April A to Z Blogging Challenge

Hello! It's difficult for me to realise that April is almost here!

It embarrassing that this blog has been dormant again but, hopefully, will be more lively during April. I'm about to embark on another April A to Z Blog Challenge. 

April is the Cruellest Month according to the poet T S Elliot, but it doesn’t need to be! 

If you use the search bar, accessed via the sidebar, you'll find that my first April A to Z Blog Challenge was in 2013 . (As far as I recall)  I didn't do a challenge every April after that but I have done quite a few that you can read, if interested. 

I haven't signed up for any official Blog Challenge this year, as I have sometimes in the past. Instead, this is a very personal challenge for me to really get back to writing every day but more so to find a home for some of my current research. Since my WIP is set in Victorian Scotland, that is my theme for the month. 

My current novel begins in 1849 with the birth of the main female protagonist, who is planned to feature in a 3-book series. This April challenge for 2023 mainly contains research that relates to the 1840s through to the 1860s.  

Short items should appear on my blog every single day beginning with an ‘A’ post on Saturday 1st April 2023, continuing with a post titled with the next alphabet letter, and ending with a ‘Z’ post on the 26th April. This should give me a few days at the end of the month to do a round-up of my progress, and/or add any other research themes I’ve been tackling as I write.

I hope you'll join me on this little journey: some company is always welcome. 

 More to follow... tomorrow!
