Last April, I wrote travel-themed daily flash fiction for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, telling tiny tales from Venice and Bamberg and Alaska and Chelsea Physic Gardens and Johannesburg and Lausanne.
I have no idea where this year will take me, but I can't wait to get stuck in again!
Signups for the A-Z Blogging Challenge are open again. The objective is to post to your blog every day in April (barring Sundays) and to theme each post around a letter of the alphabet. Some bloggers post recipes, flash fiction, book reviews. . . whatever they can think of, provided their post topics run from A to Z as the month wears on.
I loved it last year. I asked my lovely blog readers to suggest place names, and found myself swamped with brilliant suggestions. I loved choosing my 26 destinations and researching them to find out what stories might lurk there. I even found an idea for a novel, when I sent two ghost ship hunters to the Skeleton Coast.
This year, I plan to do another fictional world tour, and maybe collect all 52 pieces into a short ebook once April is over. I'll be posting a call for place names on Friday, so please start thinking about places that could feature a story, whether they're interesting, offbeat, mainstream, quirky, dull, urban, suburban, rural or celestial.
