A to Z Blogging Challenge 2023 Intro and Theme Reveal

How do you do? My name is Ornery Owl, and that is what you may call me. For some reason, I decided to participate in the A to Z challenge this year even though I am also trying to complete a poetry manuscript and a novella for Dragon Soul Press, plus another novella for Totally Bound Press while submitting a novelette I wrote in February to Passionate Ink and tying everything I write together into one horrible, sanity-scarring document for Camp NaNoWriMo. This document has been given the title Spring has Splatted.

Why would I do something so crazy?

Well, some would call me the space cowgirl, and some would call me the gangster of love.

Okay, nobody has ever called me either of those things. Space cadet and the gangster of geek, maybe.

Perhaps I’m doing it just because.

Here are the disclosures and rules of engagement.

I am writing a series of drabbles about things that bemuse me.

I wrote a few of these posts in advance. That might be a good idea, except then I can't use them in my Camp NaNoWriMo word count. So, I won't do that next year if I do this thing again.

I have a potty mouth, and that spills onto the keyboard. If you are sensitive about swearing, the profane outbursts of Ornery Owl are not for you.

If you have a problem with people or owls writing naughty stories, this is not the blog for you.

If you have a problem with people or owls discussing sensitive topics, the thoughts of Ornery Owl are not for you.

If you don't appreciate a sense of humor that is at once absurd, cheeky, dry, and often pun-intensive, the words of Ornery Owl will not appeal to you.

You don’t have to agree with me about everything, or even about anything. Just remember that it is possible to disagree in a civil fashion or to simply move on to another blog if you don’t like what this one has to say.

If you would like to participate in the A to Z Challenge, you can learn more about it here.

If you would like to learn more about forthcoming anthology opportunities from Dragon Soul Press, follow this link.

If you write steamy and/or erotic romance like Ornery Owl does in her guise as Lil DeVille, you may be interested in learning more about Passionate Ink and Totally Bound Press.

No need to thank me. I enjoy sharing the love with fellow authors. Even if something turns out to not be the right opportunity for me, it may be the right opportunity for you. Or it may be the right opportunity for both of us!

This will be my longest post in this year’s A to Z challenge.

Thank fuck for that!

Ornery Owl has spoken.

There is a possibility that I will not be considered an official participant in this challenge. I will continue to moderate comments, and I refuse to allow anonymous comments. When I have done so in the past, it has opened my blog up to spam and trolls. Ain't nobody got time for that. Especially me.

Whether I'm an official or unofficial participant, you can expect some Ornery wisdom every day in April.

Here's some mellow and relaxing music, because this Odysee channel deserves some views and because Ornery Owl needs to calm the fuck down.

Here's the link in case you can't see the player.

I can't believe that Odysee added an autoplay option for videos. Is there anyone who likes navigating to a page and having videos start playing automatically? I hate that crap. I don't even like it on band pages! Let me choose when the video starts playing.
