Welcome A-Z Blogging Challenge Pals

4/1/2016 Update. It's surprising to me how quickly time flies, but how some things stay much the same. It's springtime in the Rockies, and though I don't have very many tulips in bloom, I do have the wet and heavy snow that's common this time of year. In a few days it'll be in the 70s. Of course I want to garden. This year, I'm going to try to focus on this huge property one last time. By next year, I might be living on one of the coasts with a much smaller yard. Fingers crossed.

I'm skipping Camp NaNoWriMo as I'm up to my ears in end-of-life issues with several aging family members. I need to edit, and just can't focus on it right now. Sometimes you just have to put the writing aside.

I'm not sure how much new blogging I'll do this month, but I thought it might be fun to revisit some of the old posts from previous A-Z Challenges. Hope to see you here and at the BBT Cafe over at Facebook where others are participating in this mini-challenge.

4/1/13 April is so full of newness to me, even when Old Man Winter hasn't quite left my backyard. I want to garden, and make things beautiful, and start all kinds of new projects!

This year, I'm joining writers at Camp NaNoWriMo to try and crank out the first draft of a mystery novel I've been moodling for quite a long time. I've worked on it in fits and starts, but I'm hoping to get down at least 50,000 words this month.

This blog is part of the social media platform for that writing project, and it's languished along with the book. But there is no better time to get a marketing platform in order, than long before a book is published. That's why I plan to post daily in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Fingers crossed that I can do it - it's a lot of hard work but so worth it!

I'll post about lots of other things, too, like what's going on in the garden, in the news, in my kitchen (expect a few recipes!), and what I'm reading. I hope you join the conversation.


So Happy April Fool's Day, a curious non-holiday if ever there was one. Are you a fool on Facebook? Let's connect over there. Leave me a comment with your handle, will you?

Good luck with Nano camp. I know you can do this. My first novel is the result of NaNoWriMo

Love the tulips. I did not get any planted this year. Last fall when the bulbs needed to go into the ground I was otherwise occupied.

Good luck with the writing. I know you can do it. You manage to get more done in one day than almost anyone else I know.
