Why Did YOU Do It?

As we approach the end of this great A to Z Blogging Challenge, I'm going to jump around a bit in my exploration of the letter "Y."  Enjoy!

Yuuto Chikuda is a Japanese businessman who is introduced to readers in Tuey’s Course. The immigrant arrived in the United States and wasted no time finding a place to work on his golf game.  He walked into the clubhouse at Prairie Winds and soon acquired the nickname YouWho from the wise guys who are the place's regulars. His presence adds to the eclectic bunch of characters who hang out seemingly every day.

I wouldn’t be doing service to the letter “Y” if I failed to mention a marketing tool that has been of great benefit to me in my writing efforts. I’ve created a video for each one of my novels and posted all of them on You Tube.  I've received some great feedback and I've enjoyed the opportunity to reach out to a potential audience in a new way. Feel free to visit my YouTube Channel link.

The final "Y" I have today is You!  If you are reading this blog post, chances are you are participating in the A to Z Challenge.  What make you decide to join in the fun?  How has the experience been for you?  I've loved the exercise.  It's been a great trip down memory lane as I review my characters and story lines.  I'd love to know your thoughts as well.
