Unraveling the Theme #AtoZChallenge


Print
A to Z challenge has been very special for me and is very close to my heart. It was only for the challenge that my writing took shape and the regime continued. It was the first time, after my blog’s inception, I started writing consistently.

This is the second time I’m participating. Last year it was all random and it went quite well. This year I’m geared up to take it a step ahead and experience the magic it spreads at the end of the month.

And now we’re here, all dressed up, ready to rock and roll (okay few of you have already rolled) and unveil our theme for the coming meddled up month!

I was so confused looking for the theme. A couple of ideas were striking me but there was some or the other point that wouldn’t let them be the one.

From traveling, to cooking, to baking, to movies, to love, all the topics one by one were jotted on the list and then very clearly brought down as well. I think what we write should always interest us and then only it will interest our readers and that happens when a bit of personal touch is added to it. Or maybe a little personal for the readers, and voila! You’re done.

It was this only thing that was holding me back from selecting the theme. But now, no more!

Am I talking too much?

Okay then, time to hold your breath, for the theme is here:

Depicting Feelings and Emotions from A to Z in 101 words

Yes, it will all the assortments of feelings and emotions that one undergoes under so many situations and how every emotion, good or bad, help in shaping one’s personality. They can really trigger the right and the wrong buttons and put us all in trivial situations. Don't you think? Not thinking? Don't worry, I'll make you think this April :P ;) 

Why 101 words? No hassle in reading and convenient in writing. Hopefully.

No, I haven’t scheduled a bit, but I’m planning to do it this week *conditions apply* *fingers crossed*

Oh, by the way, did I tell you I’ll be right in the corner, in AJ’s team (one of the co-hosts of the challenge) as wHooligans, along with Shilpa Garg, LuAnn Braley and Doreen McGettigan, cheering you guys, dancing with you all and making all the required noise!

I’m really looking forward to the A to Z Challenge and I hope you do too!

Lots and lots ready to be served on the plate. Keep writing, keep blogging and keeping visiting!

Stay tuned and I’ll be back with lots of fun for you guys!


Cheers

  1. I'm really scared on my word count... I have a tendency to ramble.. in 101 words, I would not have even finished telling you my name :)

    1. You have no idea how scared I am at the moment.. Wondering if I've made a mistake by putting a word limit.. But I really want to learn about writing more in less words.. and that will be quite a challenge..

      Keeping my fingers crossed for the time being!

      Cheers
