The A To Z Theme Reveal

I’m a day late in posting this!

My theme for this year’s challenge involves 3 elements…

                                                            *drum roll*

                                           

                         A beautiful photograph

                                             +

                  A randomly chosen phrase

                                  +

                                      An object

                                             which equals……………………

                                 NIFTY NUGGETS!!

Twenty six pieces of flash fiction, not exceeding 300 words… *hopefully*… based on a photo, a phrase and an object.

 Reminder: the IWSG admins will be posting daily over at the website. The theme is Writing Inspiration, twenty six posts filled with positive, encouraging, confidence boosting information.

Everyday, you’ll have the opportunity to link your A to Z posts to the ‘letter of the day’ over at the IWSG Facebook page. 

 …and I’m proud to be marching onward and upward as part of the Joyful Brigade, providing behind-the-scenes-assistance as we move along from A to Z… **insert drum beat**
See you around on the A to Z circuit!

    Nifty Nuggets! (Not to be confused with Chicken Nuggets.) Great idea. Yours sounds as challenging as mine.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:23 am

      It’s nuggets as in chunks of golden nuggets…
      But I hope they turn out as golden as crispy chicken nuggets. 🙂

    Reading your nuggets will be a treat.

  6. Susan Gourley on March 25, 2015 at 1:42 pm

    I know they’ll be good reads. I love nuggets and these kind are even good for me.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:28 am

      I love your show of confidence in my nuggets-that-have-yet-to-be-revealed… 🙂
      You’re talking about chicken nuggets… am I correct… and word nuggets – both delicious!

  7. Carol Kilgore on March 25, 2015 at 2:02 pm

    What fun! I know you like photo inspirations 🙂

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:29 am

      I LOVE photo prompts. They spark something in my creative brain!

  8. Patricia Lynne on March 25, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    Awesome theme. Can’t wait to read your nifty nuggets.

  15. Peaches Ledwidge on March 25, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    you’re – correction

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:37 am

      I’m trying to stay on the roll, Peaches. Hope I can sustain. 🙂

  16. Christine Rains on March 25, 2015 at 11:33 pm

    Nifty Nuggets. I really like that! 🙂 Simple is the way to go.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:42 am

      Thanks Christine! 🙂
      You’re not doing the challenge? I suppose you have enough on your plate already… having just completed your Geeky Dice & Debauchery Tour, and now busy with your Blood and Sorrow Character Tour…

  17. Silvia Villalobos on March 25, 2015 at 11:47 pm

    Very creative Michelle. I like it a lot. And the formula through which you arrived at the theme, fantastic. See you along the AZ road.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:43 am

      Thank you Silvia! 🙂
      I’m also looking forward to your inspirational posts!

      As I said, Lady Thy Theme is Trouble… good trouble, of course! 🙂

  20. Heather M. Gardner on March 26, 2015 at 1:27 am

    This sounds like a great idea!
    I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:48 am

      I’m in total awe of your “yet-to-be-decided-upon” theme!
      I can’t wait to see what you come up with. (I’m sure it will be AWESOME)

  21. Sarah on March 26, 2015 at 2:33 am

    Your theme sounds fun! Almost like your playing Clue. Who did it in what place using what weapon? Lol.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:50 am

  23. Betty on March 26, 2015 at 4:30 am

    Sounds like a cute theme! I’ve seen a few other blogs who are also doing themes with flash fiction, sounds challenging too! Good luck with it!

    betty

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:54 am

      You posted beautiful pics last year. I remember some of them. Really therapeutic.
      Looking forward to your photos!

  24. Nilanjana Bose on March 26, 2015 at 7:00 am

    Hi Michelle,

    Sounds like a neat theme, and challenging too! Love a good read always.

    Best wishes for a great A-Z,
    Nilanjana.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 9:58 am

      I’m really looking forward to your poetry response theme. 🙂
      See you next week!

  25. Sara C. Snider on March 26, 2015 at 1:18 pm

    Wow, I commend you for aiming for 300-word stories. I’m aiming for 500 words, which I’ve been exceeding more often than not. And Nifty Nuggets is such a cool title. Nifty Nuggets… it’s like a little song. 😉

    Anyway, see you in April!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 10:00 am

      You’re the lady with the “Green” theme. 😀
      I’m really curious to see how your flash fiction based on tree names will unfold… looking forward to reading your posts!

  26. Beverly (@Bevimus) on March 26, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    You know, Michelle, I literally don’t know what I’d do without you. You and Alex and Tina (who I’ve been missing a lot lately) and Laura and Diana and- I could go on for a while, but you get the idea. You guys are the most supportive cast of characters I’ve ever been blessed to know. Thank you so much for your support!

    As for the theme- I agree with Alex, it sounds just as challenging as his. no wait, I take that back. It sounds MORE challenging than his because you have to everything in flash fiction format. Godspeed! I’ll be here, reading each post and be enthralled by your writing!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 10:05 am

      Bev you are such a honey… 🙂
      I’m eager to see how your 26 instalments of “Scenes From An American Diner” unfolds. I love the concept!

  27. Murees on March 26, 2015 at 1:37 pm

    Great theme! I hope you’re going to have lots of fun creating new flash fiction pieces and meeting new people.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 10:08 am

      Thank you, Murees!
      The plan IS to have lots of fun… let’s hope it works out that way! I’ve already met lots of new bloggers via this Theme Reveal Hop.

  28. J.L. Campbell on March 26, 2015 at 11:35 pm

    Michele,
    You always do such fun and creative themes. Looking forward to it!

  29. J.L. Campbell on March 26, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    Oooooh and thanks for being such a wonderful and supportive friend and for helping with containing the madness. 😀

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 10:10 am

      Glad I can be of assistance and help “contain the madness”. LOL

  30. Julie K Pick on March 27, 2015 at 7:52 am

    Sounds like you’ve chosen another brilliant theme, Michelle! You’ve even upped the challenge from last year! If anyone can do it, you can! See you next week!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 10:12 am

      I’m always in for a good challenge… it’s nice to S-T-R-E-T-C-H those creative muscles. Let’s hope I can deliver, Julie! 🙂
      Let’s put it this way – I’ll never know if I don’t try…

  31. Rae on March 27, 2015 at 11:00 am

    that’s a challenging theme – look forward to seeing what you come up with for your flash fiction.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2015 at 10:15 am

      See you next week.
