If you've been dropping in from time to time, you already know this, but:
I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge. I used A to Z to focus on topical posts that range far outside of my usual discussions of the entertainment industry, the horror genre, and writing. It was nice to remember that I know lots of stuff about...stuff! (And also that I am an articulate person.)
So I want to issue an official thank you to Arlee Bird and co-hosts Jeffrey Beesler, Alex J. Cavanaugh, Jen Daiker, Candace Ganger, Karen J. Gowen, Talli Roland, and Stephen Tremp. Well done!
Extra credit goes to Marcus at Writing Investigated for creating the Next Blog / Surprise Me! buttons that have made going through the massive list of A to Z participants so much fun. Thanks, Marcus.
For the hosts of A to Z and all of you who participated in the challenge, I offer a stern round of Kane applause:
In case you are only catching up with me now via the mega-post, AND you have tons of creative juice because A to Z energized you as much as it did me, or even (especially) if you are dragging your arse now but you want to keep writing anyway, I want to issue a very special invitation to join me in tackling the Story a Day in May challenge. I am using my A to Z posts as story prompts. Please feel free to plunder my April posts for inspiration.
For today's story, I'm using my post on Bubonic Plague. Care to play along? (Never mind the swelling.)
