Theme reveal on this list.
Not everyone uses a theme but many people like me find it's a great way to come up with content for your posts. It can be challenging to make your subject fit into every letter but we're all creative in some way as bloggers. I changed my theme near the end of February and had to scramble in March to get everything done. I hope most or even all my posts will be ready today.
All my theme have been tied to being a writer and this year is no different. The idea came to me as I cleaned off some bookshelves and weighed which books I wanted to keep and which ones needed a new home. I did the same with my library of movies and TV series. Why did I keep the ones I did? Because I like to re-read and re-watch them. Some of the books are references though most are fiction. All of these different media have taught me something as a writer. One of the most common recommendations successful writers have for beginning writers is to read. Read a lot. And learn from that.
My theme will be a sharing of the books, movies, and TV shows that have taught me something that has helped my writing in some way. Most of the lessons are very short and few are profound. But many are fundamental. My posts are short, informational and hopefully interesting enough that some of you will check out my recommendations.
Every year during A to Z, I end up with a list of books, music and movies that other bloggers have posted about. I complain about the growth in my TBR pile. Now it's my turn. I'm going to try and add some things to your TBR pile before April is over.
