This is the perfect week to combine two hops into a single post: Reflections on the #atozChallenge for 2016 and Memories for the May #InkRipples.
|The idea people: Katie, Kai, and Mary|
The idea of #InkRipples is to toss a word, idea, image, whatever into the inkwell and see what kind of ripples it makes. We provide the topics and will be blogging about them on the first Monday of the month. You can spread your own ripples by blogging about the topic any day of the month that fits your schedule.
Memories is the topic for May's #InkRipples. And what better memory than the newly concluded #atozChallenge. Here are some of my favorite memories from this year's AtoZ. And they're alphabetical. Once I've mastered a theme, I stick with it.
I loved Alex Cavanaugh's Origins of Science Fiction Terms. Some of these terms have been around for quite a long time. The X Gun (X-Beam Projector) 1937!
Bish Denham's Shakespearean Insults and Compliments had me in stitches and sometimes scratching my head. "WARTHOGS bow to the pond scum of your passage way." That's a compliment BTW.

Pat Garcia took us on a beautiful journey with a Child and a Prophet in her blog, Everything Must Change.
I felt as if I'd traveled to some of the most gorgeous places in India after visiting kalapanaawrites every day.
Writing in the Crosshairs never failed to make me either laugh or think or both at the same time. Roland, Freud and Twain were unbeatable conversationalists.
Yvonne Ventresca kept me sane with excellent ideas for being productive while writing.
There are more, but I'll have to post about them another time or this will be one long post.
