A to Z ~ Reflections
When I started out, I was going to write about fantastic beings I'd met in books and movies. By the letter 'H', I realized two things. One, I didn't love my theme and two, I was getting very little feedback. I was burnt out and disappointed in myself.
I decided to stop, drop out and call it a day. Then, one awesome visitor came by with a suggestion I couldn't resist ~ thanks, Alyssa! After missing 'I' and 'J', I came back and wrote 'K' about my almost-meltdown. I was determined to try again. Starting with 'L', I spotlighted favorite books of mine (and a couple of authors that I couldn't resist).
So, I went from A is for Aslan to Z is for The Zero Game. I skipped two letters, but I made it. I still didn't get many people visiting, but the difference is that I loved what I was writing about and, at the end of the day, that's what matters.
