writing honors.

Writing honors‘ might be a bit pretentious… but I am honored for any recognition my writing has received. I have fun participating in writing challenges… and I’ve learned from them.

As we begin 2017, I have been participating less often. Almost not at all. Maybe I will return…

Thanks to the creators/hosts of these challenges. And thanks to my followers and readers.


Again in 2017, as in 2016, I completed the A to Z Challenge. I had trouble choosing a theme and ultimately chose to do two — music and bitchfest (in which I bitched about stuff… with humor… yet truth). Two themes was madness! I don’t plan to do two at once ever again!

If you’d like to read any of the posts, they can be accessed in the menu at the top of the page or here:
a-to-z 2017 – music
a-to-z 2017 – bitchfest
(or both)

Thank you, as always, for your kindness and support.

a-to-z challenge survivor.
During April 2016, I participated in the A to Z Challenge. My theme was going to be ‘small‘ but every small post turned out to be a poem. So… ‘poetry‘ was truly my theme.

If you’d like to read any of my work written for this challenge, a list of links to all 26 poems can be found in my recap post.

Thank you for your kindness and support.
