A-to-Z Challenge Theme Reveal

Posting a day early, of course, because today is the big theme reveal for the Challenge.

Come on. As if you didn’t know what I’m doing.

It’s etymology. Of course it’s etymology. What else would it be? I love my etymology days because words are so weird and fascinating (ooh, weird and fascinating will make good words to etymologize), but there are tons of words that really aren’t long enough to warrant a post of their own. And while sometimes I’m able to find a reason to post a bunch of them together, like the prepositions post from last week (and this week) and the post from a few weeks before when I did synonyms for smart, sometimes I really can’t think of a good uniting force.

Which is where the Challenge comes in. It’s perfect. One word a day, short posts, a variety of subjects. And it all begins a week from Wednesday.

So if you’re not doing the Challenge, prepare for some extra posts, and if you are doing the Challenge, boy, are we going to be busy.

Happy April!


  1. Perfect theme. I revealed today too.

  2. Ooh, words, words are so interesting. I look forward to seeing which words you have chosen for your posts during April.

  3. Yo won't run out of options for letters, that's for sure.

  4. I like this theme! I look forward to reading this! Would love to read about the etymology of some of the weird words in our language!

  5. So, I kind of thought etymology was studying insects or something but apparently it's not (you naturally already knew this). Obviously, I have a lot to learn, and entire month to learn it from you. Bring it on A to Z!

  6. This will be fun. Are you using snow as your S word? Where does snow come from? Couldn't resist.

  7. Sounds very educational :) Looking forward to it!

  8. What a great theme! I subscribed to your blog and I'm really looking forward to reading all of your posts and learning lots of new words!

    This is our, first #AtoZchallenge and we are excited to participate!

  9. This is a great theme for readers, writers, and word-loving people!


  10. Etymology rocks! (At least if you're a word geek like me, it does.) Looking forward to your posts!

  11. Well, of course you're doing etymology. I shouldn't be surprised. (I'm not. I just hadn't given it much thought.)

  12. I love your etymology posts, so I'm excited. I'm A-Zing too, but I've decided to wing it this year and just write about something random each day. Who knows how it will turn out?

  13. I love words! As a writer, I can't get enough of them. ;)

    1. Ahahahaha... I misread your theme!

      How embarrassing!

  20. I had to look up etymology because I wasn't sure what it meant :) Great theme especially if you are a word lover :)
