2015 October Platform Challenge courtesy of Writer's Digest

     October is my favorite month of the year.  Even in Texas, the days become cooler, and the colors of fall begin to spark.  The festivities of Halloween lurk just around the corner. (Not to mention all the candy.)  This October has one more treat for me:  a new challenge at Writer's Digest.

     My first completed chapbook of poetry came courtesy of a challenge by Robert Lee Brewer with WD.  I learned a great deal and enjoyed the process.  So, when I found out there was a current challenge in place, I couldn't wait to join.

     Mr. Brewer issues a daily challenge for writers wishing to develop or improve their platforms.  A small task is assigned each day that is meant to make us think about our goals and motivations for ourselves and our writing.  As a new writer still working to find her voice and confidence, I am looking forward to applying the information to this blog.

      Stay tuned and check back to see what he comes up with for this writer.  One more reason to love October!
