Then I thought I should do A for Alpha Male. Which fit into the plan I had when I had a plan. The plan, of talking about elements of writing, and I could talk about Alpha male characters, and the existence of Beta characters could be B and so on and so forth, but that got a bit boring, so I gave up on that plan.
Arrogance was a great A word for the beginning of something that I really don’t think I’m remotely cut out to do, but that I’m arrogant enough to be pretty sure that if I pull it off it will be epic. Also because I’m arrogant enough to believe this drivel is worth reading.
I dwelt for a while on the word Apathy. I’ve been meaning to write a post on Apathy for a while. I’ve just been too apathetic to write it. I deal with apathy a lot in my life, not only at work, although I accept a lot of it there. But in my personal life too. See I’m a very apathetic person. I blame my father. He is apathetic too.
Awesome appeared appropriate for a while, and so did award. Awesome because this challenge is going to be awesome. Also awesome cause I could tell you about some of my recent experiences, like going to see Phantom of the Opera live on Broadway, which I did right before writing this post. Or I could do an Award and announce the winner of my first ever book giveaway (see end of post!). Although that doesn’t really work because it’s not really an award, it’s just a giveaway…and claiming that reading about my recent experiences is awesome is arrogant.
So in the end I decided on OMFG because indecisive is not an A word. And I’m a bit overwhelmed. But I’m also excited. And, maybe. Just maybe, ready. Don’t let the fact that I’m writing this at 12:47am on 3/31/12 in a Marriott hotel room, in NYC and I don’t have any of the other posts written (I have a full train ride home for that). If you’re here for the Chalange, then Welcome!
I hope you enjoy the ride, and that I haven’t scared you away, yet.
