Theme reveal for the A to Z Challenge 2018

Once again I have picked a theme for the A to Z Challenge. This time I aim to entertain rather than to educate. My theme is careers or occupations.

My posts will be in three parts.

I begin each with a piece of creative writing.

  1. An introduction to two people with names beginning with the letter of the day and something about what they do in their occupation beginning with the same letter. (No, Bob the Builder is not one of them!)
  2. Suggestions for further reading, which may be fiction or non-fiction, online or offline.
  3. A link to a relevant passage in the Bible. (This independent blog is now listed on Bible Gateway’s Blogger Grid. Clicking on the link opens a new tab with the passage(s) I have considered relevant.)

I promise that my posts will be very short. Unfortunately I do not anticipate that they will have any pictures apart from the lovely colourful badges provided for the challenge.

I look forward to your visits to Sue’s Trifles and hope that you will click on some of the links to find out more!


Blogging from A to Z in April Theme Reveal

Today is the Theme Reveal Day. If you are taking part in the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge and haven’t found yourself the Theme Reveal Badge, it is here. This year for the A to Z Challenge I have taken my 2013 Challenge as a starting point for most of the posts. In 2013 I wrote posts with an alliterative theme, mostly ending with something relating to the Bible.

For the 2017 challenge I have written posts based around something or usually someone from the Bible. Sometimes it is a fictional story, for example when I have changed the narrator or added some back stories (as a writing exercise). Sometimes my post is a summary.

Some of the characters are well-known, others less so.

I hope my readers will be challenged to consider the original texts in more depth. (If only to discover what liberties I have taken with them!)



Theme reveal for the A to Z challenge

The Blogging from A to Z in April challenge begins on 1 April, otherwise known as April Fool’s day. It may be foolish to participate for the fourth consecutive year, but that is what I am doing here on Sue’s Trifles.  My new blog Sue’s words and pictures (begun in March 2015) is also participating in both the challenge and the theme reveal.

After the preamble I am nervously drawing back the theme reveal curtain to tell you (on World Poetry Day) that one line of an alphabet rhyme will appear each day on this blog. There should also be a relevant illustration.  It will hardly take you any time at all to read (compared with some blog posts here and elsewhere).

A line a day
Is all I have to say.

I am having fun preparing this.  Just a few friends know about this project; they have had various reactions.  I wonder what yours will be.
