I participated in the A to Z Blog Challenge last year and had a blast. But my blogging this year has been sporadic at best and so I thought it probably wouldn't be fantastic for me to join, deciding instead to focus on writing and revising.
But then, yesterday, it hit me. The topic. The great way to move my blog in a direction that is a little more guided than just writing in general. And I still wondered about it, not sure, but when I sat down for just twenty minutes and had all my post topic except four letters, I decided I should take the plunge.
So, this year, for A to Z, I will be highlighting what I write - women's fiction. At times it seems that the writing community is the gathering place for everyone MG, YA and fantasy, and while I LOVE LOVE LOVE all my writing buddies, I wonder if more people would be interested in Women's Fiction if it got a little more awareness sent that way. This is the genre that I love to read, and have really loved writing. I plan to highlight books that I have read in this genre as well as those that I can't wait to get my hands on, hoping that somewhere along the lines, there might be someone who was looking for more resources on women's fiction, that someone might find a book that will make them consider the genre jump, and that I can shed some light on some books that are really amazing.
On Wednesday, I'll spend a little time explaining what this genre is - if you aren't sure, stop by then :)
Are you participating in A to Z? (If so, please let me know where to find you in the comments). Have you picked a theme? (Really, it's so much easier to do this if there is a theme). Do you read women's fiction?
