A is for Alliteration

Always an aspiring author
Prattling prose
Spinning stories
Working words into worlds
Smithing steele swords
From facts and fiction
Unique and universal
Day to day dull
Or exciting explorations and epic entertainments
Touching truth
Humanities' harbor and meeting of minds 
Sanity's summit
Beautiful books

This is my first day participating in Alex J. Cavanaugh's A to Z Challenge. April will be fun!

Very nice start to the A-Z Challenge. I love that pic too, how cute. Hope to read many more of your posts in the month ahead. :)

welcome to my world of poetry said...

An excellent start to the challenge, loved the read, and the picture was awesome. Good luck with the challenge.


Susan Fields said...

I love it! And that picture's awesome, too.

TS Hendrik said...

I love alliteration. Very cool piece. That picture is freaky awesome.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Ditto on the picture and alliteration being awesome. Good luck with the challenge. Do you have all your words/days already chosen? BTW, i also love your husband's character sketch on the right. I am hoping a friend will sketch my characters. It would be so nice to be able to look at them on paper.

That picture is stellar! Great start. Happy A2Z!

Thank you for your comment on my blog Jo. I am so inspired to have a writer thinking I can write something. I learnt something new today, Alliteration. I do it all the time and never knew its name. But it just shows, book learning does go a long way and I have none.I will learn much in this here challenge. That alone is worth everything. said...

Alliteration is a terrific tool. Thanks for the reminder and for the follow. I'm happy to join your pack.

I love using alliteration at random moments especially in Facebook and Twitter updates.

Plain Jane said...

You win best picture of the day. That is so cool.

A pleasing plethora of prolific prose. Well done, Jojo! LOVE the pic. It says it all.

Susanna said...

Haha I like this post! :) And where did you get that awesome pic with the lady hugging someone over a backdrop of words?

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm returning the favour :)

By the way, I read on your profile that you're a soon-to-be-published author :) Do you mind sharing what's the book title? I'd love to check it out if it's available where I am :)

Jo Schaffer said...

Thanks for the comments all.

@Susanna-- the working title of my YA novel is More Than Karma... still in edits. Will totally scream from the mountain tops when it goes forward. (=

Yes, please do :) I want to write a book someday too so it'll be cool to be inspired and learn from others who are doing the same.

Drop me an email or comment on my blog once it comes out please :)

I wish my words hugged me like that. Usually they're slapping me around.
