A to Z Challenge April 2018

It's almost time for the April A to Z Challenge. The challenge is for bloggers to post every day in April except Sundays using the alphabet as a sort of guide and that each post has something to do with the letter of the day. I don't remember when I first participated in the challenge but I seem to vaguely remember doing this last year and it was fun, a little chaotic and a little stressful but I enjoyed it so that's why I'm doing it again this year.

Today, we are to reveal our theme but I don't have one. I'm just going to post whatever comes to my head but there might be fiction or not. At the A to Z Challenge blog, they have a post called 'Idea Donation Day' but I didn't see anything that I like. I'm open to suggestions. Feel free to leave any ideas, prompts or suggestions in the comments. I love to do something that someone else thought of.

Sign up for the A to Z Challenge here >

Update: I finally settle on what I'll be writing: short fiction and miscellaneous lists. I like writing fiction and I like making lists and so combining the two is the perfect way to challenge myself  or not, depending how well I will do but yeah, short fiction and miscellaneous lists - that's what I'm posting for April.  Help me decide what to write, suggest words/phrases/ideas on this post.

  2. Such an interesting thing to do Lissa.

    You could think of the first word that comes to mind for each days letter. Then write a 3=10 sentence fictional blurb, story.... That was the first thought that came to me. Or it could be ongoing...... at the end you would have a 26 paragraph story.

    I love your art for this.

    1. short blurb fiction, yeah, that sounds like something I would like to do. I am now thinking of writing 26 fiction stories because I really do want to post more of my writings even if they're a bit amateurish. I guess I kind of wanted someone to tell me to do it because I really lack motivation these days. thanks for the idea and encouragement.

      this art piece is a redo of an older piece which I dearly love because I can change the background so easily.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  3. This'll be my sixth A-to-Z. The first two I didn't have a theme. I just picked a topic I thought I could write something about that started with that day's letter. It was fun! I hope you have a great time with it, Lissa!

    1. that's what I did on my last a-z challenge but I sort of wanted a theme because it just seems like it's a lot easier with a theme instead of whatever comes along which may sound simple but it's kind of hard to choose because there is such a wide range of subjects. but whatever I do, I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  4. Hi Lisa, I agree, it's hard to choose every day, the theme helps with that. Go with the short stories, it sounds like you'd want to do it just lack the confidence? I'm sure it'll be fun. Good luck whatever you choose!

  5. It's hard to commit to a theme that has the capacity to cover 26 letters and be relevant and entertaining. Your fiction never disappoints, so I'm sure you and your readers will have fun with your characters!

  6. I think the idea of just writing what comes to mind for the day would be cool. It'll be interesting to see if any themes develop/thread through your posts as the month goes along.

    1. last year, I just did whatever come to me the day before posting but I thought this year, I should do a theme but no, it's not happening but I'll be writing fiction and whatever comes, is what I'll write.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.
