April A to Z Challenge Theme

My very first blog posts were published in an alphabetical sequence, mostly because I had no idea what to write about.  Since then, I’ve posted erratically on a variety of topics and even half-heartedly participated in a few April A-Z Challenges.  In my defense, I’ve also published a novel, had a short story published in an anthology, completed a few children’s eSeries with BigWorldNetwork.com, and narrated audiobooks for a variety of talented authors, so I think I deserve a bit of slack.

In exploring my role as a writer and developing my author platform, I’ve been unable to decide what to do with my blog.  Should I use it as a journal to share my aviation experiences, the antics of my children, or my struggle to improve my health?  What about a loose collection of short stories?  Or all of the above?  I simply don’t know.

What I do know is that I want to be a better writer, and that takes practice, dedication, and more than a touch of fearlessness.  With that in mind, I’m going to participate in this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge by using “fear” as my theme.  My grand plan is to offer you 26 short stories featuring a different phobia each day–except Sundays–giving my creativity and writing skills a much needed workout, and hopefully providing something entertaining for you to read.  With any luck, completing this challenge will also help me banish some of my own fears.

I hope you’ll join me on my dark adventures into the very depths of our fears beginning April 1st.  I’ll do my best to give you the chills.Image
