Congratulations to all my fellow #BarAThoners on finishing the challenge!
It was my first #BarAThon Challenge and not only was it interesting but also challenging. As per most challenges, I discovered some great new blogs and made a few more blog friends. During the challenge, I had the pleasure of reading a number of other Barathon participant blogs and if you are curious, I encourage you to search #Barathon in Twitter.
Initially, the theme and prompts took me for a loop in the beginning, especially “Lord of the Files” but I simply wrote whatever came to mind and tried to run with it – some typical tropes, some twisted fiction with not-so-happy-endings and a mélange of both…
If you missed them, here is a recap of all of my seven #BarAThon posts:
The Fault In Our Stares – On her way out of town, a woman sees her ex-boyfriend with his new girlfriend;
Life of Pie – This is a random list of things about moi that you really never needed to know;
Of Ice and Men – A teenage girl has her latest dreams dashed by her stepmother again;
War and Pieces – This story will make you think twice about the “friends” you trust and with whom you travel;
Lord of the Files – A geeky girl with a crush on her co-worker is so deep in the woods that she can’t see the trees;
Suns and Lovers – A woman finally finds a real man at the wrong time in her life;
Call of the Wind – Tap, tap and delete! This is an important lesson for all women on how to treat yourself as a priority when he is choosing to make you an option.
