An A-Z Journey through the Challenge: T

As we may have mentioned once or twice ;), we’re both great fans of April’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. Set up by Arlee Bird back in 2009, it’s grown like topsy since that time. As neither David nor I are able to participate again this year, we decided instead to highlight one (or more) blogs each day, to encourage you to visit, to make new friends, and to find some entertainment during the current crazy world we’re in.

Some of these highlights will be old friends we’ve made during previous challenges, but some will be new. We don’t plan to stick to any theme other than maintaining a (possibly tenuous) connection to the letter of the day.


On we go with today’s letter – T

T2020
A reminder that you can find participants via the Master List, but in order not to miss any of April’s blogging riches, you may also seek participants via the hashtags #AtoZChallenge and #A2ZChallenge on Twitter.

Today, we have a Horror double feature!

No tour of the A2Z could be complete without a visit to a huge friend of this blog (he’s contributed a couple of short stories to our prompts, and also an article in our ‘Now with added’ series), the inimitable Stu Nager of Talespinning.  Stu is a Challenge veteran, and has produced several stories using the frame of the A2Z  (which I hope will one day be published – HINT HINT).  This year Stu is writing song lyrics about – well actually you should go and check them out.  It’s tricky to explain.

Tasha’s Thinkings, from the keyboard of the wonderfully productive Natasha Duncan-Drake, has also seen more than one A2Z roll by..  Natasha always finds an interesting angle on this, and this year is no exception: each day she is presenting a drabble, inspired by a vampire-related word.  Having used the H word above, to some extent this is simply a classification – there isn’t really room in a drabble to plumb the depths of horror, and many of these are much more fun than you might expect.

If you’re catching up, here’s our previous highlights …

  1. Thanks to the two of you. I appreciate the mention and accolades. As to the “hint hint”: I know, I know. Sigh. I want to say ” I WILL.” Maybe sooner than I think.

      1. Hobble you? 🙂

        As to what this year is about, it’s in my theme title. There are sleeping nightmares, and there are nightmares around us. Some are subtle, others are in your face through the back of your head. It’s a challenge I’m glad I took.

      2. Ha ha! Stu, always a pleasure and happy to sign up to a race – especially if it’s gets us all over the finishing line to publication.
