The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out, this challenge basically requires 26 posts in 26 days based on 26 letters of the alphabet, one post beginning with each letter during the month of April, with Sundays off for good behavior.
Since April 1 falls on a Sunday this year, that will be the day we start with A. Whether you go with a theme or freestyle, your post must match the letter of the alphabet for that day. Add your name to the list, grab the badge in the right sidebar, and when the Challenge begins, start by visiting the blog immediately after your own. Set a goal – we recommend ten blogs a day, more if you like!

Since I’ll have hosting duties, I’ll pre-schedule at least some of the posts this year.
So I’m asking you, my blogging audience, to challenge me with an interesting picture
that you would like me to write on, and drop me story starters, each sentence/phrase beginning with a different letter
(i.e. the first word of the starter must start with a different letter, from A to Z). You can do this in the comments on this post. I’ll keep sending out this call till I have 26 pictures and 26 prompts that really challenge me!
Of course, when I post each prompt during April, I’ll link to you and explain why I chose it. You may also mail me the pictures and story prompts at atozstories at gmail dot com. You need not be participating in the A to Z Challenge to challenge me with either a story starter, or a picture, or both. The more the merrier! Last year I had asked for word prompts, and I got loads to choose from! This year, I’m taking it a step further.
This challenge is a great opportunity to discipline yourself and grow as a blogger, and make new friends – come join us by signing on the linky list below:
