APRIL A-Z 2012 'Approaching Zero' - "...people"
For APRIL A-Z 2012, I decided on a single theme. In fact, it's a single story, broken into 26
bite-sized chunks of precisely 100 words. Each day's instalment begins using a word starting with the current letter of the alphabet and ends with a word commencing with the letter for the following day.
I hope you like it enough to look in each day and follow the story.....!
