#AtoZChallenge The Letter Z

A Thirty-Word Story





Here is the story, in its entirety.  🙂  I ended up making a couple of “post-production” edits and I think the final word count came to something like twenty-eight.  Thank you for indulging me, and congratulations to everyone on finishing the A-Z Challenge!

Alex Bought Corrine Diamonds Every February, Gladly.  He Instinctively Just Knew Loving Miss Nevada Obligated Purchasing Quality Regal Stones; Till, Ultimately, Valentine’s Day Waned its eXtreme Yearly Zeal.


Recently I’ve learned that many participants in the #AtoZChallenge have also been making their own lists of blogs they’re following and putting them into their posts, as a way to “spread the word.”  I’m a bit late to this, but I thought I would put up my personal 2017 Challenge Collection, the blogs I’m following.  I will be posting these to my blogroll once the Challenge is finished, like I did last year.  🙂

    1. Oh no! He didn’t stop buying them on Valentine’s Day! He bought them until Valentine’s Day stopped being such a big deal! I suspect eventually when couples have been together for years and years, when one of them asks, “So honey what do you want for Valentine’s this year?” the other will respond, “A nap, I just want to take a nap!” lol. 🙂

    1. LOL Oh no worries, he will buy her diamonds until she’s sick of diamonds or Valentine’s Day, whichever comes first!

      Yes, I’m pretty sure I’ll be back next year! I already have a couple of words brewing! 🙂


    1. Thank you so much!

      I think your six sentence stories, and the way you wove them all together was such a work of art. 🙂 I would never be able to do anything like that. 🙂

      Yes, it’s great to be done! But I do have some catching up to do as I was away from the blogosphere for a few days, think of all the great wrap-ups that await me!

  1. Great work, kept us guessing until the end and gave us a contemplative ending to think about. Glad to have ‘met’ you on the challenge. Look forward to following your blog 🙂
