April Is Host To The A-to-Z Blogging Challenge!


Although I'm not participating in the A to Z Challenge this year, I still want to give a shout out to those who are and wish them good luck and interesting blog posts to read!

A to Z Challenge

I've done the challenge quite a few times. It is a real challenge, but so fun and there are so many blogs that participate in all kinds of areas, not just writing blogs. This year, so far, there are 232 blogs signed up. 

The sign-up will close on April 9th, so if you want to participate, get on over there and sign up at

A lot of us here on IWSG also post there. This is how I found it years ago. I love the idea behind it and the man who started it, Arlee Bird, has put heart and soul into it much as our Fearless Ninja has at IWSG.

As long as you're running around blogs, please make sure to visit our wonderful co-hosts and thank them for their dedication to IWSG, Jemima Pett, Nancy Gideon, and Natalie Aguirre!

April 5 question - Do you remember writing your first book? What were your thoughts about a career path on writing? Where are you now and how is it working out for you? If you're at the start of the journey, what are your goals?

Yes, I remember writing my first novel! I wanted to make a living at it. That has not happened for me and it killed my love of writing for quite awhile. I'm hoping that will change this year. I want to love to write again. I want to create and meet new characters. I want to LOVE the words again.
So, that's what I'm working on this year...

Pretty images from our daughter's wedding...!


  1. Anonymous7:02 AM

    Must have felt so proud of your daughter.
    Want to love to write again..? Me too,. Make a living ? Only in my dreams. Relative in publishing advised that I'm 'not a writer.' Correct - so far....

  2. I hope you get your love of writing back. Congrats on your daughter's wedding. She looks beautiful. My daughter is getting married later this year.

  3. Beautiful pictures!

  4. Looks like your daughter's wedding was great.
    Find the love of writing first and worry about everything else later.

  5. I've never seen a wedding dress like that. It's so regal.

  6. What a fun time you must have had at your daughter's wedding. Lovely pictures. Finding that joy in writing again is tough. Try to relax and not worry about anything else--like making money. LOL That is a dream.

  7. I used to do the AtoZ each year, and then I just ran out of time. It was fun and I didn't enjoy it as labor of love.

    Great wedding pictures!
