The A-Z storytelling is a new project of mine. The rules are simple: each section must total a hundred words, no more, no less; the highlighted word (chosen randomly at the moment) must appear in the section; it has to make sense.
I’ve decided to split the alphabet in half. A-M will tell one story, and N-Z will tell another.
The hope behind the project is to improve my ability to tell a story concisely. I have a bad habit of including unnecessary words-mainly adjectives- and repeating or overly expounding on detail. Trimming has never been a great skill of mine, but it is an important skill for a writer to cultivate.
As mentioned before, most of the words for A-M have been chosen randomly (aka, I opened my dictionary and pointed to a random definition). I’m hoping for some help for N-Z from my dear readers. I need words! Comment and suggest some, please!
The genre for A-Z is horror. I haven’t decided on N-Z…
Anyway, stay tuned for the first installment of A-Z this coming Sunday. The word is abhorrent.
