I was not too sure about signing up for it this year though. I thought about if for a good three days wondering what to do. The workload at office has piled on and I have my feet and hands in way too many buckets already. Although I try to write as often as I can, writing everyday would be difficult. But then I'm not the one to shy away from challenges. I know that my multitasking skills would be put to the ultimate test and I'm hoping to come out with flying colors. For those who do not know what I'm taking about, take a look here. And you will understand how important this challenge is in the blogging world.
My theme last year was 'Random'. I decided to write about anything and everything that I felt sticking to the A to Z theme. It worked beautifully! But this year I want to challenge myself and pick a theme and stick to it. But I want to be realistic also and pick an easy theme that I would be able to handle. 'Life' was my first option, but since Naba has taken it up I wanted a different theme. I know that Naba's posts would be much much better than mine and I do not want to compete with her on that. I sat all day wondering what to choose the theme as. I looked around me for motivation and saw that they were confusing me. Too many themes began to clog my mind. I looked at the bright yellow kurta that I was wearing and thought about 'Colors'. And then I realized that I probably am not aware of 26 colors to write a post about it every day.
Next I looked at the diverse crowd on my floor and thought about 'People'. But then I have pissed enough people already with my writings. As I was heating my lunch in the pantry I thought about 'Food'. That would have been an interesting topic but I'd get too hungry writing about it alone. So I had to let it go. A lot of other themes created chaos in my mind and troubled me all day. I had to put an end to all of it. That was when the most important thing struck me. What is the core of my blog? Why not go with that only as the theme. And then just like that my mind was made up and the theme is now ready to be revealed.
So, are you guys ready for it? The LOL theme for the A to Z challenge 2015, is:
I might write fiction, poetry or just my thoughts. But the theme will remain the same. I will explore various other emotions attached with love as well. I have a few ideas brewing in my mind already and I cannot wait for April to start.
Have you decided on your theme for the challenge yet? Do let me know what it is in the comments.
So for now, let us all hold hands, pray and motivate each other. Also let us start writing the posts and keep it ready because before you even know it, April will be here! I hope we shall all survive it.
