So, the A to Z Blogging Challenge April 2013 is over. We hope you enjoyed Drabblerotic, our spicy little 100 word fics from A to Z, we certainly enjoyed writing them! :)
When we first heard of the A to Z Challenge, we weren't sure if a fiction blog would fit into the scheme of things, but it sounded like an interesting blog hop. Thus, we had to think about what an erotic romance blog like ours could do consistently for 26 posts, and the idea of drabbles came up. We thought it was a fun idea and would give our readers a bitesize piece of fiction to enjoy every day during the challenge. What we found when we began preparing for the challenge and pre-scheduling the drabbles in order to give us enough time to edit and present them, that we both enjoyed the challenge of capturing something in exactly 100 words. It sometimes takes hours to tweak a piece enough to say what you really want to say.
The Drabble Cascades, which we now run on a weekly basis. Our readers have given us seed words, and, each week, we pick one randomly from the list, post it and ask anyone who wants to join in to write a drabble inspired by that word. We've been running for 8 weeks now and we have a wonderful bunch of regulars, but, of course, we're always looking for more writers! We're also expanding into flash fiction! So, thanks A to Z, without that little push, we wouldn't be where we are with our community now.
And the Drabble Caccades will be continuing every Tuesday.
