April Ends, May Starts

30 April, 2013

The next dawn brings the first day of May.  May was Maius in Latin and was named after the Greek goddess Maia, probably, who is associated with Spring.  So, what shall the theme be for May?  The fae and faerie?  Spring and nature?  Gods and religion?  Something else?  Let me know.

Unsurprisingly April’s writings were dominated by the 2013 A to Z Blogging Challenge, which I am pleased to say I completed (third year in a row).  So, the posts for April, 2013, were:

A-to-Z Posts:

Acid Crystal Trap, do not get burned.

Bottled Youth, for those wishing to be young, but someone must pay a price for it.

Color Cat, a potential familiar and unusual creature.

Eschatron Echo, the spell  may show you your eventual fate.

Fool’s Feast, a trap of sorts.

Guardian, you find them in some cities.

Hellish Feaver, an insidious disease that breaks your will and your body.
