The Blogging from A to Z Challenge is almost here. Yay! Hard to believe I’m back after almost crawling across the finish line last year. But who could resist a challenge involving chocolate … I mean, daily blogging.
I promise to keep posts short, as I know we’re here to visit a multitude of wonderful blogs, respond to comments, and have a generally awesome time.
My theme for the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge is INSPIRATION.
Now that Stranger or Friend, my mystery from Solstice Publishing, is out in the world, I thought it suitable to show where my inspiration came from. I say show because there will be lots of photographs and little text. Quick observations. Keeping it short, remember? Very short.
Inspiration, as I’m sure you know, comes from feelings, life experiences, reading, and so much more. In the writing of this novel, inspiration came from my observations as an Eastern European immigrant to the U.S.
There are interminable things a new arrival sees, many invisible or hardly noticeable to locals. While the mystery is the focus, Zoe Sinclair, the main character, deals with a very real and human aspect in all our lives: a certain prejudice that hides in every heart.
She deals with much more, of course — joy, heartbreak, an overwhelming mystery, but one step at the time, right? :)
So, let’s do this. The first post will be titled Arriving. How does arriving to a new place — new country, new continent — at the age of twenty-two feel like? See you on April 1st.
