I wrote The Travelling Librarian in 2019 and thought it would be one of those posts I wrote that would get lost in the volume of short fictions written every day on the digital space. But to my intense surprise, not only did the post get views, most of the comments asked me if I was planning a sequel. There were also comments on extending the universe of Mr. Chubs.

I obviously had no plans. The story came to me as an homage to something I read in a book – a girl asks a boy tell me a story and he launches into one – I don’t even remember which book this was. But the comments got me thinking and as I’m known to plan my AtoZ right from January, I thought why not.

So my theme for 2021 is going to be a revisit to Mr. Chubs’ world. This time not only is he telling stories but we’ll also find out his secrets, lies and why he became a travelling librarian. The planning for this one was super easy but there is a lethargy while writing these posts in advance. I’m hopeful that this theme reveal will be the push I need to plan my 26 posts and give Mr. Chubs a satisfying story.

See you in April!

  1. Wow! Preparing in January? Impressive. I’m a lastminute.com kinda writer:)
    Now that I’m familiar with your theme–I hope to dive into your stories bit by bit.


  2. loved the ideas you have used for the themes, makes me want to plan my next attempt at the A2z challenge better. This time it’s more of just getting random pieces together.


  3. This is an adorable theme and always piques interest in all the book lovers out there. Looking forward to your beautiful posts. Best wishes Suchita.


    1. The trick of AtoZ is to plan well in advance, to write posts in March so all you have to do is publish in April. And you can always schedule posts πŸ™‚ I would say go for it. It’s a ride like no other.
