This month I'm exploring the "Behind the Scenes" of being a writer. As a twenty-four-year-old author of two traditionally published books, I have a ton left to learn, and some funny stories to share.

(Re-posting my comment with clickable link)

Hi guys, my name is Arpan and my blog is Tales of Unusual Strangeness. It's my second A to Z challenge and while there's no special theme, all my stories are bound together by the odd happenings that take place within them.

The first post tackles a fairly mundane morning routine. But as you'll see, things aren't quite what they appear to be.

Tales of Unusual Strangeness - Ant Farm.

CRD said...

Hi. My name is Christopher D'Souza, and I'm known in Blogosphere as CRD. I'm from Mumbai, India. I've named my blog 'Scripted in Sanity', but you might also read it as 'Scripted Insanity'. Take it either way, I have no complaints.

I write on a wide array of topics, and in various genres - short stories, poetry, anecdotes, humour, socio-political topics, music, sports, history, and sometimes even downright childish stuff. I sometimes also write weird short stories. Accordingly, I am not really following a specific theme in this year's A to Z Challenge.

My 'A' post is titled 'All Apologies'. It is a poem from the PoV of an apologetic husband, who is acknowledging the fact that more often than not, he is not able to do as much as the lady of the house.

Hope you like it.

Here it is -> ALL APOLOGIES

Instead of a theme, I'm writing a month-long poem and starting each segment with the corresponding letter... The poem is called "A Love Affair, From A to Z"
A Love Affair, From A to Z: "A" - "Always"

Thanks A to Z team for another year.

I am reposting my link to today's post. A kind soul let me know that my link was not working. It did work for me originally and now I do not see the comment so I can fix it. Apologies if this is a duplicate, but I want everyone to be able to read my post!

I'll just put the URL this time.

Theme:The Very Many Emotions of Motherhood
A for Attachment
LINK
Over the years, as we grow, we learn to survive without the physical presence of those with whom we grew up with – our parents, siblings and old friends. And then arrives these tiny beings into our lives with whom we form new connections, a little stronger than anything before. In years, the attachment becomes so binding that we don’t get a chance to realize its tenacity. And one day, when life gives us a chance, it feels shattering.

Here is the link for my post: https://christineocheallaigh.wordpress.com/2017/04/01/atozchallenge-day-1-letter-a/

I tried putting the badge for today in my post (since I don't really have any other spot on my page I can put it...I tried making it the Featured picture or whatever it's called on WordPress, but it wouldn't show up...it showed up at the top of my post before I hit Publish, but refuses to show up in the finished product on the screen...I know absolutely nothing about code writing, have no clue how to make it show up, and your instructions on how to do clickable links and all that might as well be in Klingon for all I understood it. I really don't know why it won't show up on the page everyone else can see when it shows up just fine on my Edit page...I at least put the #AtoZChallenge in my post title...

I'm in. I'm in. For 26 days, I'll write my murder scene. I get killed with a different weapon every day - based on the letter of the alphabet, of course. But good news: like Wile E Coyote before me, I'll rise again in the evening to get polished off the next day. Great fun.
