An A-Z Journey through the Challenge: W

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.

We’re on the home stretch now with today’s letter – W

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:

Writing Wings from author Roland Clarke. It was a tough decision to hold back featuring Roland to this late in the Challenge, but it did allow me to tick off one of the trickier letters of the alphabet, as I was confident that he would make it through to the end. Not only is Roland a veteran of many an A-Z Challenge, but he’s also shared his well thought-out posting plan. This year Roland is posting highlights from previous years, not only as it allows him to participate with the requirement of limited new writing, but provides the added benefit of bringing his previous work to the attention of new Challenge participants and readers. Last year, I started reading his tale of Welsh detective Sparkle Anwy (which has subsequently evolved into a novella Azure Spark), but life got in the way of my being able to complete this (and many other wonderful tales), so I’m delighted to have been given another chance to pick up the thread once again. Despite the tremendous calls on his time and energy, Roland is also a terrifically supportive member of the Insecure Writers Support Group. Do drop in & have a read.
