Well, I never thought we'd end up with this!
Back in April 2016, I wrote an article for Chris Fielden's website - a site chock-a-block with writing advice, competition listings, and services.
My article was imaginatively titled "How to Research, Write, and Publish a Short Story".
About half way down, I put in something a bit daft. "You could even," I wrote, "write a story in which the majority of words are an adverb. Go on, I dare you."
(In mitigation, all I was trying to do was make a meandering point about the "consensus" of good-practice writing guidelines... but in hindsight, I do admit now it came out a bit weird.)
Anyway, such wanton-rule-breakage certainly caught writers' imaginations far and wide, because here is the result: "Adverbially Challenged Volume 1". 91 writers; 100 flash fictions; many, many adverbs.
All proceeds go to the charity First Story. Please do click through to the page on Chris Fielden's site and buy a paperback and/or eBook copy via any of the links available - or go direct to Amazon here - it's all in a great cause.
(PS: my own story, "Giving it the Adverbals", is my first - and in all likelihood, last - attempt at a pun-packed prose-poem.)
(PPS: Volume 2 is already well underway! All writers are welcome to unleash their excess adverbs and submit here.)
