Blogging challenges aren’t really my thing, but I have absolutely no regrets about doing the A to Z Challenge.
For one thing, I discovered the magical way writing prompts work.
And I also found some new blogging and writing friends along the way.
For my wrap-up post, I thought I’d take a look back at what April’s brought me:
Reading. It’s been a big reading month for me, and I’m hoping I will be able to keep up the pace. I’ve been quite good about keeping track of recent reads on Goodreads. It’s definitely a Facebook for readers!
Savory. I started sending recipe tweets to my husband this month, and the result? We’ve had many a savory, Twitter-inspired meal.
Tumblr. I finally got around to starting a Tumblr blog for mostly bookish and writing-related things, and it’s been a whole lot of fun so far: Quotes, Notes & Quick Takes. If you have a Tumblr blog, I’d love to drop by for a visit, so please leave a link to your Tumblr in the comments!
Umbrella. Because it’s been that kind of a month. April showers, right?
Vacation. Yes, I’m ready for one. No, nothing’s planned. Yet.
Writing. Because I haven’t been. Writing, I mean. And as I look back over the month, I feel a touch of melancholy over all the missed writing time. May? May will be different. Daily writing goal, here I come.
X. Marks the spot. Despite not writing much this month, April’s delivered an amazing crop of ideas. Treasures, all of them.
Yearning. See Writing, above.
Zed. We had Easter dinner over at my sister’s place, and the talk at the table turned to books, as often happens when I’m around. My cousin recommended Zed, by Elizabeth McClung. It sounds like an interesting read, and so the TBR grows, bit by bit, encounter by encounter.
What things did April bring you?
