"Y" is for "You," the reader...

My theme revolves around the soon-to-be published memoir, REVIVAL, which I wrote for former professional opera singer, Donald Braswell.

Today, however, is all about YOU...


 

"Y" is for "You, the reader"

###
 

Before I wrap up the sharing of Donald’s story tomorrow, I wanted to take a moment to say thanks.

Thanks to YOU.

You know those nerves you get when you share something with the world? Well, that’s how I felt when I started the A-Z Challenge. But then I started getting positive comments and some readers returned for a second day/comment.

I said it earlier in the month, but it was a blast writing Donald’s memoir and now, with all the positive comments, I feel truly humbled.

I never went to the writing skool or wrote a book before, but YOU have made me excited first about REVIVAL and now about my current work-in-progress.

So….

Thanks for sticking with me for this crazy month that was the Challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to read the post and then write a comment.

Simply put, thank YOU.

Tomorrow, we return you to your regularly scheduled Z post :)

Mark, I'm glad to see you made it to Y. Of course, being in Hawaii, I am still on X! It is definitely a crazy month during the challenge and congrats on getting this far. Getting positive comments is always like taking an energy pill, without the side effects!

Hey human, Mazza!

Y, thank you! Arf! and here's to this idiotic challenge finishing forever!

Sorry I, or my alleged human, Gary, have not been around visiting your must-read site. My alleged human has been rather poorly.

Have fun and here's to the letter Z!

Penny :)

This is my 4th year with A to Z, and I'm always energized by the visits and nice comments from people who would not have sought me out otherwise.
