Survivor of April2017 #AtoZChallenge

I DID IT!

During Camp NaNoWriMo, I wrote a story a day that I tell verbally. The stories were outlined for the events and characters. April 2017 as the last Camp in April 2016, I entered the #AtoZBlog challenge to post a daily 'teaser' for the story on my blog The Story Realm. Also, the complete story posted daily at my site on Wattpad.com for my followers to read. The double challenge is the best way to link the stories and reached readers. 

The super best are the links The StoryRealm has links to Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and this blog goes to my Amazon page. I used these to send 'teaser' for the story to followers.

So written daily, a story posted on many sites for visits and comments from my followers. This is a broad critique group that meets online and gives suggestions or can ignore the story. Comments or not, I have successfully written a story daily and notified my followers all done because I was under pressure at Camp NaNoWriMo to finish a project. So, I say, take all challenges, do your best, and while working on a project 'web' publish so others can see your progress.

THANK YOU all at CAMP NaNoWriMo and #AtoZchallenge ---> I'm one who needs a challenge and a goal to feel success, especially the bonus of the certificates that state, 'WINNER' and 'SURVIVOR' which were earned and well deserved.

The Taming of Tiger

Tiger becomes extremely careful because Rabbit tricked him twice. The miller (agriculture), the second son of the First Emperor, travels milling grains with his stones for the farmers. When Tiger chases pheasants to eat (Buddhist), the miller, who looks like the Heavenly Prince, throws a millstone and hurts Tiger’s front paw. Wanting revenge, Tiger plans to eat the miller. The pheasant rings a temple bell causing Tiger to lose his power.

I re-arranged characters to fit the Korean landscape and combine the story within a story to suit my tale of ’Taming of Tiger,’ which I told in the Asian Art Galleries 2002 to 2012.
