Double shot today! The A to Z Challenge kicks off with A and it’s IWSG post day.
Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.
My awesome co-hosts today are Suzanne Furness, Tonja Drecker, Toi Thomas, Rachna Chhabria, Fundy Blue, and Donna Hole!
My insecurity is that there is so much happening today!!!
First day of the A to Z Challenge.

A to Z Challenge – Cult Classics – A
Movies-Music-Sci-fi Book-Bloggers-Dragon Term
One of the most mind-bending Japanese anime films you will ever watch. Released in 1988, it is considered a landmark anime movie.
Equally mind bending, this 1980 film was an adaptation of Paddy Chayefsky’s only novel and directed by Ken Russell. It marked the acting debut of William Hurt and Drew Barrymore and won two Academy Awards.
Music albums –
Ushered in new singer, Brian Johnson, with a bang – the album sold fifty million copies and is one of the highest grossing album in history.
It went Quadruple Platinum with five hits, including Would and Down in a Hole. It’s one of the most influential albums of the 90’s.
Science Fiction Books –
One of his earliest books and the first to become a movie, it established Crichton as a genre writer.
Classic mixture of fantasy and science fiction, it was adapted into a movie and a DC comic series.
