A-to-Z 2020 Theme Reveal: Joy
Hello! As I write this, I'm realizing that I set myself up for two reveals in a row: first the yellow wall, now my A-to-Z Theme. Perhaps next week, you will learn that I am the Masked Singer? Stay tuned!
My A-to-Z theme this year is Joy. Here's a quick recap of how that came about: each member of my critique group chooses a word for the new year to hopefully inspire and guide us in our writing. 2019 felt like the equivalent of a wet blanket for me, so I wanted to choose a word to bring good energy into my life in 2020. After some deliberation, I settled on Joy.
To help me along on my journey, my sister gave me the book Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness, by Ingrid Fetell Lee. I am working through one chapter a month and trying to implement a change or two for the better. (If you're curious, this is the reason for the yellow wall.) I call it Joy Project 2020.
Please come back and visit often during April as I work my way through an alphabet's worth of joyful things, people, and places. If you leave a comment, I will do my best to return the favor.
