Today is a big day for me on the journey for A to Z Challenge. (If you’re a blogger, and haven’t heard of it, here are ten solid reasons to join this mega blogging challenge!)
One of the easiest ways for blogging 26 days in April is following a theme (and ‘random’ is acceptable as a theme, lol).
This year we have a big party centered around just this aspect of the challenge: the A to Z challenge theme.
For those of us who have a theme, the ladies of #TeamDamyanti, Anna Tan, Csenge Zalka, Guilie Castillo Oriard, Samantha Geary Jones, and Vidya Sury *with technical support from Jemima Pett & Mary Wallace* are hosting the A to Z Theme Reveal Blogfest (following the unofficial tradition Mina Lobo started last year for the A to Z Challenge.)
I’m thrilled to be part of this, and without further ado, here’s my theme for this year’s challenge:
This blog started as a place to share writing advice, and that’s what I’ll be doing throughout April: Writing advice from the best in the business…quotes from some of the sharpest minds in the world of fiction, following the alphabet.
Come, join me in my A to Z Journey of Fiction writing tips in the month of April! I’m off to check out others who’re revealing their themes today– I might be a little late because I’m not very well, but better late than never, right?
And if you’re still sitting on the fence about the A to Z Challenge, I can tell you that in the last 3 years since 2011, I’ve not regretted either taking part, or co-hosting it.
Are you doing the A to Z Challenge? Do you have a theme? Are you taking part in the Theme Reveal blogfest?

This is my first time for the A-Z challenge. As it is a daunting task but looking at you guys is giving me goosebumps 🙂
Hello..I found your blog through the A-Z challenge. As an aspiring writer, loved your theme and will be stopping by to read all April!
I'm writing about writing, as well! Not tips, necessarily, but my experience with my WIP, my first novel. I shall be drinking in your advice with gusto!
Sounds piping hot! How does one join?

What an awesome theme! I'm worried I won't be able to hit many friends' blogs during the hop, but I'll make sure I come back to every single one of your posts when it's over. There's never enough info about writing for me! 🙂
Hey there! Guess I missed the blogfest, but I've already revealed my A to Z theme for this year; I'm sharing a story idea for each letter of the alphabet. See you on the A to Z trail in a week!
Great theme, Damyanti! Everyone, from experts to those just starting out can use tips and reminders, or the mantra, if you will, of a good piece of writing advice. Still a week till April? Geez, is someone purposely making the days go slow? I can hardly wait!!! :O)
I look forward to reading your posts.
I picked "Indian Literary". Already having a second thought 😛
Looking forward to all your tips 🙂 Thanks for having me on your team

Excellent choice, D! I'll be looking forward to reading (and bookmarking!) these tips. It'll be fun to see who agrees and who doesn't, and the ensuing conversations. Great pick!
Writing advice sounds like a great theme, why didn't I think of it 🙂 Best of luck for the challenge.
Very good theme. Even though I am not into fiction writing, but writing advice from anyone is always welcome and helpful 🙂
A unique theme, very useful it would be
Can't wait to read them. Tips from the best…w00t!

Writing tips are always welcome! Looking forward to your posts 🙂
Looking forward to your posts! I could really use some fiction writing tips as I am attempting fiction!!
I don't really have a theme – just filling in the gaps – I guess alot of it is all my interests, like movies, musicals and music. Oh and a post about going to We Will Rock You and my Birthday
Cool theme. You can never have enough of writing tips.

I can always do with more writing tips, so this sound like a good topic. Good luck with the A to Z. 🙂

Hello! Found your blog through IndiBlogger. I hope you feel better than yesterday? Writing tips in my opinion are something every one needs at one point in their writing/blogging phase. As the saying goes 'The more the merrier' It'll be really interesting to read what you share corresponding to the Alphabet. Looking forward to read and learn a lot from you!
Damyanti! Thank you so much for this opportunity to participate as one of your minions. I've enjoyed myself thoroughly in the #AZchat and interacting with my co-minions and we haven't even gotten to the challenge yet! I do so much appreciate this, and look forward to reading your posts, as I have gotten rather stale in my writing and need some kind of kick in the pants! Thanks again and I look forward to our journey through this challenge. Love, Mary
Writing Advice! Perfect! I adore valuable nuggets of knowledge that help navigate the literary realm! Sign me up:)
Hope you're on the mend:) xoxo
Resident Bartender for the A to Z Theme Reveal Party!
Wow! That sounds awesome! Looking forward to this one!
Hang on a second, my comment is finally here! I've just read your comment, dear lady. I'm sorry to read you're not very well. I'm around if you need to chat. All the best with the A to Z. A journey of fiction will be excellent. Did you know I'm a fictional character created by Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar?
Try and have a peaceful, hopeful weekend, Damyanti.
Thanks, everyone for stopping by and for the lovely comments! I'm not very well, so I shall spend my shortened online time visiting back, rather than replying to individual comments.
Thanks for taking part, those of you here from the AZ reveal!
I am so glad that you have chosen this theme 🙂
It's a boon for new bloggers like me.
Hola from Ecuador! Looking forward to your posts (and hoping I can keep up with reading my favorites daily as well as some new folks).
You are a life saver! Expecting a lot of useful tips from you since i am new to writing 🙂
I will be checking in!
Do check my theme reveal
Everyone can use a little writing help, I know I could. So I look forward to some great advice and info this coming April. 🙂
I'm doing it.
Writing advice is always useful as is learning from the best. You've chosen an effective theme that will help you survive the challenge while also helping others. And yes, better late than never does count for something 🙂
Get well soon!

Writing advice is always handy! Can't wait to see who you've rounded up for this!
Quotes and tips in daily doses sound great!
Fiction writing tips. I'll take it! Now I just have to get my time-stopper working again so I can be sure to make it for every post…but I may be out of anti-aging potion, so… =)
That should be very interesting. Gotta get my posts all done!
I love this idea and love writing advice in doses. haha. Good luck.

Good to hear from you about this years theme.
Great decision, keep writing!!
Waiting for the D Day!
Of course I am not yet decided LOL
Have a great day.
You are so right about the need for a theme. I didn't have one last year and getting through the challenge really stressed me out. I'm excited about your theme this year. I know I could use the advice! Laughing at Life 2
Oh, this sounds informative, educational and very exciting, Damy! Can't wait to read your posts!

Writing tips—awesome! Putting you on my short list.
Visiting from the theme reveal page. Love your theme: quotes and tips from the best are always a way to new blog posts, so I look forward to reading yours. Mine is 26 Ways to be Happy. Hope you'll tune in.
Interesting theme. Look fwd to reading. Please consider using a larger font size if possible, just a request. I have a hard time with small size fonts because of ghastly eyesight. Thanks.
My theme is "Writers on Writing from A to Z"!! We will be in the same wheel house next month! I haven't limited myself to fiction, so it should be interesting to see if we have any days that overlap (author-wise or quote-wise!). Best of luck. I'll be checking in!
