The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was first held in 2010. The challenge is that we have to post every day of April, except on the four Sundays. April 1st is a theme with letter A, 2nd with letter B and so on till April 30th which will be Z themed. This year, I’m planning to do short pieces of fiction (not a series), or a poem based on a word with that letter.
“Why should I listen to you?”
“I am the one who makes the money. I work my butt off for your comforts.”
“So what I do doesn’t matter? Is that what you are saying?”
“Not as much as what I do!”
“Are you daring me to prove that I matter?”
“How can you prove what I know is not true?”
And in the battle of “I”s and “You”s, a little voice saying “We” continued to cry, unheard.
To write 26 days in a month on a theme, a moral support is quite useful I feel. This year, I’m taking the challenge along with my friend Bhavya. We’re writing on the same themes each day, and giving each other the themes on alternate days. Day 9, the word chosen by Bhavya was I, around which this story was written.
