A to Z Challenge 'Z'

 A to Z 2017 Theme: Rocks to Throw At A Hero Who Is Up A Tree!

Robin Carr, a well-published author describes a talented author as "someone who chases her hero up a tree and then throws rocks at her."

The end of the challenge.

It only seems right that rocks slung today should begin or END with Z.  Don't you agree?

When ever I glimpse a 'Z', the slash of Zorro flashes into my mind, or I see a cute stripey Zebra chatting up a Giraffe in Zambia.

I'm not admitting to any form of  Zoanthropy, but can you just imagine yourself wearing those Zany stripes and sharing a watering hole with lions and cheetahs? Talk about a Zillion Zaps of shivers up and down one's banded back! Still, better than a Zoo, right?

What about Zorro and his Zestful disdain of Zealous Governors of the Territory of California?
Having to Zip and ZigZag from rooftop to rooftop in his black Zoot suit and cape?

Can you imagine his head abuzZ every time the writer forces poor handsome Zorro to hurdle from  Presidio walls onto a hard saddle?   Talk about a Zing! It's a wonder he ever had a child!

The Greeks zoned in on throwing Zeus at many unsuspecting heroes. Talk about a Zygomatic slap; that god could Zip in and administer a sharp one or a Zillion, depending on his mood and the last time he 'got some'!

We've come to the end of my suggestions for rocks to throw at your hero after you've written her up a tree.

Time for a quiZ beginning with 'A'! 


  1. 'z' is for 'zenophibic' (see donald dump)

  2. I am so impressed by this. The letter z is not an easy one!

    1. Z was actually easier than Q. The challenge was so much fun.

  3. Congrats on making it through the grueling A-Z Challenge! Well played, Toni, well played.

    1. It was fun. Can't wait to do it next year!

  4. Toni, I didn't know there was going to be a quiz? CongratZ on crossing the A2Z finish line with me. It's been a fun and interesting ride as we shared with one another. Your writing snippets were fresh and clever. I hope we can stay connected, maybe you'll want to join my not-so Wordless Wednesday hop! Have a great day and thank for stopping in for Art Sketching Through the Alphabet “Z” (Zebra). :)

  5. I will definitely check out your Wordless Wednesday hop! I do want to stay connected and will be visiting your blog often.

    Love the little zebras!
