Monthly Update – May Day! May Day!

Yes, it’s the first of the month already! The April A-to-Z Challenge is over, and I can stop blogging every day and go back to my regular schedule of … blogging every day. What a relief.

ANYWAY, this being the first of the month, I have a new Hot Flash up.

I’ll keep this post short, since tomorrow’s is going to be long: a wonderful essay by Bodie Parkhurst on her food adventures with carrying and raising a son. It’s a treat!

Bodie is my guest today at Fatal Foodies, with a recipe she cobbled together out of insufficient ingredients but turned out great. It’s an inspiration to us all, I tell ya!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character has one thing he or she does without fail the first of every month. Now make that difficult.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Isn’t it nice writing with your own free will? LOL. Now that the challenge is over you may now go back to your old way of writing, how cool is that? I enjoyed the A-Z challenge though.

      Hi, Andrea! Actually, I never stopped writing my own way; I just had to figure out how to jam the day’s letter into what I wanted to do. 😉 It did seem constricting, though, somehow. I enjoy A-to-Z, but I am glad it’s finished for the year. 🙂
