A to Z April Challenge Theme Reveal 2020

As April draws nearer so does the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge and lots of exciting posts on loads of new sites.

I’ve been doing the A to Z Challenge since 2014 and began pondering my 2020 theme sometime last year. But in the last few months, everything has overwhelmed me – emails, regular posts like IWSG and WEP, replying to comments, and my own writing. Plus, my health issues.

So, I’m taking the simpler way out – reposting my best posts from 2014 to 2019 Challenges.

Thanks to Jacqui Murray for triggering that approach with her 2019 solution: ..a genre for every letter of the alphabet, but with one or two posts every month. Her reasoning chimed with my own thoughts about too many posts to write/read/comment on etcetera in April.

She wasn’t alone as others found other solutions to negotiating the A to Z Challenge.

However, I’m still going to post on the official A to Z days, starting with A for Assault on Wednesday April 1st, 2020. If you’re tempted and follow that link, you will discover Part One of Azure Spark, which evolved into a novella featuring my Welsh detective Sparkle Anwyl. I edited the posts into three acts, and all three will be posted during April: on the 1st, 11th, and 23rd.

I suspect not everyone got to read ‘Azure Spark’ so this will be another chance. A chance to to revisit older posts on other themes; like my 2017 History of Kanata or my 2015 The War of 1812. But I’ve yet to decide what posts to choose.

Watch this space.

All I can say is Sparkle Anwyl’s case will be complete, and Azure Spark is referenced in my WIP ‘Fevered Fuse’ – my current priority along with the more imminent and crucial release of the IWSG Anthology, Voyagers: The Third Ghost on May 5th.

V for Voyagers on April 25th?

  1. Your posts will be new for me Roland and I’m marking the blog. Good luck with the Anthology. I think I will be giving WEP a miss in April because of A to Z. I think I have bitten more than I can chew with my theme. Ha!
    But I would be back in June for sure.
    See you around!

  2. Thank you Roland. You seem to have found the sensible approach to an overwhelming blogging month. Looking forward to rereading Azure Spark and discovering your best posts from 2014 to 2019. Chin up and stay safe.

  3. Belated generic reply – sorry. Stay sensible, safe and positive, please everyone. A-to-Z will be an interesting exercise this year, and yes, a chance for people to read posts they missed……………..and for me to distract myself in troubled times.
