It’s Official! A-to-Z Theme: Alliteration to Zaniness

It’s been a couple years since I participated in the A-Z Challenge held for bloggers in April, but after issuing the Alliteration challenge I got caught up in writing a couple more stories and decided it would be fun (or intensely nutty) to try one for every letter of the alphabet. If I’m going to write them, I may as well share them with you!

Also, important note to those of you who are taking the Alliteration Challenge. I’ve decided to accept submissions for the free contest through April 10th, hoping that my A-Z posts will inspire some others to give it a try. If you’re interested you can find the challenge and an example of Alliteration to Zaniness here: https://realitywithatwistbooks.wordpress.com/2022/02/25/alliterative-literature-plotted-prose-and-poetry-challenge/

    1. Thanks! Yes, it is a challenge, for sure. Good thing I started well ahead of April. I’m only up to ‘K’. Some are harder than others, and I’m determined to continue to make the stories good and as long as possible with each letter. I marked your blog yesterday and I’m looking forward to coming by to see what’s up with you, as well. 🙂

  1. April means NaPoWriMo for me, so I will be doing those prompts/assignments (one every day). I have not done A to Z in a while either and do not plan to in 2022.
    My alliterative story is almost finished (although every time I read it, change, change, change). But I do have a question…
    In the instructions you say “all alliterative words…must be unique within the piece….” What does that mean? Are you saying that I may only use them one time?

    1. Yes, part of the challenge is to see how many different words you can use in the piece. You can repeat the characters’ names, but don’t use the same alliterative word more than once, and if you can avoid derivatives from the same root word, do so. All for fun of course, so you can repeat, but those who don’t will be favored to be called out as the ‘winner’.
