Along with around 1,500 other writers I have been publishing articles in April as part of a challenge to write 26 articles, each with a theme of a different letter of the alphabet, beginning at A and working through to Z with each successive day.
Even now I remember what interested me in history, in particular Ancient History, and it was going with my parents to see an Italian made Epic called The Wooden Horse Of Troy, which I found out was released in 1961. The story fascinated me, and I also had a Readers Digest book for children which had an article on Heinrich Schliemann who spent years searching for the location of Troy, before finally discovering the site in 1868.
We all love a challenge, and I decided to sign up for The A to Z Blogging Challenge, which requires you to publish an article for every day in April except for the 4 Sundays, with each article being related to the appropriate letter of the alphabet. Since today is the 1st of April, and the first letter of the Alphabet is A, guess what!
Many of us writers need a kick up the rear in order to find a reason to publish articles on our blogs more frequently, and this week I signed up for The Blogging From A To Z April Challenge, which if I complete the task should result in 26 new articles being published throughout the month of April, one for each letter of the alphabet.
