For my kickoff post, I have the privilege of pointing you all in the direction of one of the first bloggers I ever "met" and established a blogging friendship with. Mary [A]algaard has been a wonderful blog-friend since day one. We made our connection during ScriptFrenzy several years ago when we both discovered a desire to write plays and screenplays. My screenplay went on to become the foundation for my final project in college. Mary's play went on to get a cast, a crew, and an opening night!!
Mary's posts and her comments are always heartfelt and inspiring. She starts her posts with a quote and ends with a journal prompt and/or creative challenge. I can not tell you how many times I've stopped by her blog (not often enough, I do here confess) just to be met with a quote that I desperately needed to read.
Mary, thank you for inspiring me to live my creative life to the fullest, to pursue my dreams both on and off the page, and to not worry about what anyone else thinks of my journey. I'm well on my way to living authentically and you deserve a great big bucket of thanks!
Now GO! Visit Mary over at Play off the Page. Not only does she blog about writing, she also does wonderful reviews of plays and has two other blogs that talk about food and enjoying life from the back of a motorcycle!
Happy A-Z Everyone!
