I must confess, I didn't even know what the A-Z challenge was until about mid March. Everywhere I looked, people were talking about it. I grew curious enough to go check it out and thought about it for a full minute before I signed up. So many people had themes for their posts. It seemed like a smart idea. I chose a theme that I could share with my family. I wrote a children's story for every, single letter of the alphabet.
Coming up with a story everyday stretched my imagination and I'd like to think it strengthened my writing as well. It was during one of my pirate stories that I got the idea for my next novel. I also received so much encouragement that I think I'm finally brave enough to start submitting some of my work in to magazines. Even more amazing is the growth of my blog. I started with eight followers and now I have fifty-three!
I would like to thank Arlee Bird and everyone else that worked so hard to make this challenge happen. It was an incredible experience. I also want to thank all of my followers for joining me on my writing journey. Some of you faithfully commented on every post I wrote. Thank you so much!
I discovered so many wonderful blogs this month. A few of my favorites are:
Hugs & Kisses of Poetry by Fida
A Dose of Jules
