I know, I know I am a bit late for the theme reveal, but you know yesterday I had a very lovely guest post, and thus my A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal post is going up a bit late. I will ost likely be sound asleep when it will go live, as it is scheduled so that it is still the 21st of March in many time zones, that’s a good compromise isn’t it?
Last year, I found out about the A to Z Challengeonce I there seemed to be only Theme Reveal posts everywhere. This year, I should have had time to repare, but I am about as prepared as last year. If you are nterested you can find last year’s posts here, I did not have a theme back then.
Since last year’s challenge ended, I have been thinking of my potential theme. Should I write pieces of flash fiction? Should I share memories? Should I do this or that? Since day one my blog has been eclectic, I guess that’s why pinpointing a theme in which to write 26 posts, might be a bit constraining. With what I read in the past challenge I knew what works well, what does not work too well. I quickly ecided that it would be a no to a continuous piece, as those sadly are neglected, unless you have many readers on day one that are completely charmed, it might be a tough month for you…
So what theme have I decided on? I have decided to follow the example of one of my blogging friends, who I actually did not meet during the A to Z Challenge but a bit later on. This year I want my theme to be Authenticity, that means that every day you’ll find the first (or maybe) second thing that came into my mind regarding the letter in question, so yes it will most likely be quite eclectic. Expect to find a lot of flash fiction, some memories and other things in the lot. As for the length, I will try to limit myself, but if something needs more than 250-300 words than so be it!
As a bonus at the end of every post there will be a little one sentence story in which as many words as possible start with the letter in question, as this is a game I used to love playing in the car while on holidays.
Happy A to Z! You’ll be able to find all of my post under the A to Z Challenge – April 2016 category tab in the menu.
