A to Z writing theme

In this wonderful world of writers, sometimes you come across some great writing ideas that encourage and inspire you. 
Kristin from Swords and Stilettos came across my blog and informed me about an A to Z theme for the month of April.  Write every day starting with the letter A.  Choose a theme and off you go.  I really thought about the theme because I didn't want to get bored. 
So, naturally I chose Blake, my husband to be my theme. I have always had a hard time writing about him because I LOVE him!! And I didn't want to not do my feelings justice or have inadequate words.  So, here is the chance for me to face my fear and create a keepsake for my family.  (And to embarrass him a little bit.)  I hope you enjoy!
If you are interested, the A to Z button is on the right.  Anybody can join up!

Here is my wonderful husband Blake.

I love this! I love that you have connected with Kristin. You really do have a gift for writing and I'm so glad you are "facing your fears" that will be a fun theme:-) Can't wait to read some!!!

I love this! What a fun idea! I'm so excited that you and Kristin connected! You definitely have a talent for writing and I can't wait to hear what you have to say about Blake…way to face your fear:-)

I love it!! This is a great theme! So glad you decided to do A to Z! I think it will be a whirlwind of an experience from what I hear, but it should be a lot of fun too. And I think we'll meet TONS of like-minded bloggers and writers!

Also, I wanted to tell you about IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group). It is a group that posts the first Wednesday of every month. You post your insecurities, struggles, or encouragement for other writers. People visit your blog and offer support and encouragement. There is an AMAZING support group in this writing/blogging community. If you go to my blog, you'll see the badge with the link. GO there and sign up. Your first post would be THIS Wednesday, but you can combine your A to Z and your IWSG post or do two separate ones. It'll be worth it! Let me know if you have any questions.

Also, you might want to turn off Captcha before A to Z begins, at least that's what I was told to do. I think it discourages other bloggers from leaving a comment when they have so many blogs to visit. :)

Thanks Real Imprints/Lindsay! I am looking forward to it. You should have seen Blake's face when I told him.=) I think he was happy and scared lol. Kristin, thanks for all the info! I will check out the group and turn off my captcha.=) So we should be visiting five blogs right? Same ones every day or what? We are supposed to upload every day?

All husbands should be embarrassed like that every once in a while! Can't wait to learn more about you both!

I was gonig to remind you to turn off Captcha, but I see Kristin beat me to it! :O)

Yes, post every day and visit as many blogs (and comment) as you can. The more you visit, the more that will visit you in return. And no, I don't think you have to visit the same ones each day, but you can if you find one you really want to follow. :)
