For everyone who didn't participate in the A to Z blog series in April, Reginald Golding is orchestrating a Renegade A to Z blog post series for May. I responded to the challenge last night:
A is for Absinthe, specifically the bottle I've had sitting in my liquor cabinet for five years, but am too much of a coward to drink.
B is for "Blood Picnic", my new anthology, now on sale for Mother's Day. See blog for details.
C is for Cunnilingus. (Bet you didn't see *that* one coming, did you?)
D is for Dirk Pitt, the most overwrought (and over-written) protagonist ever.
E is for Elfquest. Remember Elfquest? I do.
F is for Friends. Remember Friends? I don't, because I never saw it.
G is for Golllum, who got a much better treatment in the movies than in the books.
H is for Hansel, locked in a cage, waiting for Gretel to rescue him. Girl power, yo.
I is for Isolation, which I need to write.
J is for the Justice League, who would get their ASSES KICKED by the Avengers.
K is for Kobolds, the most annoying monsters ever to have to kill as a 2nd level Fighter.
L is for Lucy van Pelt, that bitch.
M is for Mariachi Music, which is surprisingly danceable after you've had enough tequila.
N is for Noland. Tony Noland.
O is for Orpheus, the original tourist who ended up in the wrong bar.
P is for Perfect, which I will never be, and which I'd be happier if I stopped *trying* to be.
Q is for Quintessence, a perfectly lovely word that I almost certainly won't get to use in conversation any time soon.
R is for Regional accents, which add so much to writing when done well, and which make you want to kill the author otherwise.
S is for Sam Spade, the rootstock of all hard-boiled detectives.
T is for Tequila. (See "Mariachi Music")
U is for UberTwitter, which became UberSocial after Twitter turned asshole. (Good luck, @TweetDeck).
V is for Very. There... I said "very". Edit that, pal.
W is for Wollstonecraft, steampunk before her time.
X is for Xylologist, someone who studies forms of wood. Scrabble, anyone?
Y is for YA, a genre which will probably not welcome my novel, but what the hell, I have to call it something!
Z is for Zelda, a game I've heard a lot about but have never played. #loser
n.b. My original tweets for D and M didn't come through. As @Farfetched58 pointed out to me, "D or M are both DM commands. http://t.co/QG1Lkdn I could txt "D TonyNoland xyz" to 40404 & you'd get it." You learn something new every day, if you pay attention.
