So here I am again, two years to the day that I tried the last blog challenge where I was supposed to write thirty days in a row. If I were more organized…but I’m not, so that thought isn’t even worth finishing.
When I thought about doing this yet again, I had so many self-deprecating things that I could have said about how sometimes I don’t finish what I start.

What do romance novels and blogging have in common? Both require the use of words to take the reader on a journey. Both are widely read by many, and both need to hook the reader in and not let go until its conclusion. Continue reading “UBC Day 2: Bloggily Ever After”
Challenges fill me with a wild mixture of hope and dread. The hope comes from the idea of starting something new, trying something different. I am not the most competitive person. I don’t like competitions or having to pit myself against someone else. I’d much rather collaborate instead. Continue reading “UBC Day 1: Who Needs a Comfort Zone, anyway?”
