- Spring is finally here. My budding roses are proof, and so are my allergies. Zyrtec, I bow down to you...
- Soccer and softball have taken over my evenings and weekends. Love being outside!
- I'm assistant coach for my daughter's softball team, and I coached my first game last Sunday, solo. We lost, but I had loads of fun.
- My manuscript is back from line edits. Another round of proofing and I'm done.
- A-Z is over. I'm both elated and deflated. (A summary is down below.)

This was my first time participating in the A-Z Challenge, and I had loads of fun. My theme was: "A glimpse into the lives of young fictional characters." This means I created a new character for every single letter. It was hard work. I didn't prepare. I had decided on the theme while vacationing in Spain, on March 31st. I wrote Alvaro Speaks and I never looked back.
I won't lie, there were times where I thought I would give up because I fell behind. The trip home from Spain, getting back into the routine, and just catching up on things that were put on hold for vacation costed me to fall back a couple of days. On the 10th, I decided to combine G, H, and I into a single entry and I create a cute story of three brothers getting in trouble. I felt rejuvenated. I was determined to finish. And when I did, this was me:
I want to thank all of you who read, shared, and commented on my stories. You guys totally rock!
Check out all of my shorts. Each character is immersed in a different world. You'll love them all, I promise!
