Once again, I have joined the 2020 writer’s blog hop called A to Z Challenge—
–but with a twist. Normally, I post 2-3 times a week. This is a good schedule for myself and readers. A to Z requires six posts a week–double my norm! When I followed the rules a few years ago, it seemed to bury my regular readers with far more articles than they could read. So although I am joining #AtoZ, I’ll spread the 26 posts out over months (not one month). I’m thinking 1-2 articles a month.
Which I’ve already started, last April. I’m about half way through the alphabet but I’ll repost my A genre on April 1st, just to get things started.
Now for my theme reveal:
..a genre for every letter of the alphabet. I’ll include:
Popular books in the genre
I’ve done this the last three years. The truth is, there are just too many genres. For example, in the past, in the F genre, I’ve covered:
This year, I’ll add Fractured Fairy Tales. That’s my F topic this year. I skipped the genres I did in 2017 A to Z Challenge and 2018 A to Z Challenge. As a result, many of this year’s genres were new to me (like Kunstlerroman–who knew?). I’m amazed how much I learned researching for this blog hop.
Here are the genres I started covering last year and will continue in this year’s challenge. Links won’t work until the article is published, so be patient. I’ve noted which aren’t yet published but that–of course–will change at a rate of about one per month:
P Prose–not yet published
Q Quick Fiction--not yet published
R Regionalism–not yet published
S Satire–not yet published
T Treatises–not yet published
U sUbterranean Fiction–not yet published
V Varsity Novel –not yet published
W Web Serials –not yet published
X Xistentialist fiction–not yet published
Y YA Contemporary Adventure –not yet published
Z Zine (ezine)—-not yet published
OK. See you April 1st!
