My Secret List

I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Today we are  doing a Theme Reveal post hosted by our dear blogger friend  Vidya Sury.


My secret list

This is my third stint at the A to Z April blogging challenge and I am as clueless as I was the first time. Today all my blogger friends are revealing their themes for the challenge, almost all of them have decided upon a structured theme, topics, flow of their posts for the entire month of April. Why then do I find it so hard to come up with a list? Why am I so incapable of making a concrete plan and sticking to it, it will definitely make life more comfortable and the challenge easier to tackle.

I think I know the reason for my hesitancy; I was a breech baby and have always gone against the normal course of nature in life. Just today my friend told me something interesting while we were working on a project; she said, ‘You always choose the most difficult way to do things when there are simpler and more convenient ways available’. Maybe it is a flaw, or a condition, a conscious choice, jury is still out on this one.

Maybe I look for problems and challenges subconsciously, I am not satisfied with easy, or maybe I am a glutton for punishment, whatever the cause may be, I love challenges and there can be no bigger challenge for a writer than a month-long blogging challenge. So I am leaving the list undone, unwritten, unrevealed for yet another year and hope to complete my challenge, successfully.

    1. by the way I'm one of the co-hosts assistants (Pammy Pams unconventional alliance) and thought I'd mention that your webpage link on your google profile took me to -http://sulekkha.blogspot.dk – while I'm glad you had a post up that led me here, it might be worth the effort to change the link for the #atozchallenge so other bloggers can find you easier.

  5. Hi Sulekha,

    Your approach sounds a nice and laidback way to enjoy the challenge. First time for me to join in the A-Z, will look fwd to the reading. All the best.


  6. A breech baby? I can't even use that as an excuse! I don't like to do things the hard way as much as I like to live on the edge! But here's to us, Sulekha! I know you'll churn out fab posts!

  7. I did that last year and though I have a theme this year I'm really winging it. Look forward to your posts.

  8. Haha…flying by the seat of your pants! Sounds like a good way to go…being a bit spontaneous! 🙂

  9. One theme which makes me feel jealous~~yeah I was jealous and angry with myself because your theme is sooooooooo beautiful 🙂

  10. Not a bad idea at all.. keeping it spontaneous. I'm struggling with my theme already… The Qs, the Xs and the Zs..

  11. Secret theme? That's a good one!

    My theme, ‘26 Positive Takes on Life’ will generally focus on positive, truly heart-warming, real-life incidents involving ordinary persons whom we can all emulate.
