I think is highly advisable for writers to at least know about. It's the knowledge of conventions that enables us to alter and experiment with them.
So, what are you ideas so far?
I hope to see you there soon.

    each day i'll post quotes on a particular subject starting with the day's letter. it was the easiest thing i could come up with.

    I'm looking forward to the blogfest and I can't wait to see what you have cooked up. I've got some ideas for each letter, things about me, my writing and my friends' writing as well. Tying it all together with my fave abc rhyme.

    I've done no prep, and am going to make it up on the fly.... I'm not even letting myself thing of possible words to spring from... should make it fun:) can't wait to follow yours daily! P.S A gorgeous kitch green lamp arrived today from CSN - thank you soooo much. Every time I see it I'll think of your blogfest and the first thing I ever won with my writing :)

    A lot of the posts I'm putting together have to do with science--it's one of my passions and there are so many possible subjects out there.

    I'm looking forward to reading your posts during April!

    Oh, can't wait for the travels by motorbike stuff!
    I'll be writing on a day-by-day basis. (I hope.) I will be away for 2 days, however, so I'll either prep something beforehand or, worst comes to worst, cheat and re-post. Since I have new followers, it should be fresh for them at least :)

    How fun. I believe I have heard of this, but I think it would be hard for me to follow for the type of posts I make, not to mention just POSTING every day. Good luck.

    The A to Z will be a blast! And would it scare you to know I finished all of my April posts last weekend?

    I recently signed up for the A to Z challenge and saw your blog listed so I just stopped by to say "Hi".
    I look forward to reading your alphabet posts in April.

    My themes are drawn from my upcoming first novel and focus (loosely) on writing, genealogy, and Hawaii.

    I decided to do posts on space exploration. Only I couldn't find missions beginning with B, X, Y or Z. So came up with something else sci-fi-y for those. Except Z. Zilch on Z so far.

    I'm just hoping the next information I'll discover won't be that you are Batman by night :)

    I can't wait for the A to Z! I've done nothing in preparation, nor am I going to! I will wait to see what happens on the day. I'm edgy like that. :)

    I'm not participating. So many blogs to read, I'd never get any writing done. And my writers group has me scheduled for two submissions during April.

    I think its going to be a hectic month. I'll enjoy reading as many posts from my fellow bloggers as I can though.
