Yes, five days to go and then A to Z is here. I'll be completely prepared by this time tomorrow. I'm looking forward to having new friends visit here and finding more out in the blogosphere.
Even though a three veteran of A to Z, I have some concerns going into the month of April. I'm over 20K into my next book and I would like to keep the momentum going but I know I won't have as much time. It's also that time of year when I need to get a lot of yard work going. Between the weather these past few months, there's a bigger mess than usual in the yard. With such a cold March, including snow yesterday, I've started nothing outside. More demands on my time. I want to really give max effort this year and have imposed stress on myself about it.
Last year I didn't get around to all the blogs but I hope to do that this year. But I want to do it at a pace that I can enjoy the experience. My minion duties won't be a burden and I intend to visit all my regular blog buddies and also visit back anyone who visits me. That leads me to some tiny bits of advice.
Make a strategy for your experience. Decide how many blogs you can visit and enjoy. Some days you might not reach your goal but on other days you might do more. You can use Sunday to catch up or use it as a day to step away from the keyboard. If you can manage, don't so all your visits in one session. Visit some and then do something else. Come back to it later if you can.
I'd like to wish Terri Rochenskie good luck with your upcoming release, Love's Sorrow. Beautiful cover, isn't it. Her release date is April 21st.
My last bit of advice it to take a break between now and next Tuesday. This is my last post until April 1st. Are you ready? Any last bits of advice? Do you rest on Sundays or catch up? Do you have a strategy?
