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.

Filling Up the Tank and Packing My Bags

           Tomorrow we'll be heading out on a month long journey here at Wrote By Rote.  Yesterday you got a musical preview of things to come during the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.   Today I'm just kind of taking it easy while I invite my readers to follow me on a journey to some of the places that have significance in my life.

           The month of April is booked for my A to Z journey.  I'll be posting every day in April except Sundays other than April 1st.  That's 26 days of 26 blog posts, one for each letter of the alphabet.  Come with me to see where I'll take you each day.  Maybe you can guess where I go, maybe not--it's a big continent.

           In May it will be business as usual on this blog.  I'll be back to Saturday only posting and whenever I can I'll be opening my blog to guests.   If you have something memoir related that you'd like to write about, please let me know and we'll see where we can fit you in.    If you have an upcoming book or publication you'd like to promote, a memoir related event you'd like to talk about, something about memoir writing that you'd like to share, or even just a story you'd like to tell then let me know about it and we can schedule a guest spot.

          I look forward to hearing from you.   And I hope you'll join me in April.
