A to Z Theme Reveal

This April, I will be participating in the A to Z Challenge for the third time in a row.


For the first, I took each day as it came and wrote about random subjects from A to Z.

By the second year, I had gained some experience and during that time there was quite a buzz about to theme or not to theme. So, I decided to go with the theme. Last year, my theme for the A to Z Challenge 2014 was Marriage from A to Z in exactly 55 words! Yes, I wrote about the ingredients that make or break a married relationship and packaged them in 55 Fiction. It was a fun and a challenging experience.

Having written without a theme and on a theme from A to Z, these last two years, I spent some time on whether to theme or not, this year. Mind you, both are quite challenging in their own way. Writing on a random new topic almost every day or writing on a planned subject(which could be restrictive) from A to Z has its thrills and chills.

I did an extensive 5-minute research and decided to go with a theme for the April A to Z Challenge 2015.

And the big moment has arrived. It’s time to reveal my theme for this year’s challenge.

Drum rolls please…


My Theme for the A to Z Challenge 2015 is : Emotions and Feelings from A to Z in 55 Words.

Emotions and feelings are an integral and essential part of our life’s experience. They drive us and even drive us astray. Healthy and unhealthy expression of emotions comes naturally to us. So, this April I will be exploring the varied positive and negative emotions and feelings in the form of short stories expressed in exactly 55 words!!

Why 55 words again, you may ask! Well, it’s a win-win situation for both you the reader and I the writer and I’d not like it not any other way 😀

Hope you’d enjoy reading the 26 stories on emotions from A to Z as much as I’d love writing them. See you around!

Happy reading, writing and connecting all through the April! Cheers ♥

    • Hi Sue! So good to see you here! Thanks and glad that you liked my theme. Hope I am able to do justice to it! *Fingers Crossed* I am so looking forward to your collection of stories and photos based on your Mother’s Shoebox Album and your 1950’s and 1960’s Scrapbooks!! Cheers 🙂

    • Thanks Vinodini! Yes, being a wHooligan is a lot of fun and hard work too 😀 Loved your theme. Looking forward to read your thoughts and stories on phrasal verbs from A to Z 🙂

    • Hi Shantala! Good to connect with you too! Thanks a lot, glad you liked my earlier attempts at 55 Fiction! I am looking forward to be inspired through your words in April too! Cheers 🙂

    • Thank you, Carrie! I know what you mean. But I find writing in 55 words pretty interesting, fun and challenging. I am so looking forward to read your posts on people in The Bible. Good luck to you 🙂

  2. That’s a great pick, Shilpa and I look forward to reading your posts in April.

    My initial pick was to go random for the challenge but something inside me warned against it since I will be a first timer this year.

    But your idea of no theme / themes inspire me to try them out 🙂 All the best for the blog-a-thon.

    • I have seen that both the ‘no theme and theme’ posts have their pros and cons! I hope you enjoy reading, writing and connecting during this A to Z Challenge! Thanks a lot and good luck to you too 🙂

    • LOL 😀 Yes 😀 I am looking forward to a lot of fun and challenging myself in the process, too!
      All the best to you, Wendy, as you write different letters from A to Z! Cheers 🙂

    • Thanks Rosie! Aha! You are a rose too 🙂 ♥
      Looking forward to read the various characters from books, through your words, this April. And thanks for linking up my blog in your post! Cheers 🙂

    • Did I tell you that I am in awe of you! Writing for this challenge on 3 blogs!!! Super amazing!
      You know how it is during such a challenge… it cannot be anything but short posts! 😀

    • Thanks a lot, Shailaja! Fingers crossed this time… I have just received my travel plan and I’d be away for more than 15 days next month. I dont know how I’ll manage!! 😕

  3. Hi shilpa, loved your theme,
    emotions and feeling in it self says a lot and when they come in alphabetical order by a rose gal i am sure it will be fun to read them all. Your creative writing has always rocked and will do so this year too I long to read all emotions/ feelings from your writings and stories….

    • Oh! Happens sometimes, though I checked the spam folder for your comment, it isnt there! 😐
      Oh yes, we are in it together again! Looking forward to all the fun and madness 🙂

    • I checked the spam folder too, cant find your comment. So, it must have just got lost in the cyber world 😐
      Thanks a lot for your kind words Ma’am. Looking forward to read your posts too!

  4. I like your approach to this year’s A to Z. Theme or not to theme, that is a big question when 26 days are dedicated to the venture. Last year I didn’t have a theme. This year, like you, I do but an open theme with lots of room for creativity. I look forward to your posts. Your topic is so relevant to our everyday existence yet leaves room for artful interpretations as well.
