A-Z Challenge Alliteration Avalanche

     I am anticipating this adventure because I love alliterative phrases and sprinkle them throughout my writing. I actually will attempt, if I am able, to accommodate as many alliterative words in my posts all the way through z, which may cause some apprehensive apoplexy along the way.


     I am often acutely addled, but to aid and abet my alliterative aptitude, I have compiled a list of words appropriate for all my needs. Word lists for writing alleviate angst when searching for that specific actual word choice that will avail you of the artistic meaning that your writer's soul agonizes for.  I must admonish all who venture into writing that aha moments don't amble on the page by accident. The author who avails himself of artificial and ass-backwards aberrations in plot and characterizations will discover the aggravated and apathetic reader ready to hurl the book across the next abyss.

Very clever, and I enjoyed reading. Thanks for giving my best laugh of the day for April Fools, and without trying to trick anybody!

Whoa! Admirable attempt. I'm using alliterative two word topics in my A to Z. You're going for the gold in yours. Have a good time with it. I love alliteration despite my somewhat controversial post last year saying that alliteration was stupid. Some of my poet readers missed the joke and thought I was being serious.


Contrary to my usual practice of subscribing to comments, to save time during challenge I will not be doing so during April. If you want to respond to my comment , please email me directly from your email notification for the comment.
Thanks.

haha! Nice job! I did this last year. Was fun, but tough! especially toward the end. Good luck!

Talli Roland said...

Wow! I'm in awe at all of your A's! Well done!

J.L. Campbell said...

Good job!

Nate Wilson said...

I admire your avid application of A's. I'd also considered attempting alliterative action throughout April, but then X reared its ugly head in my head, and I reneged. Luckily, I had other ideas to fall back on.

Nevertheless, I applaud you, Jeanne. Awesome.

This post must have taken a lot of thought. Well done! Most of my alliteration attacks happen by accident so I usually need to "fix" them.
