A to Z challenge wrap up

For the past 30 days, I have been partaking in the A to Z challenge where each day (except Sundays) you post a blog on a new topic following the letters of the alphabet. So April 1 was A, April 2 was B and so on.

This was my first year doing the challenge. The organizers of the challenge suggest you pick a theme for your writing, but I elected to stick to my normal topics – parenting on Monday, quotes on Wednesday, and writing/publishing on Thursday. Friday is my Featured Author spot, so I actually did two posts – the typical author interview or excerpt and then also a short blog that fit the challenge letter. (Any authors interested in being on my Friday Feature, contact me through the About Me section.)

I began picking my topics and writing in February and finally by the end of March, I had all my posts written. It was nice not to have to write any blogs in April. I noted that many other challenge entrants did not do this and fell to the wayside by letter H or so or missed some of the days. Even a few decided not to participate.

I enjoyed the challenge and look forward to doing it again next year. I might even decide to do a theme. I saw so many creative ones out there. (Part of the challenge includes visiting other blogs, which introduced me to many new blogs – some interesting and some not so much.)

For any of you who have missed out on my blogs from the A to Z challenge, here is a recap of what I covered.

A is for Alexandria (excerpt from my work in progress)

B is for Book (Quote) and Basting Sauce (recipe)

C is for Creating your own fictitious town, island or world
