|A WORLD OF CRIME|
Arlee Bird’s A to Z Blogging Challenge is a stimulating, month of April dare for bloggers who want to challenge themselves to write twenty-six blog posts, one for each letter of the alphabet. Because I write, read, and breathe mystery novels, as a nod to this widely-encompassing genre, my theme for the challenge is:
A WORLD of CRIME
So many of the alphabet letters offer obvious choices (a for autopsy; b for ballistics; c for crime; d for dagger) that I double-challenged myself to skip the more evident of choices for each letter and discover words, topics, names, or locations that require a bit more original thought (almost as though I were creating titles for Sue Grafton’s mystery novels.)
The second half of my double-challenge was to confine my blog posts to:
Exactly 200 Words Each
As of 10:08 a.m. March 23, eleven hundred seventy-eight people have signed up for this alphabet tour, and time will not permit anyone to read every post. My shorter posts should help to keep everyone moving along.
While #posts of 140 @characters might be a bit too challenging to write, I plan to visit all the blogs of tweeters who use the hashtag #atozchallenge.
