FB3X Drabblerotic A to Z Challenge 2015 Theme Reveal




The A to Z Blogging Challenge starts in just a very small number of days (there's still time to sign up) and there are loads of folks already signed up, so it should be an interesting month! :) As part of the fun, FB3X is joining in the A to Z Theme Reveal Blog Hop (for more entrants to this hop, check out the main post), where we commit to our theme for the month!

Since Drabblerotic proved popular over the last couple of years, we're running it again, and, as part of our regular FB3X feature, Drabble Cascades, we're encouraging anyone who wants to to join in with us :)



Our word theme this year is colours, so, we at FB3X are going to write you a drabble (exactly 100 words) every day of the A to Z challenge, based on the alphabetized colours in the table below. We challenge you to get your thinking caps on as well, and be inspired by our 26 words and join us every day, adding your drabbles to the list at the bottom of the post, or in the comments to the post - we don't mind where you post, we'd just like to see how the muse takes y'all. :)

    1. Thank you - I think your stories were a lot more involved than ours are going to be :) Someone else is doing fiction and colours this year as well, but being an idiot I forget who.

    2. You were kinda my inspiration when I suggested the theme to Tash, because I enjoyed your posts last year so much :)

      Although your stories, as she says, were much more in depth than ours will be.

  2. This sounds like a deep well of creativity from which to drink. Like, wow!

    Gosh, you've done a lot of prep for this, hats off.
    I'm looking forward to reading the 100 word snippets, and if time permits I'll be adding a few of my own.
