Sanity and Insanity

A-Z Theme RevealIn April I like to join a challenge called the A – Z Blogging Challenge.  Every day during April, except Sundays, I’ll write a blog post. The challenge is to stick to a broad theme and follow the alphabet throughout the month.

The first blog post must be about a subject that starts with A, and also relates to my theme. The second blog post must be about a subject that starts with B. And so on throughout the month.  A and B are usually pretty easy, but I have to think hard when I get to Q, and X, and Z.

This year they’ve asked us to reveal our theme during the last week of March. I’m writing a mystery novel, The Sanity of Strawberries,  set inside Fulton State Hospital. Since I love research even more than writing, I’ve learned a lot about mental illness, the hospital, and the history and theory of mental health treatments.

My theme for April will be Sanity and Insanity.

      Hello Yamini,

      Thanks for the visit! The challenge is always fun because I meet interesting people and read blogs I would never find otherwise. I’m looking forward to April.

    Sanity and Insanity. Oh my, that sounds intriguing… especially since I’ve been questioning my sanity lately.

    What a fascinating topic! April is certainly going to be a challenging month. Not only will we be trying to get our own posts up each day but keeping up with old friends and finding new ones in the A to Z will be very time consuming. So much reading and so much writing! I’m glad I’ve read my Book Club books for this month and next.😵

    Thanks for the visit, Csenge. Sometimes I find it hard to stop researching and Start writing. The A-Z challenge is a sure cure for that problem.
