Every April, a hardy group of bloggers set forth to complete the A to Z April Blog Challenge. This involves posting a blog every day in April—except Sundays. As if posting every damn day isn’t enough, the posts have to be in alphabetical order. Meaning your topic for Day 1 starts with an A . . . aaaaaand you get the idea.
It starts out like this:
Proceeds to this:
And ends up a little like this:
For the past three years, I’ve participated with themes like Magical Words, Magical Crystals, and Creepy, Crawly Critters. Lots of fun!
This year, I’m trying something new. I’m a writer, so I’m posting a brand new story. Each day, I’ll post a short episode—averaging around 400 words. I’ll also link to previous posts and a weekly link to the Story So Far.
If you follow my blog you won’t be surprised to find that I’m writing a fantasy/Gothic tale about—what else—witches.
I particularly love compliments, but I’m also interested to see if each episode does what I want it to and if the story as a whole makes sense. And, of course, if any nasty typos or outright mistakes linger—tell me about that, too.
“A Cold Spring”
By Sorchia DuBois
Lucia murdered two-thirds of the powerful Darkmore and La Croix families with a blinding curse. A thousand years later, when Allium Darkmore and Maddock La Croix celebrate their wedding, the guests can’t help but shudder at the memory.
That’s all it is, isn’t it?

I really enjoy reading the fiction which gets created during the A to Z Challenge.
Good luck with it.

Sounds like some fun on your blog this April. I wish you well with your writing project.
Tossing It Out
Cool theme. I like the idea of a story that continues from one letter to the next. As long as the posts aren’t too long and readers can easily click on a link to the previous day’s letters/stories to play catch up, it’s a fascinating idea. You’ve already hooked me with your short blurb. I’ve bookmarked your blog and will start from the beginning. I also happen to love witch stories. Glad I found your blog. Can’t wait to read your work.

Wowzza! This sounds so scrumpilicoius that I have earmarked your blog pronto.
Lets rock April with our blogs.
Your theme is awesome! I love the idea of posting a piece of your story every day! Plus, I adore gothic themes! 😀 Have a great challenge this year!
Thanks a million! It’s been a learning experience to write–I can tell you that. Hope it delivers 🙂 Be sure to let me know what you think of it.
I certainly will! 😀
Love the blurb and the idea of a continuation story! All the best!
Thank you! It’s certainly been fun to work on it and I can’t wait to see comments.
Great! Looking forward!
Thanks so much! Be sure to tell me what you think of it.
Ooh, you are very brave. Good for you. I’ll look forward to seeing the story unfold. Blurb looks awesome.
Brave or foolhardy? Sometimes there’s a thin line. Thanks so much for checking it out. Be sure to let me know what you think.
Intrigued already – looking forward to your story.
Thanks so much! I hope you like it 🙂
Last year I followed quite a few stories during the challenge, but this year… yours the first I’ve found. And you bet I’m following it 😉
Have a great challenge!

When I find other stories, I’ll add the links on my posts. Happy Blogging and Thanks for following!!
Great theme reveal, it made me laugh. I can’t wait to read your stories. I recently decided to try writing some fantasy myself, but I am doing my research first and haven’t actually started a piece yet. Anyway, very excited to read more.
Best of luck to you with your fantasy writing! I have one son and a daughter–both grown and gone (except when they come home to do laundry. . . .or to watch tv. . . .or to eat 🙂 You certainly won’t have problems finding topics for your posts!
Wow, that sounds ambitious. Good luck with your story.
2017 A to Z Blog Challenge Theme Reveal
Well, I’ve got the story written already–though it needs a good revision before I foist it upon an unsuspecting public–so it isn’t as ambitious as it sounds. Thanks for commenting! Good luck to you, too.
This sounds great, I love a dark story!
Great! Looking forward to hearing what you think of it. Happy A-Zing.
Good times! Will keep an eye on your posts.
