In the moment (#AtoZChallenge)

#AtoZChallenge 2020 badge

The team decided our theme for this month’s posts here would be a take “2020 visions of blogging.” This set of weekday posts focuses on:

Blogging in the Present

Are you a pre-writer or a pantser? I pre-wrote all my posts over the course of February. I usually do this because my posts require a lot of research (including library trips), and I like to be free to visit others in April. But it also has a downside: Things can change a lot in a few weeks.
Interest changes. Every year I think I know what I want to blog about for the next Challenge. And then I change the idea multiple times. You might do the same. Having multiple interests is a good thing!
Inspiration changes. You might think your theme is up to date when you start, and then things turn around, and you might be inspired to blog, talk, muse about something else entirely. Allow yourself flexibility in the Challenge, and in your blogging!
Intensity changes. When you start a demanding challenge like A to Z, there are days when you just don’t feel like doing anything at all. Sometimes you get excited, and sometimes you just cruise along. Both are okay!
In the moment, a lot of things can happen that Influence your blogging. I am writing this post two weeks in advance, and I can’t even tell what things are going to look like both online and off by the time if goes live. But that’s okay! Even if you plan ahead, you can always go back in an edit. Things change. Things get interesting. Inspiration strikes. Go with it!

Did your interests or inspiration change since you started the Challenge this year? 
Tell us what inspires you!

One thought on “In the moment (#AtoZChallenge)”

  1. I am a planner and pre-writer. This year all my posts were ready by the last week in March. However I did have some more inspiration for yesterday’s post, which I edited. I have been surprised how well my ‘inspiration’ has fitted with the season of Easter, about which I am writing. I chose my words for each letter before I looked up when they would be published. Today and tomorrow fit really well!
