Many thanks to Jemima Pett for hosting the A to Z Theme Reveal!
This is my fourth year participating in A to Z.
The first year, I focused my A to Z theme on blessings. The second year, I tried to give tools for a writer's toolbox and my posts fell apart in the latter half of the alphabet. Last year, I focused on fencing and swordplay terminology and that was fun. I pulled out my old saber and foil and jumped around the house, much to the surprise of my dogs and cat. :)
This year, I almost didn't A to Z because I felt I needed to focus on finishing the second book in The Champion Trilogy . . . and then, I had an idea to mix both projects: a glossary of the world of Aramatir, the setting of The Champion Trilogy.
When I started writing my posts, it felt too "me" orientated, so with each post, I've also added a world-building question or thought that I hope will be thought-provoking/creativity building for anyone reading my posts.
And my posts will be shorter than this one.
So, primary theme: World of Aramatir (Champion Trilogy) Glossary.
Secondary theme: World Building
What do you think? Is it an ok theme?
And what's your theme for A to Z this year?
This awesome weekly hop helps all of us to Celebrate the Small Things - the laundry that is folded, or the socks that were matched, a line written, a fun moment with friends, etc. And it's all hosted and managed by a brilliant lady named Viklit at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author
This week, I'm celebrating:
1. Hosting Marcy Hatch on Wednesday for a 1 Word Interview Challenge!
2. Seeing an early showing of Divergent last night with my entire family, some friends, and an audience of 90% teen and pre-teen girls. The movie stayed fairly close to the book except an early plot reveal that was unneeded and a Hollywooded fight scene.
3. Finishing and polishing a bit more of Champion in Flight. The end is near. I can see the light at the end of the revision tunnel. :)
4. Lots of laughter, especially last night and this morning. In the romantic scene of Divergent, some younger teen girls sighed and oohed, and then half the theater giggled, and then the rest of the theater snickered - not at the movie, but at those girlish giggles.
(So, if you prefer your romantic scenes serious, don't go see a movie in a theater packed with young teen girls)
What are you celebrating this week?
