Here we are! The April A to Z Challenge is almost upon us, and the time has come for us to reveal our themes! The Theme Reveal was first started by the amazing Mina Lobo, and now it's a time honored tradition.
In previous years I've always posted some kind of fiction for the challenge. It was fun, and it kept me writing. This year, however, I've decided to do something different. In the past year, I've gotten more serious about putting my work out there. I self-published three books, and I plan on self-publishing several more. I've been submitting more stories, and I even won the IWSG Anthology Contest.
With those things in mind, I've decided to offer writing advice. Each A to Z post will offer a different tidbit of advice that fledgling writers may find useful. Many of you may not learn anything new from me, but maybe you will. I know I've learned a lot over the years from reading what you have to say on your blogs.
I chose this theme, in part, to help fellow writers. I also chose it for another reason. I need to keep building my confidence. In the past I felt like I didn't have any kind of expertise to offer anyone, so I didn't try to offer much in the way of writing advice. Sometimes people I know asked me for advice on certain things, and I did my best to help them out. Now that I'm trying to do more in terms of getting things published, I feel like I need to accept that I might have something to offer. This challenge is a good opportunity to do that.
Are you participating in the A to Z Challenge? If so, do you have a theme?
