A to Z Theme Reveal Blogfest

For this year's challenge, my theme is The Fun in Writing. Each of my 26 posts for April is aimed at illustrating fun parts of an author's day. A writer doesn't only write. Creating a story or an essay requires research, revision, editing, and lots and lots of coffee and chocolate. For me, the chocolate part keeps me going like an energizer hare...

Luv this colorful bunny crafted by close friend, Kristen.
The multi-hued hare energizes me!
 (...although, between hair touch-ups, a more appropriate analogy might be old grey mare!)
Yes, I know this doesn't look like a mare, and it's not grey,
but you have to admit, he is really, really cute!
You may have noticed the predominance of the color brown in this post.
That's because my mind is always thinking:
In one word, my theme is FUN.
What is your theme for April, in one word?
Just leave one word below, and I'll visit your site to check out your theme plans.


  1. This is such a fun theme, Gail. Can't wait to read it :-)

    The Old Shelter - Jazz Age Jazz

  2. What a fun theme. I'll be checking back to see what you come up with. I can always use more fun in my writing. (And chocolate) =)

    1. Looking forward to learning from your writer's tips, quotes, and encouragement! Great blog header.

  3. Love your theme! My word is: 'Genealogy'. Have a happy and productive Challenge!

    1. Ros, genealogy runs through my theme and is featured on Wednesdays. Look forward to reading your April Challenge posts.

  4. Awesome theme! We're going with "simplicity." Look forward to what you come up with, Gail! (Eli@TechLife, #1263)

    1. Glad you visited me here, Eli. I'm looking forward to your posts for the A to Z Challenge, also.

  5. I find it coincidental (?) that my 2016 word of the year is FUN.
    I will definitely be following these posts :)

  6. Love the idea of 'fun in writing' because that is one thing this serious world desperately needs :)
    My theme is parenting.
    P.S.- Loved the mare (if I may call it that)

  7. Hi Gail. This is just what I love stuff and chocolate thrown in, what more can I ask for! Loved the look of your blog. Cheers to all of us, lets rock this April!

  8. Portmanteaus... but you already know that...

    Sounds like a fun theme. See you next month!

  10. I'm not a one person word but I'll try - memoir! (sort of). Your theme sounds like a lot of fun - you had me at "chocolate".

  11. Limericks. Your theme sounds fantastic! Best wishes for the challenge.

  12. I need more chocolate. Mainly because I've already eaten my Easter egg and it's not Easter Sunday yet :O Looking forward to your theme, Gail!

  14. Chocolate is a great theme, tied in with your overall theme of fun with writing. A day without chocolate is not a good day I do believe.

    My one word theme - Arizona!
