A-Z Challenge: Z

Z is for ZEDEK!!


Zedek is a fairy. He is Sia's best friend. His role is like the 'older brother.' Despite the fact that Sia can really take care of herself (I mean...come on, she's an assassin!), he's always there for her! Like all my fairies, Zedek has huge wings. I think I seem him mostly with red and orange tones. He has long brown hair, and is basically Dragon (The king of Talithia) right hand man!


Because I haven't written much on Sia's story, I'm not sure how his role plays out, but let's just say, I'm certain Zedek gets into some trouble. lol.


There you have it! The complete A-Z Challenge all focused on my books!


Thanks to everyone who has kept reading! I promise after school I will be a better blogger and come and visit everyone! This week is the first week of dead week, and next week is finals and graduation. I will have pictures!! :D


May is also the start of Blog Me Maybe Blogfest! hosted by Sara McClung!


This one requires that you post everyday and has a theme to this post! I already have my Tuesday slots filled, but if anyone is interested in guest blogging, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to have you!


Here are the rules for Blog Me Maybe!


Mondays: May I tell you something about writing?
This can be anything writing-related. A post on craft. A post on your process. A snippet of your WIP, if you like to share. A book on craft that you want to recommend. Things you struggle with. Things you rock at. ANYTHING at all! 


Tuesdays: May I tell you something about myself?
Pretty self-explanatory :) Share something about yourself that your followers might not know. Or maybe they do. It doesn't matter--this is just so people who read your blog can get to know you a little better. 


Wednesdays: May I ask something about you?
Ask your followers something about themselves. 


Thursdays: May I tell you something about someone else?
Make this post about someone else. A writing friend. A critique partner. A person from history who's fascinating. A character from a book. Anyone you want. :) Have a guest poster. Give an interview. Get creative! Just let the spotlight shine on someone else. 


Fridays: May I share something funny?
Fridays = the starts of weekends! BOOYA. Reason to celebrate and laugh on it's own--plus, who doesn't want to see something amusing after a long week?


Sounds amazing! So, if anyone wants to come guest post, just comment or e-mail me at Ashley.M.Nixon-1@ou.edu 


Also, I am going to participate in...*Drumroll*




YAY!! 
This one is hosted by the wonderful Alex J. Cavanaugh! This is exactly what it sounds like, lol. First Loves. You post about first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. I've had mine written for about a month, lol. SO EXCITED!


Next, May 7th is the day we can write a REFLECTION post on A-Z challenge! Sounds great, doesn't it? It was definitely a challenge, but a wonderful one at that!


Also, don't forget if you are in the Writer's Support Group, our post is due this Wednesday!


lol. SO. MANY. POSTS. 


Now, I enrolled in my nine hours of graduate classes!!! 
Here is what I'm taking: 


Information Sources and Services
Information Users in the Knowledge Society
Information and Knowledge Society


Okay...Now, I'm not sure how interesting these will be, but I have hope. lol. I get to take one in my final year (Spring 2014) called Young Adult Literature because my focus is Middle Grade and Young Adult! Two of these classes are online, hope I can manage that! Never had online classes before.


I also had a job interview on Friday! I hope I got it! The people who interviewed me were wonderful and she said the interview went well herself! Now for the wait. 

So many things going on! Did I mention I also have to move? Yep. And Peru is in one more month! Cannot wait!

Okay, thanks for listening to my updates. Join some blogfests!!

  3. I really enjoyed reading about your characters this month. I don't think I'll be participating in either of those blog hops. I don't think I could do a post a day again any time soon.

  4. This was my third blogfest (in 7 years of blogging), and I've learned that they are both incredibly fun and draining. I'm going to stick to my one/two posts a day.
