Here we come, A to Z !! ( A to Z Theme Reveal post)


Hurray !! The much awaited day is here !

The day when we, the excited A-to-Zers, unveil the surprise and shine the torches upon the secret that’s awaiting April !

For those who are new to the idea, the A to Z is an Annual Mega Event in the blogosphere, that brings together more than 2500 bloggers across the globe. Through the month of April, we write 1 post per day for 26 days , each day’s post signifying a letter of the English Alphabet , beginning with A on April 1st, B on April 2nd and so on.

Oh yes, Sundays are off, so that all 26 letters get perfectly and comfortably ensconced in our blogs :D

So what do we write about ?
Anything, everything, as long as it has something to do with the letter for the day.
We can theme, or we can be random about the topics.
No pressures, just fun. And more fun.

But some of us do it with a theme, so that’s another challenge within the challenge !

And that’s what this post is all about.

*Drum Rolls please*

THE THEME REVEAL  !!


A, B , C , D, E, F, G
A nice little Story it's going to be !

H, I, J, K, L, M, N
A month long job for the paper and pen !

O, P, Q ;  R, S, T
Come on, lets' go and rock it, shall we ?

V,W ;  X, Y, Z....
Let's leave no A-to-Z post unread !!

Yes, my Theme is a Story :-)
 Simple, isn’t it ?
I love the simplicity of how it sounds :)
 A story, the seeds of which had been sown some time back.
The whole idea began as a seed for a short story, and that’s when A to Z popped up.
This prompted me to put the short story on hold to give it some time to bloom into something more than what it was actually conceived to be.

And that new bloom is what April is going to see on my blog.

A story, woven in 26 segments,  with the alphabets in sync.
A story we all will be able to identify with.
Something , that I wish, would stir the souls of anyone who reads it.
Something, that would make us say, “ hey, I think I’ve seen someone like that, somewhere, sometime.”
That’s the promise, to you, all my dear readers and myself ! :)

I hope to make it as interesting and as engaging as I can :-) I hope and pray you all are with me in this maiden endeavour of mine !

As an addition, I think of throwing in another random post for each letter, on the very first thing that I can think of when I see it.
That is making it as random as ‘random’ can get !
This actually means I’ll have to write two posts for each letter, one for the Story, and the other, random.
Which is by no means, an easy feat.
But achievable, nonetheless. This is just an added bonus.
I can either write both the posts on the single day, or make the latter a weekly round-up post for the Sundays :-)
That’s still a surprise ! :-)

This is the first time I’m taking part in the A to Z, and my excitement is predictable , so is my nervousness.

Will I be able to do it right ?
Will I meet the challenge and make it through ?
Will I be able to do justice to myself and my commitment and deliver my best ?
Will it work out the way I think it would ?

So many questions, which I’m sure are a part of everyone’s thoughts , at some point of time or the other.

And yes, the only weapon we have to meet the questions with a positive frame of mind, is the best weapon anyone can ever have.

Determination , baked with confidence, layered with motivation from fellow bloggers, and topped with enthusiasm !

Oh, yes, strengthened with the power of research, and deepened by thoughts !

This activity is about exercising your brain cells, activating the thought process and creating reading pleasure for the readers.
It is about sharing the passion for writing with a huge network of the like-minded .
It is about spreading some love by sharing what we love from the blog world, across the friends‘ networks ( bloggers or non-bloggers).
It is about enriching those around us with the words we share, getting enriched by them in the process.
It is about the fun of blog-hopping, visiting, reading, commenting, motivating, helping and supporting all those who are here for the fun of it.
It is about appreciating the hosts and co-hosts who are working behind the scenes to make the event a grand success !!

Let’s join together and rock the show !!

Join us, will you, please ?
