Wyrd and Wonder is back this May for another month of celebrating the fantastic! We’ll be reading, watching, listening and gaming our way through every nook and cranny of the fantasy genre, and sharing our enthusiasm online through our blogs and social media feeds.
A dark corridor stretches before you. You strain to make out the faint sounds echoing off its walls. Are there voices in the distance? Yes! There is a flicker of light ahead. Getting closer, the excited chatter becomes distinct. It is a group of adventurers. Wait, are they clutching book bags?
October is here. The pumpkins have begun their annual supermarket takeover. And starting next weekend your #WyrdAndWonder crew will be back for our 13 day mini-season of #SpooktasticReads!
The end of an adventure is bittersweet: a welcome return home, but an acknowledgement that it’s over… for now. Wyrd and Wonder has run its course for another year, so let’s take one last look at what an epic quest it has been.
It’s Monday, which means it’s time to gaze into my crystal ball once more and see what my Wyrd and Wonderful companions have been up to this past week.
I’m locked high in a tower with my nose in the wrong sort of book this weekend, but at least the view is good from up here – so grab yourself a seat and let me share the doings of my Wyrd and Wonderful companions…
Our intrepid party has split up and ventured out into the realms of fantasy in search of adventure. Some seek out dragons. Some swim with mermaids. Some dance with shapeshifters in the ruins of familiar cities. But all have a stash of books in their backpacks and a story to share around the fire…
Word had gone around. The clock struck the hour, and the tavern began filling with adventurers. And it kept filling. Good thing about fantasy taverns: there are always enough seats for all. Some people brought a friend. And everyone brought a book or two, and that was how we knew we were in the right company.
Raise the banners! Unleash your magicks! Summon your dragons! It’s May at last – welcome to an epic month of Wyrd and Wonder.
So other than the read-alongs, the photo challenge and/or the blog tag, what else will we be up to during Wyrd and Wonder next month? Eating people who ask too many questions, that’s what. JUST KIDDING. Don’t feed the dragons, friends. They get over-excited.
Is it a blog tag? Is it a photo challenge? Is it just a handy collection of Wyrd and Wonderful prompts? It’s up to you! We’ve come up with a prompt for every day through May – use them wisely. Or frivolously. Frivolity is good.
