The Blogging A – Z April Challenge and what I’m using it for.

So you remember how I mentioned my interest in D & D and was probably going to use it to work up a fantasy story.

Well, I think I’ve got another tool to use.

I came across The Blogging from A – Z April Challenge. You blog every day, excepting Sundays, about subjects that start with each sequential letter of the alphabet.

Some use a theme for the whole month and I was leaning toward doing that. But could not think of what theme I would be interested in that would cover all 26 letters.

And then today it hit me. Someone had done a theme in the past of fictional characters and I thought about using that. Then the idea formed to do elements of that fantasy idea.

Now, the fun part is I have no ideas about plot or world type or anything. Not beyond the anti-hero aspect I mentioned.  So these entries will be highly cliche and derivative of fantasies I’ve enjoyed (Dragonlance and Drizzt Do’Urden to name a couple).

It will be done in broad stokes and who knows how much Mary Sue. But it’s a start to getting ideas down and workable.

Fingers crossed.

  1. Hi 🙂

    I found your blog on the A to Z Challenge site. I’m doing the challange for the first time and I’m a bit scared because I feel like there’s so much to do and so little time for doing it.

    I think I’ll go for Roating Twenties as a theme, since I’m writing a story set in Roaring Twenties Chicago.

    Let’s see.

    Good luck with your theme 🙂


    1. I know. I think I’m going to try and do some blogs ahead of time and see if I can schedule posting them.

      The Roaring Twenties sounds like a great theme. The visual of that got me wondering if there’s a way to rope my Pinterst account into this.

      And there are always the Sundays to catch up.

      Good luck.


  2. Passing from the A to Z . . . I have done many A to Z’s and it does make sense to be well prepared in advance or it can just become a bit too pressured and is no longer fun. Good Luck with your ideas

    1. Thank you. It promises to be an experience, especially given the newness of my blog.


    1. I’ve only read the first two and started the third long ago. A friend of mine actually met R.A. Salvatore and I believe has all of them so can borrow from her.


  3. Just stopping by from the A to Z list.

    This is my second A to Z. And the first was an adventure. I wrote a 14k story that had words from’s. Word of the day in it. Let’s say I didn’t realize the challenge until it happened, but I finished it.

    This year shouldn’t be as stressful.

    So I hope to see you there and have fun. Good luck.
