                                This year my A to Z theme is all about

                                       **********drum roll**********

                                   FUN WITH WORDS

I'm talking about those obscure, unpronounceable, odd-sounding words that we don't encounter in our day-to-day reading and writing. I'm still wracking my brains for a suitable title for this word challenge. My theme is interactive, since I'm inviting you to take part in the fun and games and post your thoughts in the comment section.

                                         But that's not all!

I'll be posting a special greeting at the beginning of each post. It's what I call an "alliterative-styled alphabetical greeting". Some greetings may be long, some may be short. I'm not sure if it's going to work or not. I'm also not sure if it will make any sense. It's not really meant to. Some of it may turn out to be a string of mumbo-jumbo, incoherent rambling… we'll see. Bottom line is – it's all about fun! And the posts will be super-short! It should take you about a minute to read through!

So there you have it! When I have some time tomorrow, I'll be off to check out the other participants!

    That sounds like a lot of fun, and can't wait to see what you come up with. And I like the short idea, especially since we're trying to hit so many. Good luck!

      Short, sweet and to the point! That's the way to go. There will be more time to get around to other blogs. Thanks for popping in. I'll check out your post shortly.

  3. Mary on March 21, 2013 at 10:03 pm

    Sounds like a very fun theme. April is almost here… gah!

  4. Medeia Sharif on March 21, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    I like your theme. I enjoy odd words. 

    • Michelle Wallace on March 22, 2013 at 9:29 am

      I'll be checking out your posts to find some new books to read!

  5. Al Diaz on March 21, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    I'll have the dictionary at the ready then. Odd words are not my strong suit but I love to learn new things.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 22, 2013 at 9:31 am

      … and I'll become "dragon-wise" from your posts!  🙂

  6. Alex J. Cavanaugh on March 21, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    Makes sense to me!!

    And you were just on my mind. You'll find out why next month.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 22, 2013 at 9:33 am

      Oooh Alex, please give me a small idea…? Just a teensy-weensy one? No? Okay, I'll have to wait…  🙂

  7. L. Diane Wolfe on March 22, 2013 at 12:53 am

    And I bet every single word will be new to me.

    • Michelle Wallace on March 22, 2013 at 9:33 am

      Maybe not! You never know… you'll have to check in to find out… 🙂

  8. Mina Lobo on March 22, 2013 at 4:14 am

    Kudos, Dude – I dig fun with words, too. Especially puns. I heart me some puns. 🙂

    • Michelle Wallace on March 22, 2013 at 9:34 am

      I LOVE puns!  🙂 Your theme has generated lots of interest already… exciting!

  9. Guilie on March 22, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Sounds super fun! I'll be looking forward to it 🙂

    • Michelle Wallace on March 22, 2013 at 9:37 am

      Hey Guilie! Hope you're well! 🙂 I'll be by your place shortly…

  10. Jocelyn Rish on March 22, 2013 at 5:01 am

    You know I love odd words – I might just have to borrow some of them for my tweet tales once my Rare Words book runs out of options. 🙂  And I can't wait to see what you have in store for these alliterative-styled alphabetical greetings. Best of luck with it!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 23, 2013 at 3:23 pm

      Jocelyn, you are the queen of odd words! 🙂 I could learn from you…

  11. DL Hammons on March 22, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    This should be interesting!  Looking forward to it. 🙂

  12. Ida Chiavaro on March 22, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    This is really going to appeal to my inner word nerd.  Good luck with the challenge, and thanks for the reminder to keep the posts short.  

    • Michelle Wallace on March 23, 2013 at 3:26 pm

      Short and to the point. Less stress that way. Chance to get around and visit more bloggers too! 🙂

  13. Rhonda on March 23, 2013 at 1:09 am

    Fun with words sounds like a winner.  I am now following at Networked blogs. 

    • Michelle Wallace on March 23, 2013 at 3:28 pm

      Thanks for popping in and for following my blog! I'll swing by your place when I get a chance. 🙂

  14. Kim Van Sickler on March 23, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    Great Challenge theme. It will be fun for you to learn and write and educational, and I'm sure coming from you, entertaining to read. Can't wait!

  15. Yolanda Renee on March 23, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Too cool, and sounds like such fun. I love learning new words and used to play the word games in Reader's Digest each month. Vocabulary is so important!

    Looking forward to your posts!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 23, 2013 at 5:04 pm

      The word game is going to be lots of fun! And yes, it's great to learn new words and extend ones vocabulary. Thanks Yolanda!

  16. Tarkabarka on March 23, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Fun! Cheerst for A to Z!

  17. shell flower on March 23, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    That sounds like a really cool plan. I can't wait to see your posts in April. My plan was to do flash fiction, but I've only done A so far and I'm worried I'm not going to make it, but we shall see!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 23, 2013 at 7:52 pm

      I did themed flash fiction last year! It was mentally stimulating…  a great exercise. 🙂

  18. Mina B. on March 26, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    I bet your FUN WITH WORDS will be awesome!  Can't wait to read your posts.. 🙂

  19. Julie on March 28, 2013 at 4:33 am

    Great theme Michelle! I don't know why I didn't see this sooner. I could've sworn that I left a comment on your top ten movie list, but I must have forgotten. Maybe my theme should be about losing it!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 28, 2013 at 7:43 am

      Hahahaha! Thanks for the early morning laugh, Julie! Don't woryy, we all have those "moments" when we are so certain about something, only to discover otherwise…   🙂

  20. Shannon Lawrence on March 29, 2013 at 5:41 am

    Sounds good! I love words! If I learn just one, it's totally worth it to me. Good luck!

    • Michelle Wallace on March 29, 2013 at 8:54 am

      It's fun with words + a twist 🙂 You will learn lots of odd definitions… *wicked grin*
