Maybe It’s Double Trouble This April…

Seven years, the Blogging from A to Z April challenge has happened. Seven years, I’ve participated. 5 years, I’ve completed the challenge. For those new to the challenge, this is where we write on themes around the 26 alphabets. So the theme on April 1st would be something with A, and the theme on April 30th would be something with Z (except for four Sundays, which don’t have challenge posts). You can go here if you want to know more about what the challenge is.

For some reason, I’m feeling quite happy today. Maybe it’s because of that, or maybe I’m feeling a rush after morning coffee, I’ve decided to go ahead and double my challenge. Yeah, I know. I’ve gone bonkers. But hopefully, it’ll turn out okay. So, in addition to the Harry Potter theme A to Z, I’ll be doing this one.

The theme is called ON SHORT NOTICE. What will I be writing? I do not know. Why? Because I’ll (hopefully) get a topic on short notice. On the previous day. On the post for A, I will ask you, the reader, to suggest a topic with the theme B. Anything is okay. From the topics, I’ll choose one, and write on that. Similarly, I’ll proceed, writing on the day for a particular letter. The post might be a poem, a fiction or even a ramble. I don’t know where my muse will lead me. I’ll be as surprised as you on the day.

So, I’ll keep an exception for A, and ask you, on this theme reveal, to suggest ONE TOPIC with the theme A for me to write a piece on, on April the 1st. 🙂 If you want to, you can specify what kind of writing (poem, fiction or ramble) you might like to see for that topic too. Though I’m not promising I’ll keep to that kind of writing. Hoping for some nice topics, and a doubly fun, double trouble April with you…

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. This is such an interesting theme! Like the actual challenge wasn’t challenging enough, you have set your bars high!! Fabulous!
    A for Avid maybe?
    a new bee to the A to Z Challenge

  2. You are a real veteran! Good to see you back for another round.

    My A suggestion is “Anarchy” written as a bit of a ramble (naturally).

    Have a great April Challenge in 2017!

  3. My suggestion would be “A for Alliance”

    Interesting idea and looking forward to reading the posts.
