Already we’re at the halfway intermission in this year’s A to Z Challenge. Thank you so much to everyone who has been reading, commenting and liking my stories so far, as we take a trip round all 28 countries of the European Union, it is really appreciated. Still some big countries to visit – like Italy, France and Spain – but you can catch up on all of the stories so far here: A TO Z CHALLENGE 2018.

As always there are a wide variety of themes out there and some fantastic blogs that I have been enjoying. As I am writing Short Story Fiction, I am focusing more on those blogs, and here are some of the ones I have been enjoying for the last couple of weeks. Apologies to anyone I don’t mention here, please don’t read anything into it, there are just too many to mention everyone. Do take the time to check some of these out:

THE LAV MUSE

A continuing story of a quest through time and space involving dragons, Thor and a little old woman. Great adventure fun.

These are just a few of the blogs I have been enjoying. You can find more by going to the main page for the challenge – A TO Z CHALLENGE – and searching the Master List, where you can find everything from parenting tips to cooking, travel guides (which all make me very envious) to movie reviews, history, music, cats and dogs (of course) and loads more. Here’s to the 2nd half!
