Dear A-Z Challenge,This is a letter is to assure you that all is well with me, but for awhile, I wondered about my mental state since I over think everything. Once I committed to participating in the A-Z, I went through a few
Now before you say I’ve lost “it” for good, read on. This is how it went down.After I clicked the linky for the A-Z Challenge, I immediately experienced denial. Even though I willingly signed up, I had to argue with myself, “What did you do?” and “What? Nothing."
I experienced anger. I was angry, A-Z, that I let you talk me into committing to 26 days of writing and visiting with others. It sounds innocent, but I ask you, why me?
