I’m doing something I hate doing: Jumping in at the last minute!

After resolving not to do the challenge this year, thanks to health and other issues, I decided last evening , ‘Well, what’s the harm?’ Of course, I have not thought this through!

But that’s the thing about challenges: They push you to your limits, they help you break out of the comfort zone and in my case, perhaps, bring me back to what I love doing: writing flash/micro fiction.

I am a fish swimming against the current, people: A blue goldfish, if you will! That’s the hint to my theme. Any guesses? No?

With that, I hereby reveal my theme for this year’s A to Z challenge. Ta-da!

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I’ve taken up the theme of:

An Oxymoron rendered inΒ micro-fiction

I’ll be crafting a short tale (really short) based on the oxymoron of the day. Each day’s titleΒ will have one half of the oxymoron while the second half will be revealed towards the end of the post.

That’s not all;

I’ll be attempting to do it in 100 words exactly.

Follow me as I unravel each taleΒ this April. Hey, it’s 100 words. You know you want to read me next month!

Thanks to Shutterstock and their fabulous image library, I will have some lovely images to go with each post, so do stop by πŸ™‚

Are you taking part too? Do leave a comment with a link to your blog/theme reveal and I’ll be sure to check you out soonest! Good luck everyone!

  1. Such a fantastic theme! I am intrigued to say the least. See you around and all the best. I am participating in this for the first time, hoping for some good show πŸ˜€

  2. I was terribly missing your flash fiction Shailaja! I read all your A-Z posts for 2015 and fell in love with your writing. Now, a flash fiction every day in April from YOU is a party to all your fans.
    Looking forward to read you !

    1. How lovely that people missed my fiction. I had no idea! This is one main reason I’m doing the challenge. To get back to writing. Thank you and good luck to you too, Sampada!

  3. I’m sure you’ll nail the challenge even though it’s last minute. Can’t wait to read your posts. I’m very mindful it’s the 23rd of March and that means another 8 days to the challenge. And just like that, I’ve begun to panic a wee bit! Good luck!

    1. Uff don’t remind me. I’m calculating three posts a day if I have to finish before April begins. Where are those clones when you need them?!

  4. Yippee Yay! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I’m over the moon to find you taking part in the challenge and coming up with a theme reveal post. Awesome theme, Mam. I will definitely get to learn a lot from your posts. A blue goldfish? Ooo, I will wait for it. Happy A to Z πŸ™‚

  5. A challenging theme always promises a devoted audience! There’s the challenge of atoz, another challenge of finding 26 oxymorons, and the best one: fitting it all in 100 words! It’s no wonder you’re so awesome, Shailaja ❀

    April is indeed going to be the best month ever πŸ˜‰πŸ’œ
