And so another A-Z Challenge has come to an end. There've been some great blogs this year - as always. To find those I've particularly enjoyed this year, please click on the Great Blogs list on the lower right of this page.
My plan this year was to write a few short bits of fiction, each of them inspired by the classic jazz I lisened to growing up. Here's a speedy link to all my Challenge posts in case you've missed any:

I have one or two favourites, but do you have any thoughts on which story I could develop into something longer?
