Theme Reveal for A-Z Challenge 2020

#AtoZChallenge 2020 badge

The year 2020 is no wonder out of a Science Fiction. I agree that this year was written by Stephen King. The year so far seems eerie and sinister and I would happily jump on a time machine to go back to 2019, where I made such lovely memories.

I was deliberating on a theme for A-Z Challenge for 2020. Initially, I thought of writing ‘love stories’. I even wrote a few of them. However, my mind is so distracted these days that I am not able to write fiction. Life is now stranger than fiction, therefore, it would be more interesting to write about ‘real-life’. I am sure, one day, I would be telling my grandchildren stories about this time when we were stuck in the house indefinitely.

The theme of my series is “Life in the Time of Corona”. I know, this title has now become a cliche. Everyone is using this title which is a spin-off from the title of a book by my favorite author Gabriel Garcia Marquez called “Love in the Time of Cholera”. However, my mind is so lethargic these days that I couldn’t even think of a better unique title. I would be writing my posts based on the emotions, thought, and experiences we are going through now. The list is a tentative one and subject to last-minute change. Hope to have a great April. All the best to all my fellow bloggers who are taking part in this challenge in 2020.

    Wow you have the blog topics down. That’s definitely a good start. I know I have been resisting writing all my posts about it, as there is only Corona on my mind and everyone’s for obvious reasons. Looking forward to what you come up with
