Sciency Words: A to Z Challenge

I’ve wanted to do this for a while now, but every year I chicken out. It’s a lot of writing. That by itself is intimidating. For me, it’ll be a lot of research and a lot of drawing as well, all packed into twenty-six days.

I nearly chickened out again, but this year I’m finally doing it. I’m doing the A to Z Challenge. Throughout the month of April, I’ll be posting every day (excluding Sundays), with each post proceeding through the alphabet letter by letter. And my theme will be Sciency Words (obviously).

For those of you who might be new to my blog, Sciency Words is a weekly series where we look at some interesting new science or science related term so we can all expand our scientific vocabularies together.

I’m going to use the A to Z Challenge as an opportunity to cover some terminology that I’ve never really had a good reason to cover before. I’ll also revisit a few terms that I’d like to say more about. And while we’re at it, we might touch on a few controversies surrounding the definitions of certain terms.

Don’t worry, Pluto. We’ll get to you.

So tune in beginning tomorrow for the Sciency Words: A to Z Challenge. We’ll be starting with acetic acid.

      Thanks. It’s turning out to be an even heavier workload than I expected, but I think I’m staying on top of it… for now.

        Yeah. I’ve done NaNoWriMo and a couple of other intense, discipline-heavy writing things that I’ve devised for my own… turture… yeah, let’s go with torture. It’s hard work, not to be downplayed. I’m sure push through; I’m sure you can do it. You’re good at what you do. Just ride your skill through. Go go go!

        Thanks, Scott! I appreciate the encouragement. Yeah, I’ve put myself through a few intense challenges like this before. Compared to a year-long mission to the Solar System, this shouldn’t be so tough.
