A to Z Challenge

Okay, now I know what to do.  I found the rules on Rachael Harrie's website here.  
Here's how it will work:

For those of you participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge (and those of you who are not), write a short story/flash fiction/poetry/other writing in the comments section of this post. The entry should be based on this picture and should be less than 150 words.

In keeping with the A to Z Blogging Challenge, the entries should also comply with the following, based on the day you write your entry (for consistency, we'll be working in US EDT time):
  • Sunday April 1 - base your entry around the letter "A"
  • Monday April 2 - your entry should contain the words "brackish" and "bend"
  • Tuesday April 3 - begin and end your entry with a word beginning with the letter "C"
  • Wednesday April 4 - include four words starting with the letter "D" in your entry
  • Thursday April 5 - base your entry around the letter "E"
  • Friday April 6 -  your entry should contain the words "flight", "forlorn", and "fog"
  • Saturday April 7 -  begin and end your entry with a word beginning with the letter "G"
  • Sunday April 8 - free choice - no requirements for your entry. Alternatively, for an added challenge, see how many words beginning with the different letters of the alphabet you can include
  • Monday April 9 - include four words starting with the letter "H" in your entry

I hope you have fun taking part in my contest! Feel free to enter as many times as you wish and on as many days as you wish - the only requirements for you to claim a prize are that you are following me, and that you include your email address in your entry if it's not already included in your user profile. And I'd love it if you'd tweet or facebook or Google+ the contest or mention it on your blog.

Hey, K. S.,

I won't be participating in the A-Z challenge. How do I remove my link?

Thanks. :)

Hi Sarah: I just read your message. I didn't realize they were two different, and I am following Rachael's plan.
