My A to Z theme is fencing and swordplay, focusing mainly on fencing terminology, but with a few favorite movie fencing moments thrown into the mix too. Why: I love fencing and swordplay!
Warning: Today's post is a little long, especially in the extra word section. Just skip it if you need to run!!
Conversation: the back-and-forth play of the blades in a fencing match, composed of phrases (phrases d'armes) punctuated by gaps of no blade action. (I love this definition of a conversation)
Chest Protection: gear required for women fencers.

There are different types of chest protection, but I prefer the full chest protection like this:
BTW: Guys are required to wear the usual protection for contact sport. (And I don't look pointedly when I tell guys that)
More fun C Fencing terms:
Insecure Writer's Support Group was started by the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh to give each of us time to share our insecurities, or our way of dealing with those insecurities, or some positive inspiration with each other. It's a safe group, a loving group of bloggers who support one another through the trials and the triumphs of the writing life.
IWSG - I almost forgot, oops.
Despite many reminders, I almost forgot to write my IWSG for the month, and . . .that's the point. Life has been Crazy, blessedly busy, and I'm had to re-learn how to be Creative about Carving out time for writing and blogging. I say re-learn because finding time is a struggle I've faced before this, and I know I can Conquer it.
How do you Creatively Carve out time to write in your day and Conquer the evil twin challenges of distraction and "busy-ness"?
