A to Z Theme 2016
For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Arlee's A to Z Road Trip
Coming Soon to a Town Near You!
I just might be near you this summer and I'm going to have some time on my hands at certain points. What a great opportunity to meet up with some of my blogging friends! While many of us are taking the virtual Road Trip through the A to Z Challenge list, I'll actually be out on the roads of America.
My tentative route is shown below on the map and some planned destinations with approximate dates when I'll be in those areas. It's short notice I know, but maybe some of you can figure a way to meet up. Ideally we could set up some group meetings at coffee shops, libraries, or other similar types of places. Maybe you'd like to even host something at your own home.
Since I'll be on the road I'd have to leave it up to you to set up meeting arrangements Just let me know so we can confirm everything first. Also, if you'd be interested in having me meet with your writing group or some other type of group I'd be willing to consider that as well. I'd be delighted to offer a presentation on "Blogging for Author Platform" (a presentation which can easily be adapted for other purposes besides writing) or "Why You Should Consider Blogging from A to Z in April." I can also adapt a program especially to suit your needs. Let me know if you're interested and if it fits into our mutual schedules we can work something out.
I'll be plenty busy this summer, but if I can get a chance to meet you I'd like to try to put that into my schedule. Take a look at my route and schedule and then if you think we can coincide our timing let me know in the comments and we can see what we can come up with.
My Tentative Route
My Approximate Schedule
Houston, TX June 22-28
June 28-July 1 en route to Knoxville, TN (passing through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama--my route is flexible)
July 1 - July 12 Maryville, TN (near Knoxville)
July 12- July 16th traveling to NJ with stops in Charlotte, NC; Danville, VA; Richmond, VA (again my route is flexible)
July 16-August 11 Jersey Shore ( I can travel to points near that area including Philadelphia and NYC)
August 11 -August 16 return to Los Angeles with probable stops in Rapid City, SD and Yellowstone Park, WY.
Do you see any potential meet-up points? Will you be going anywhere this summer?
