Short Stories

A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal

During the month of April I will be participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I joined in on the fun last year and wrote all about the Isle of Man and The Manx. Today, I am revealing my theme for the month. But first, a little about what this is.

The premise is to start blogging beginning April First with a blog topic themed on something with the letter A,Β then on April second another topic with the letterΒ B as the theme, and so on until the finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letterΒ Z. We skip every Sunday so we can all take a quick break and get ready for the next week.

My theme for this year will be little different from last year. I will take you A to Z with short stories. Recently, I became interested in writing short stories and have done a lot of research into the methods of writing them along with entering contests and making submissions. There is more to a short story than a quick read. My posts will cover everything from A, “All about a Short Story”, to Z, “Zebras Tell No Lies”, a short, short story.

During April you can expect to find a mix of stories along with posts on the research I have done. Readers will find the stories themselves to be the best part, so I will focus on those more than anything else.

Hang on to your virtual seats! It’s going to be a busy month.

  1. Sounds like fun. Short stories are really more than a shorter form of novels. They have their own rhythms and their own strategies. I learned to write short stories before I ever wrote a novel. It was kind of intuitive, while Ihad to learn how to manage a novel.
    So I’m interested to see how you’ll handle the methodes of writing a short story πŸ™‚

    • I’m actually writing something related to short stories everyday. I am going to try to make the majority of the posts a short story of some kind though. πŸ™‚


  2. I love the theme of short story posts so I look forward to visiting in April. I’m tackling what will be a single story for my A to Z – it might be 16,000 words when I’m finished. Not long enough for a novella, but too long for some short story guidelines.


    • Cool! I considered doing Flash Fiction, but decided to keep to shorts. I’m thinking I’ll have a post or two on flash though. You can’t really have one without a little of the other. Right? πŸ™‚
