This year is the 10th anniversary of the A to Z Blogging Challenge, and my sixth year doing the challenge.
For those of you, who haven’t heard about it, the A to Z challenge is a challenge for bloggers to post every day in April (except Sundays). Every day (Monday through Saturday) is matched with a letter of the alphabet. On the first day, you write about a topic that begins with A, the next day B and so on.
Now the organizers suggest you come up with a theme to help you get through the challenge. The first year, I didn’t pick a theme. The next year, I did a theme of TV shows followed by characters in 2016, antagonists in 2017 and last year it was songs about magic.
The key is to pick something that you will be able to find something for each letter. There are some hard letters – Q, X and Z in particular.
As a fantasy author, I like to connect my topics to something related to writing (characters/antagonists) or fantasy (magic). This year, I have chosen to write about character flaws. It doesn’t matter if you are writing about your hero or the villain – every character needs a flaw or two (or three or more). So, from being bossy to greedy to vain, I will cover flaws your character might have.
