Reflections on a Challenge

Surviving the 2019 A2Z Challenge meant 26 posts within a 30-day time frame. Adding to the difficulty was the fact that the topic for each day had to be based off a given letter of the alphabet.

Try to come up with with a post based on the letters Q, U, X or Z.  It's not that easy, especially when you have to fit a specific theme.

The theme I chose for 2019 was fantasy from A to Z and it used the settings, characters, and insights into the fantasy worlds of the Windmaster Novels and the Dragshi Chronicles with a dash of the writing life mixed in.

Reflections on the challenge and the full list of posts is on the blog. Or use the direct link.

A forbidden love. An impossible quest. The accusation of witchcraft. Can love survive?

Fate conspired to keep Iol and Pelra apart. Friendship is allowed between members of competing trading houses, but nothing more. He loves the sea and wants his own ship. She hates the deep blue and has worked too hard to allow her dreams to be sidetracked by the lure of magic.

Despite a beautiful woman on his arm every night, Leod wanted the one he couldn’t have—Pelra. His kin on the ruling council did more than put him on the fast track to his own ship. It provided him the power to fulfill his desires, or to ruin those who refused him.

Exiled to distant posts, given impossible challenges, and subject to Leod’s machinations, Iol and Pelra only have the hope of a future together to sustain them. But can their love survive the accusation of witchcraft?

Cast off and fill the sails for love and adventure. But be warned before a destiny is fulfilled, decisions must be made. Choose well.
