April A-Z Challege: Searching for Prompts

 

As some of you may be aware, I am taking part in this years A-Z April Blogging Challenge.

In keeping with the theme of my blog, I have set myself the task of writing and posting a short story each day, with a word count of 500-1000 words. I know this is quite a big ask, and I am feeling quite intimidated by it to be perfectly honest, but I have committed to it now and so I’ll give it my best shot!

In my previous post, I asked some of you lovely readers for word prompts because I’d love to involve as many people as possible. So far I’ve had some quirky, baffling, intriguing and downright intimidating suggestions from the likes of Kate, Niki, Viki and my partner and I intend do go with all of them. Thanks so much for those, ladies!  I’d love to know if anyone else could suggest some words for me to use now that the fated starting point is approaching.

My words so far:

A for ABANDONED

B for BOMBASTIC

C for CONCUBINE

D for DRAGOON

E for EFFERVESCENT

F for FRAGILE

G for GARGOYLE

H for HESSIAN

I for INKLING

J for JACKASS

K for KARMA

Then it jumps to:

X for XENOPHOBIA

Y for YURT

Z for ZANY

 

Now, I’m sure you’ll agree that those are some great prompts! I can already feel the creative cogs turning, and I’d love to get some more in there before the Challenge begins. So feel free to bombard me with any and all suggestions!

Good luck to everyone else who has decided to take up this challenge, and I’ll look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

  1. Hi Adam,
    I think you’ll have problems writing about a YUTE. The word I gave you was YURT (alt spelling is YOURT). You’ve got 3 days left before the BrainAche begins. Good luck!

  2. I’m participating in the challenge too. I’m trying to come up with ideas for all the letters. I’m probably half way through. You have a great list so far. Xenophobia is rife in South Africa at the moment. I guess I’ll get started after I finish binge watching reality shows. 🙂

    • Cool, I’ll be sure to check out your progress throughout April ☺
      Yeah, it’s certainly getting there!
      I have heard that, it’s such a terrible thing to be happening but it’s also difficult to get rid of.
      Haha well, good luck with it once you drag yourself away!

      • It seems to have calmed down a bit, with politics and the upcoming elections taking center stage. I’ll be checking your progress too. This is the first challenge I’ve signed up for. I post every day, but it’s a bit more difficult when you have to follow rules. At least I have the first week sorted. Good luck.

    • A great suggestion! 😊 I’ve already had a suggestion for S, unfortunately, but I’ll try to include that word somewhere anyway! Thank you for commenting 😊
