A to Z Blog Challenge 2011

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog, left comments, gave encouragement and/or helped implement the 2011 A to Z Blog Challenge. It tapped my creativity. It became a mental obstacle course. I loved every minute of it and I've already been pondering how I'll approach it this year.

The A to Z Challenge is a great way to make connections across the web. And my first year of participation resulted in a book: ABC Book of Literary Devices. The Kindle version is up and running. The print version is in the proofing process.

For a very affordable price ($0.99 for the digital version, $5.95 for the print version, which provides workbook space), it guides users to becoming a better writer in 26 days. Not only that, but they also have a short story to show for their efforts at the end. For each letter of the alphabet, a literary device is presented with a definition in simple terms, an example from published literature and an author example. Plus space is provided for the reader/writer to practice.

The ABC Book of Literary Devices is an excellent tool for individual writers looking to improve their craft or for classroom language arts/English teachers to use with students.

Thank you to all of the 2011 A to Zers. I couldn't have done it without you.

Glad you benefited from last year's Challenge! Don't forget to grab the A to Z badge - we have an assortment of designs this year.

Thanks Alex,
I'm eagerly anticipating this year's A to Z Challenge. I have so many ideas for what I want to do with it, but I haven't narrowed them down to "THE ONE BIG IDEA." And yes, I'll be grabbing my A to Z badge.
