April A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal



It's hard to believe that the 2017 April A to Z Challenge is almost upon us!  Today is the day for the time-honored theme reveal.  Thanks to the always awesome Mina Lobo for coming up with this fun tradition.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to find links to other theme reveal posts.

This year I've been busy with having a baby in the house and story submissions, so the challenge kind of crept up on me. I'm nowhere near as prepared for things as I was last year. Still, I knew I wanted to do something fun.  I also knew I wanted to keep my posts short so people could enjoy them and move on to other blogs.

That's why I've decided to write drabbles.  Drabbles are stories of exactly 100 words.  Each little mini story will be inspired by a word starting with that day's letter.  I've done drabbles in the past, and I enjoyed it.  A couple of those drabbles even gave me ideas for longer stories.  What can I say?  Anything that gets the creative juices going is fine by me.

Are you participating in the 2017 April A to Z Challenge? What's your theme going to be?

  1. I hear you, I'm not as prepared as I was last year. Then again, last year April was a horrible month, so I hope that will be different too.

    Good luck with your challenge :-)

  2. L.G, I LOVE drabbles. It was the first type of fiction I ever wrote and the thing that got me hooked!

  3. I'm more prepared than in the past, but still no where near as far ahead as I was hoping to be. Fingers crossed I can make it through the whole month.

    Good luck with the drabbles!

  5. One hundred words is perfect. It won't tax you, either.

  7. I love reading drabbles/flash fiction, but I struggle with writing it. (It was my theme a couple of years ago). Looking forward to your stories. Best of luck with the challenge!

  13. I'm not as prepared this year either. And I'm also doing writing prompts as my theme this year. Mine will all be a single word, though my posts will be a bit longer than yours. I'm planning to make it all one continuous story and doing a 20-minute sprint for each post. I look forward to reading yours next month.
    And I can't seem to comment from my wordpress self, so you can find my blog here: heathercwright.wordpress.com
