You've Been Warned

I have decided to do something that will hopefully make you all very happy.  To compensate for my lack of substantial posts lately, I'm about to bombard you with a whole month of haphazard, mediocre drawings and disjointed thoughts that should probably never be put on the Internet.

I'm participating in the A to Z Challenge!

During the month of April, I'll write and draw one post per letter of the alphabet.  Since the alphabet has 26 letters and April has 30 days, that means I'll be posting (almost) every day for a whole month, except four of those days, which will likely be Sundays, since Sunday posts tend to get ignored anyway.  Or I'll procrastinate for several days and be forced to squeeze all the posts into the remaining days.

As you know, and as I am quickly realizing with a mounting sense of panic, April starts on Monday.  So prepare yourselves for posts.  Lots of posts.  I've been trying to prepare by doing some drawings in advance, so then all I have to do is write the posts to accompany them.  This has been somewhat of an adventure, because I normally write the posts first and then do the drawings.

Drawing this made me question my own mental health.  Someone please turn this into a meme.

That is basically how I will look in 30 days.  And you're all going to be so sick of me by then.  Kind of like when close friends move in together or go on a long roadtrip or get trapped in an avalanche with some bears.  At first you're all like, "We can totally handle this," but by the end you're all stewing in passive-aggressive silence and eating the weaklings and spreading spiteful rumors about each other among the bears.  This will probably be like that.  Maybe there will even be bears.  I'm not ruling anything out at this point.

    1. I know, I'm not seeing many other illustrated blogs on the list. I must be certifiably insane for attempting this. I'm hoping people will be like, "Hey, did you hear about that crazy girl?" and maybe I will get lots of attention. Or no one will notice. One of those.

    1. It will surely be amusing one way or another. I just hope the Internet will be laughing *with* me and not *at* me...

  6. Hey Haley! You should totally do the challenge. Oh, wait, you already said you are. Well, in that case, you should type it with your toes and battle bears! Yeah, that's it. And I will do it too. Just kidding, cowgirl! You would have to be CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZSZy to do it! I am totally not doing it. Wait, unless I just announced to everyone on my blog that I am doing it, in which case, I don't want to renege. Oh, crap. I guess we are both stuck doing the A to Z.

    Good luck!

    1. Wait... does this mean it might not be profitable to order 500 copies of my own book from myself? Um, I mean, not that I would do that. I have to go now, there's this order I need to cancel...
