I started this blog in January 2013, and pretty much cut my blogging teeth during the A-Zs of that year. Since then, my blog grew to the tune of 350 followers, and more importantly, friendship with bloggers from all across the globe grew more than I could’ve imagined.
During my first A-Z year I met Tina, who is no longer with us. What a beautiful human being! I would not be here today, still blogging, had it not been for Tina.
Now, please allow me to introduce my theme — an extension of the previous post, Moments Big and Small.
The Silvia Writes 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge theme is …
Suspenseful, wasn’t it? I know, I know. Allow me a quick note:
I’ve been in the writing cave lately, hiding behind my computer. There is nothing like full immersion when writing, is there? Nothing like living in the smallest of moments, the everyday moments.
Some days, when in the writing cave, I have an instant vision of where the story should go (these are good times). Other days, when ideas aren’t as forthcoming, I struggle with scenes, directions (these times aren’t as much fun).
The first two chapters are in final form. The plot is there, and so are thirty thousand words — all written. My reward to myself is participation in the A-Z Challenge, a break of sorts (or an attempt at a break from the writing cave, as it’s hard to think of the challenge as a true break), because life is about living and learning and loving each and every day. Life is about connecting with like-minded people. Life is finding beauty in places new and old, in an accumulation of everyday moments.
So, let’s connect during the month of April. I look forward to visiting and reading your blogs. In the process, I look forward to learning from the experience.
