Last year right around this time one of my fellow Scribo buds, Kelly Said, told me about the A to Z Challenge. It's blogging every day in the month of April except for Sundays, with each day assigned a letter from the alphabet.
April 1 - A
April 2 - B
And so on.
Since I'd been TRYING to get my but in gear with the whole blogging thing, I thought it sounded like a cool idea. I decided to give it a shot. Of course, knowing how I love to procrastinate (and realizing this was a HUGE commitment) I decided to do the challenge MY way. Instead of daily I went with a weekly plan.
Anyhoo. I think I got up through E or somewhere thereabouts before crapping out. BUT!!! I started blogging regularly after that. Gimme a gold star!
This year I decided to check out the challenge for real. I went to the website, signed up all official-like, and chose to do a theme to make it easier on myself.
My theme? Here's my little homemade banner. Kinda proud of my non-artistic self seeing as how I can't even draw a decent stick figure.
I decided to take the month of April to showcase some nuggets of insight, inspiration, and encouragement from those who've gone before us, AND promote other authors' works. Fantasy, PNR, and a smattering of a few other genres. Most are from my publisher, J. Taylor Publishing, and the rest are other favs & friends.
The best part? ALL my posts are finished & scheduled. *patting self on back* I get to sit back & relax the whole month long - and hopefully get some work done on my WiP!!
I hope you'll stop by! Perhaps you'll find your new favorite author or book!

Are YOU A-Zing? Pick a theme, or panster to the end?
