The A-Z Challenge is bearing down on us and I need to reach out to my fellow bloggers, Tweeters and online folk for some help! Don't worry, it's the fun kind of help.
Instead of blogging about my usual unpublished-writer shtick, I've decided to write a daily piece of microfiction for April. And I'm going one step further - I have a Theme, the holy grail of every school essay on Jane Eyre and Hamlet :)
Here is my idea:
Each piece of microfiction will be themed around a place. It could be a country, a city, a state, a suburb, a village, a forest, a national park, an attraction, a street, a county . . . you get the idea. So on Day One, I may be writing microfiction set in Alice Springs, Australia, and on Day Two we might be in Belgium, and on Day Three in Camden County, New Jersey. No place is too big or too small.
But I don't want to be boring, so I'm not just going to write about the handful of places I know well. And this is where you guys come in.
I want you to make suggestions! Give me a place - as large or as small as you like. I'll read about it (this is probably going to be the most fun part for me, because I love learning about new places almost as much as I love going to them) and then I'll write a short piece of fiction set there.
I'm hoping to get some variety so feel free to suggest anywhere you think may be interesting - it doesn't have to be your home - and spread the word!
