The kinda big Reveal

thmrevel

Last year I took part in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge using a secondary blog that I was maintaining at the time. The challenge, as described on the A to Z site, is,

“Can you post every day except Sundays during [the] month [of April]? And to up the bar, can you blog thematically from A to Z?”

In other words, on April 1st, the topic for a post would be something beginning with the letter A, and so on ‘til the end of the month when you reach Z. Some bloggers use themes to tie their posts for the month together. I didn’t do that last year, since I only learned of the challenge on April 1st, and was scrambling to come up with the requisite posts, let alone something thematic. But this year…

I decided that if I’m going to barrage readers with daily posts, I’ll keep them short and sweet – well, short anyway. So my “theme” is to write a 5-7-5 poem each day (a poem in the form of three lines with corresponding syllables per line of 5, 7 and 5). Some would call it haiku, and haiku purists would be aghast if you called it haiku. So I’ll just leave it at 5-7-5.

And in keeping with the alphabetical theme, each day’s poem will be on a topic beginning with the assigned letter, AND — just to make it even more challenging — each line of the poem will also begin with the letter of the day.

Confused? Yeah, me too. But with April just around the corner, it will all become clear. I hope.

Bottom line: One month (April), short posts, alphabetical, haiku-ish.

    Short and sweet makes it easier on the readers. Sometimes my posts aren’t as short as they should be, but they aren’t haiku either. I’ve never tried doing an A to Z of poetry, but maybe one day I’ll try.

    Have a fun time with A to Z!
