Blogging A-Z April Challenge 2014

The first year I joined the A-Z Challenge, I wrote bits and pieces of Grim Tales from the Ruralhood. A couple of people said I should put them into a short story collection so I removed them from my blog and did that.  The second year, I wrote The Waiting Summer, essays about the summer before my senior year. That was fun, reminiscing. You can still read those under the tab, at the top, except be aware that I’m still working on editing them and linking.

Two things I learned about myself writing The Waiting Summer stories. That in the olden days:
~ I was an emotional mess, but aren’t most teens?
~ I wasn’t as fat or ugly as I thought at the time—that is if photos don't actually lie, which is soooo up for debate in my mind.

My A-Z 2014 theme will be—drum roll please: Remembering the Past.

Once again a fun theme. I'm sure you'll have a good time writing and reminiscing and readers will enjoy the journey you prepare for them. Have another great April.
