It is April and it is time for my three-month writing check-up.
I am a very goal oriented person.
I have contested that I enter regularly each week.
And then I have contests that I have found that I hope will stretch my abilities.
I thought I would give a shout-out to all the writing challenges where you can find great weekly writing opportunities, as well as let fellow writers know about a few OUTLIERS that you might want to try to stretch yourself.

Written for The Daily Post: Outlier. I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My topics for the month of March are as follows: (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
