A – to – Z – Apologies for Causing Zzzz’s

A2Z-BADGE-2015  Dear friends, followers and readers,

I took on this challenge feeling excited and exuberant about getting back to writing, and learning new things as I explored the blogging world. I didn’t realize at the time how much of a learning curve there would be. Some of you have helped me out along the way, pointing out technical glitches and making suggestions, for that I am grateful. 🙂

I chose the theme learning because, like the theme for my blog it brings me joy. Of course, most learning requires research and time and I quickly became overwhelmed trying to get all the notes and references. I do have every intent of finishing this out, however, even if it takes and extra day or two past the challenge end.

For those following me, I wanted to warn you that you may see multiple posts from me in a day until I’m caught up. I hope that this does not frustrate or bore you.

I thank everyone who does visit for their time, and my friends and followers, for your patience and continued interest.

In humble appreciation,

Emily,  at Sunny Side Up. 🙂


Baby Steps

Bis for Beginnings.

I’m new at this blogging thing. The very idea of putting myself out there, of actually publishing something for others to scrutinize, terrifies me. Yes, I’ve always dreamed of seeing my words in print someday, but I also assumed that day would be far in the future. You see, I have a problem.  I’m a writer who suffers from dwelling in procrastination because I insist on perfection before anyone should read the gibberish I’ve managed to scribble down. Those nasty voices inside my head just won’t let go. Listening to their screeches in the background, I freeze; I block, and I stare at a blank screen. I grow tired of this fight and have decided to do something about it. The A – to – Z Challenge seems like the perfect opportunity to defeat this monster. So world, here I am!
