A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal


I’ll admit it — last year when I did to the A to Z Challenge, I said “Never again.”  One of the challenges, curiously, is that being a fiction writer can work against blogs.  Blogger gurus tells us to be an expert, but writing fiction is that strange no-man’s land where that doesn’t really work.  The blog ends up appealing to other writers, but not to anyone else, and there’s only so much you can say before you start repeating yourself.  I ended up feeling burned out and frustrated at the end, rather than feeling successful that I completed the challenge.

But over the last year, I’ve finally found a theme that really is me and that other people enjoy.  So you’ll be in for an interesting ride.

Drum roll please ..

I’m going to writing about what it’s like to be in the military.

I was an enlisted soldier in the Army for about 12 years, and got out 13 years ago.  I was also deployed to Desert Shield/Storm when everyone was still buzzing about women going to war.

So this is your opportunity … what questions do you have about what it was like in the army?

  5. Wow! A topic dear to my heart. My husband has been a military pilot and I have seen this life from the other side so to say. We have had to move homes quite a bit. I am sure you have a list of what to blog about. Do share how all of you coped with your postings or assignments away from home. Thanks!
