Zelda - A to Z Blogging Challenge

Blogging from A to Z Challenge
April 2015
This month I will be participating in the “Blogging from A-Z Challenge

What is it?

I will be Blogging everyday beginning on April First with a topic themed on something with the letterA, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until I finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.   The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.

My theme will be short fictional (well mostly fictional) stories about women.  Each woman’s name will begin with the appropriate letter of the alphabet for that day.

Zelda has been lurking, only coming out of the shadows three times.  We first meet her in “Hanna’s Ring.  The next time she makes an appearance is in the story titled  “Kate - The Eyes of The Swan.”
And finally she thwarts “Xena” by outbidding her at an auction.

“Who exactly is Zelda?”

I’ll let her speak for herself.


Hello my darlings.  I have been waiting all month for you.  I knew you would eventually show up and I knew it would be today. 
You wish to bargain with Zelda, heh?  
I have been generous with pearls from my chest of storied treasures, no?  
Now my dears, you must leave me one of your own. 
I will place your tale into my enchanted box to live along with the others.  
For I see into you with curious eyes,  hear your voice with caring ears and touch your soul with tender hands. 
Your story belongs to me now. 


  1. A fitting end to the challenge!! You did very well with this; like I said before so enjoyed reading your stories you shared here :) You need to colloborate them somehow together :)


    1. Thank you for sticking with me. The challenge was great fun!

  2. Zelda the story-keeper, huh? These were enjoyable, well-written pieces. Glad we met up so I could experience them.

  3. Zelda sorta sounds sinister...In my head I hear the witch...I'll get you my pretties. lol
    Enjoyed visiting during the challenge and hope to continue to do so after it's completion. Congrats on finishing.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I agree Zelda does have a little bit of witch in her.

  4. I agree with Sandy - I don't think I'd like to meet Zelda on a dark night!! A fine finish to your Challenge and it's been a real pleasure reading all of your tales. Hey, we did it!! Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. Yay! I am proud of us! Thank you for your kind words!

  5. She's the author? Have you been watching Once Upon a Time?

    1. Well “she” does seem to know a lot about them. I don’t watch “Once Upon a Time”, but I have certainly started a few of my stories with that beginning…Once upon a time…

  6. You get a gold star for creativity!

  7. Zelda sounds like the consummate writer.

    Congratulations on completing the Challenge of 2015. You have put forth a worthy effort.
