It looked as if this wasn't going to happen this year, but it's here now.
EXTRA BOOKS TO READ
Challenge completed on August 26
This is another I want to join, at Instagram. It's only four categories and a bonus one.
Another I want to take on. It's a very good and diverse theme to read and explore:
It's something I am trying to do right now. It's been so long since I actually had an idea for a story. Meanwhile, I have begun sending my stories out again. One of them at least. I had about two rejections last year and have yet to hear from this one. I haven't sent out my memoir this year. And since I am still without ideas to write, I can't say when my next "book" will be, or what.
Trying to find blog topics for the new year has been hard as of yet. Even though it's not until April, I am already trying to come up with a topic for the A to Z Blogging this year. The A to Z blog has a new header for this year, but no info as of yet on this year's challenge. If I do it again, this will be my third time doing the A to Z. So far my A to Z blogging themes have been the pandemic in 2021 and Forgotten TV Shows in 2022. Theme are not necessary, but many people choose to have one of the A to Z. Click above to see what the A to Z is about, if you don't already know and haven't seem my previous efforts. I have known about this challenge for years, but was hesitant to try until two years ago. Prior to that, I had seen and commented on other participants' blogs, including one that is no longer up.
I am also deciding how many more challenges to sign up for. I know I already have a lot, but books can cross over. And some I have done in the past do not appear to be happening in 2023, so I am considering branching out to others. I cannot believe the classics one I have been doing for several years is seemingly not happening. A few I've done in the past I chose to skip this year. And I may just try blogging about books.
Yes, it's today. I've never been superstitious about this date, though in my neck of the woods we have been experiencing rain and floods that is expected to continue through next week sometime. It's been hard getting out, so I mainly have being going where I need to be. There was a break from the rain last Friday and yesterday.
Again, I'm not superstitious about this date, but even after nearly three years, I still can't help thinking how many people did not seem to notice that the first week the pandemic was declared (in March 2020) included a Friday the 13th.
As for now I'm trying my best to stay safe during the rain, however long it lasts.
It looked as if this one wasn't going to happen this year, but here it is. It's another favorite so I had to do it.
I wasn't sure about signing up for anymore challenges but this one tempted me. Some of the ones I did in past years don't seem to be offered this year so I decided to try others.
February: A Long Way Gone--Ishmael Beah
September: Tatiana--Martin Cruz Smith
Doing this one again.
I am once again doing the Four Moon Reviews challenge. This one started last year.
Doing this once again.
Another favorite! Picking option 2.
