A to Z Theme Reveal Day!

Today is Theme Reveal Day for the A to Z April Blogging Challenge. If you are an A to Z participant stopping by to see what Doorway Between Worlds is all about, welcome to my blog! I look forward to reading your posts. 🙂

A to Z Theme Reveal 2015

The focus of my blog is “communication tips with a creative twist.” I think learning should be fun, so I use storytelling and pop culture to help illustrate my tips on grammar and writing. For the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I decided to write about rogue words — those treacherous words that hold your writing captive.

Is there a word that you always have to check to make sure you’re using it properly? Do you freeze in terror as you glimpse it in your mind’s eye? Does it laugh at you while stealing away your confidence as a writer?

These are the types of words I will be writing about, with creative tips on how to master them.

Back in December I issued a call for rogue words to my readers, and they provided me with many fugitives to bring to justice. If you’d like to join in on the fun, I am still hunting for words beginning with G or M. So if you’re new to Doorway Between Worlds and have a tricky word you’d love for me to tackle, please submit it in the comments. I’ll do my best to write about it.

Or if you want to say hello, please do — I love to chat with my readers!

Stay tuned for helpful posts featuring inept magicians, cruel donuts, brave explorers, and more…

Looking forward to seeing you on April 1st!

Cheers,

Sue

  1. Looking forward reading this marathon of words! for the letter “G”…. why grey and gray – more than the meaning of the colour? and which one should we use? I see both one used often…as an artist, I want to be sure to use the correct one… and in scrabble list, both are accepted.

    1. Hi, Nicole! A “marathon of words” is a great way of putting it. 🙂 I like your suggestion for G, thank you. I will be sure to add it in to my G post for my favourite artist!

    1. Hi Rhonda, thank you for following. That’s exciting that you are working on your first book! I hope my posts will be helpful to you. 🙂 Travel and photo sounds great – I’ll be by to take a look for sure!

  2. Rogue words, what a great description. Some refuse to sit in my brain, making me forever consult a cheat-sheet about them, like “lay” and “lie”. I’d put money that those will be the “L” entry. 😉

    Good luck with the challenge and see you in April! 🙂

    1. Hi, Sara! “L” turned out to be the most notorious rogue letter, prompting lots of reader suggestions. We’ll have to see if I owe you some money when we get to April. 😉 Good luck to you, too. And thanks for coming by!

    1. Thanks, Diana! Most of my words came from my blog readers, which keeps things very interesting for me as I work through this challenge. 🙂
      Looking forward to seeing you in April!

  3. What a great theme! Interesting and informative! Some of my favorite blogs have writing-related themes (whether that be blogging about writing, poetry, fiction, etc.). So happy I came across your blog and I look forward to following you next month and reading more! 🙂

  4. AWESOME Theme, I’m looking forward to the post in April. This is my first year to participate and I’m so excited. Maybe galumph for G and maudlin for M ? Just a thought 🙂

    1. Thanks, Shawn! It’s my first A to Z too, and I’m having a wonderful time already. It’s great to have you here. And thanks so much for the suggestions! Maudlin is a fantastic word – I haven’t see it in too long. I’m noting your ideas down, and we’ll see what concoction I can come up with after everyone has a chance to toss something in. 🙂

  5. Yes! Devilish vocab. I’m so excited. Twenty-six informative and entertaining lessons await me. As always, it will be Sue to the rescue. Tasty schooling I’m looking forward to gobbling up.
    Now, as far as M goes … I must confess, I once confused the term meretricious for meritorious. Very embarrassing.
    Look forward to April. No fooling!
