Theme Reveal – A To Z Challenge 2018

I came to know about the annual A to Z blogging channel from my wife, who participated and successfully completed it last year. At that time, I didn’t even have this blog (which, btw, I started only to like and comment on her posts.)

Somewhere along the way, I started writing too and, this year, I’m throwing my hat into the madcap world of A to Z blogging challenge.

I’m mainly a writer of fiction, so that’s what I’d be focusing on. For my maiden attempt at the challenge, my theme will be


I will be writing 26 pieces of Flash Fiction “With a TWIST.”

These twists may vary from funny, wicked to downright evil. 😉

Come join me as I embark upon arguably the toughest writing challenge I’ve ever attempted.



PS: Is there a way that like-minded bloggers can connect? I usually dabble in fiction, so I’d like to read more of fiction from my fellow bloggers. I see that nearly 350 bloggers have signed up for this year’s challenge and honestly each can regularly follow a max of 20. Though I’d be interested in reading about travelogues and other themes, I might not be able to contribute to those posts. I don’t intend on posting comments like ‘Nice one,’ or ‘Good post.’ Do let me know of your thoughts. Cheers and Happy ‘A to Z’ing 🙂

  1. Sounds like a great entertaining theme. A lot of people write fiction for the challenge, you’ll find the ones you like as you work your way through the list.

    All the very best for a fun time this A-Z. The first time is always extra special.

  2. That’s nice and the way you describe the twists and turns- “funny, wicked to downright evil” has built my curiosity! Another great fiction to read this April and I am writing one as well.

  3. great idea and cool story about how you fell into blogging – and right on to that (I mean write on…)
    also, you are so organized and to have your theme and plan in place – this looks great.

    1. That’s mighty kind of you, Keith. My wife gave the link for your Amble Bay series when I asked her if there were any good fiction blogs out there on A2Z. I enjoyed reading it. Good luck to you too.

  4. I am looking forward to reading your posts, Varad.

    As for finding like-minded posts, you can sort the master list by category so that you can find all of the other fiction writers who are taking part. It’s really a handy feature.

    Best of luck!

  5. Welcome to the challenge! I’m sure you’ll love it. When I started my blog four years ago, I knew nothing abotu blogging, I knew very few bloggers, it was a lonely world. But everything changed with the challenge. I learned to blog, I learned to comment, and I met lots of wonderful bloggers. That’s why I’m here again, once more 😉

    A lot of bloggers write fiction during the challenge. I’ve already come across 4 or 5. Just have a look around. Check the Twitter hashtag and the official website. Check the google document. There are a lot of way to find just the blogs you want to follow.

    Have a fantastic challenge!!

  6. Tales with an evil twist, now that’s something to look forward to. I love reading flash fiction. All the best. I’m ready to be laugh/get spooked or amused, whatever!

  7. Hi Varad – look forward to reading your tales with a twist. Loved your honesty about having like minded bloggers visit each other. Btw how do we get this list of 350 bloggers so that One can decide which blogs to visit. I am doing fiction too btw though the theme is different.

    1. Thanks, Balaka. I’d rather read, follow and comment properly on twenty or so blogs than do a hack-job by posting insincere comments on a lot of blogs. All the best for your maiden attempt at AtoZ as well.
