An A-Z Journey through the Challenge: V

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 – V

V2020
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.

For today, I’d like to add:

Loose End of the Red Thread is the blog of author Varadharajan Ramesh who we met when he first took part in the Challenge in 2018, when he showcased his fabulous ‘Tales with a Twist’ series of flash fiction. The tales were a great read, being a mixture of funny and (to use his own words) downright evil. Despite being under tremendous pressure with our own Challenge, Varad’s was one of a small number of blogs I rushed to check daily. This year his focus is on a new genre – Horror. But … it’s horror with a twist, for Varad’s tales will feature Indian mythology and folklore, opening our eyes to a culture of monsters and evil spirits most of us have never come across before. Enjoy!
