Time to beat the drums and enjoy the anticipation of a 7th Story Crossroads theme reveal as part of the A to Z Blog Challenge (http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com) that happens throughout the month of April. These are 26 postings for each of the letters of the alphabet (with rest on Sundays). We accept the challenge…again.
AND THE THEME IS…
THEME: Beating the Odds…lucky folktales around the world to brighten your day
Some say that we have had bad luck for quite a while. Still, we carry on and always work on having all turn out. Are you truly alone in this endeavor? Are we entitled to some great revelation, treasure, or relationship for all to work out in the end?
And who will be outwit in the end?
Death? Pirates? Liars? Thieves? Insane Members of Royalty? Dragons?
And so much more.
Curious? We would be lucky for your readership.
While you enjoy this blog, Story Crossroads has been “lucky” to offer a hybrid festival – yes, virtual and in-person options – and would be honored for you to join us. Save your spot and see the schedule here: http://www.storycrossroads.org/festival
