2014 April A to Z Challenge

I was first introduced to the April A to Z Challenge in 2012, my first year of fiction writing. I took my flash fiction stories and put them into a compilation now available on Amazon for $.99: From A to Z in 10 by 10
26 letters in the alphabet provide the start of 26 flash fiction stories. Each story was written based upon a word and a photo used for inspiration. That's the A to Z.

The 10 by 10 refers to the story length. Each story was written in no more than ten sentences but with a minimum of 100 words (10x10=100).

Some tell a sweet tale, some have unexpected twists, some leaving you wanting more and some, well that's up to you!
This year I will do something similar, still writing flash fiction but my word will be a Spanish word (a nod to my new homeland of Ecuador) starting with the letter of the day. Each word that I have chosen will have the English translation/word also start with the same letter.

Beyond that I'm still open...do I restrict the length? Do I base it in Ecuador? Do I use a photo prompt like I did last time? Hmmm, time will tell - be sure to leave your suggestions before I start writing!

Oh, and I sincerely hope you will tell your friends about this and then come back to enjoy the results.

    1. It was fun to do and I hated missing it last year so excited about it. Not sure if I will put them into a book or not but I know in 2012 several others did besides me.
