I'm excited to tell you that today I'm guest posting at the main A-Z Challenge blog! It's an “All About Tina” post. Each of us co-hosts is taking a day to introduce ourselves by all answering the same set of questions. I really think you'll find my post entertaining, if for nothing else than the ice-cliff story. Which included me with no pants on for part of the story. In winter. In case the whole ice thing didn't hint enough at the setting.
I realize you're probably tired of all the talk about this April event, but the main reason for me doing so is actually to offer an opportunity to you. I was in a major slump last year, and joining the challenge re-focused and re-directed me back on my correct path. I'd gotten all caught up in hanging around with some very talented writers, and it literally paralyzed me. I was afraid of posting something inferior, so I didn't post much at all. Of course, we were having quite traumatic events in our extended family as well, and that put Life is Good not even on the back-burner, but completely off the stove.
Having a purpose for posting, and new visitors daily, provided much needed healing for my self-esteem and my writing muscles, which had gotten pretty slack. I remembered my purpose in blogging: writing practice. Practice isn't perfect, and neither are my posts. They're just a work-out. Some days you kick-ass in the gym, others you climb off the stairmaster before finishing the program and hit the showers. If you're in the mood for a work-out, consider joining us. It's your opportunity. Make the most of it.
