#AuthorApril: A to Z Challenge

Dear Alison, 

In early January, my blog, All Things Writing, became INK Sisters Write, and you became my official blogging partner in crime. (You’ve been my writing partner in crime much longer.) We decided to write letters to each other. Letters that share Writer love about writing habits, the writing craft, writing inspiration, or really anything else that struck our writerly fancy. 

A month or two ago, I sent you the link about the A to Z Challenge with the grammatically correct question: Do you wanna?

Your answer was a resounding YES!! And so, we entered INK Sisters Write into this amazing and possibly daunting blogging challenge.

A to Z sent us updates and tips to prepare for the challenge. They suggested themes, guests posts, etc. 

Sure, we roughly planned out a blogging schedule, but it was more like—I’ll take A, you take B, and on and on to Z…Not exactly inspiring, but at least we had something. Then Tuesday night, you sent me a cryptic text message: I have a theme idea for the #AtoZchallenge

At our Critique meeting Wednesday, you presented your theme proposal, along with the beginnings of a more detailed plan for the month. 




And then, as if a pink outline wasn't enough, you typed it up...


Alison, I do so appreciate this initiative you took, and I am excited for this challenge. So very excited, and now for the theme reveal...

AUTHOR APRIL


An author for every letter of the alphabet—that’s brilliant. 
You even suggested a twitter hashtag to add to each of our posts:

 #AuthorApril 


We now have a plan, a real plan, for the next 25 letters of the alphabet, and we get to do what we love to do best, sharing the writing love one letter at a time.

Until tomorrow, 


Kim
