A To Z Challenge

A To Z Challenge Theme Reveal

I think the word “reveal” is too strong. I don’t imagine anyone lurking around my blog eagerly anticipating me revealing the theme I will use in this year’s A To Z Challenge. …

A To Z Challenge: Abby

This is my opener for this year’s A To Z Challenge. In case you missed my dramatic A To Z Challenge Theme Reveal, I’m trying to focus on my sci-fi creations, The L Squad & Norman Normalson & The Normals. You can learn more about Abby by reading her bio. You can also follow along with my A To Z Challenge by following that link. That one right there. You almost missed it. Well, it’s there if you’d like to click on it. …

A To Z Challenge: Batimus

Continuing right along with the A To Z Challenge. Today’s letter is B. B as in boy, boom, barbecue, bagel, barn, barf, bacon, broccoli, bunions… There are probably more words that start with B. In case you missed my dramatic A To Z Challenge Theme Reveal, I’m trying to focus on my sci-fi creations, The L Squad & Norman Normalson & The Normals. You can also follow along with my A To Z Challenge by following that link. I’m already regretting the path I chose for this. I’m going to want to go back an rewrite everything. …

A To Z Challenge: Charlie

So, this sucks. I’m not going to lie. This was rushed and is really just a retelling of Charlie’s Profile. I’m really tired and have been distracted all day. My mind is mushy. I did a post earlier about why. Things have actually gotten more stressful since. I’m having a hard time focusing. I wanted to prepare these ahead of time to avoid this but only made it through the first two. I am a little embarrassed about posting this. It should be much better, but it has to be up today. I would normally do a few rewrites. I only gave this a quick read through. That’s the A To Z Challenge. I might not make it through this successfully. Last month would have been fine. The timing is not working in my favor. …

A To Z Challenge: Distress Call

Today’s A To Z Challenge is much better than yesterday’s. I’m more functional today, and there’s a lot of dialogue. My writing flows much better when I let the characters tell the story. …

A To Z Challenge: Fhart, Not Fhart

Not much has been written about Gremenski Fhart. He has a small role in The L Squad and a much larger role in The L Squad: Phase Two. He is Epatrusian from the planet Epatrus, which is where Norman Normalson is forced to relocate to in Norman Normalson & The Normals. There’s a street named after him on Epatrus. Today’s A To Z Challenge is F for Fhart, Not Fhart. …

A To Z Challenge: Genesis: The Captain Grek Dialogues

The A To Z Challenge is testing my alphabet skills. Who knew I would use that after kindergarten?

Today’s letter is G, which comes after F and before Q. There may be some letters in between, but I’m pretty sure Q is imminent. I’m continuing with my L Squad theme. I’m still filling in the time between the The L Squad Bios and the Vignettes and my first novel, The L Squad. I’m imagining these combined with the bios and vignettes will come together like Voltron to form a prequel tentatively title R.A.D.: Refugee Alien Defenders (An L Squad Prequel). This one is about Captain Grek and the genesis of The Refugee Alien Defenders. …

A To Z Challenge: Hitch

Today’s A To Z Challenge is H, I hope. I don’t even know what day it is. It could be Cucumbersday for all I know. Time is an illusion and Eereeeníans are immune to it. That’s my story, and you’re sticking to it. Today’s story is about Hitch. It includes some callbacks to previous A To Z Challenge stories, Abby and Charlie. This is fully functional as a stand-alone but reading the others will provide a more in-depth story. …

A To Z Challenge: Inept, Incorrigible

Doing the A To Z Challenge reminds me of Sesame Street every day. I. I is for intelligent, ink, isosceles, interrupt, internet, infidel, incest… So far, I think I’ve been pretty good at providing stand-alone stories that also interlink and provide some insight into the characters of The L Squad while filling in the time between The L Squad Bios and the books. Some stories have suffered from being rushed. This is hard to maintain every day. That’s why it’s a challenge. …

A To Z Challenge: Laura Juarez

For today’s installment of the A To Z Challenge, we’re going by Laura’s surname. This is a look into some of the anti-alien sentiment that still exists around the time of the refugee’s release from quarantine. This is a precursor to one of my favorite chapters in The L Squad. I got weird, which is fun. Here’s the world’s introduction to Laura Juarez. …

A To Z Challenge: Kip

Rushing right along, here’s K. I might not even have time for tomorrow’s. L may be late and lame or completely left out. I have to go out of town for a ridiculously rushed, busy weekend. Only time will tell if I have time. I already rushed through this one. The potential typos will haunt me. …

A To Z Challenge: Lambads

Keep up with all the amazing installments of the A To Z Challenge. Yes, that does sound kind of bossy. Sorry. It’s more of a suggestion than a command. Do it! If you want. …

A To Z Challenge N: ¡No Más!

I am officially admitting defeat in the A To Z Challenge. I alluded to this possibility in a previous post when I first started. My life is in shambles right now. I have a lot going on. I had to go out of town for a couple weekends. One right at the beginning of the challenge and last weekend. I inherited a lot of furniture, which are all upgrades. Anything that wasn’t an upgrade got donated or trashed. So, the house is chaos. …
