Theme Reveal! - A to Z Blogging Challenge

For the last four years, I've alternated between military theme and legal theme for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

This year I wanted to do something different.  But what to do?

I decided to have some fun on the blog.  So I'll be doing ~drumroll~ the Letter-of-the-Day quiz.

Each day will have ten prompts.  If I can't find a prompt answer for a specific letter, I'll think of something to surprise you.

Some of the prompts will be followed by a photo [all photos are taken from WikiMedia Commons].  Others will be followed by a “fill in the blank”.  Your job is to select the word, beginning with the letter of the day, to correctly identify the prompt answer.  Write your answers/guesses on a separate page, NOT in the comments.

For the comments, I do NOT want you to post your answers, because that will ruin the fun for those visitors who come after you.  What I DO want you to post in the comments is an anecdote that relates to one of the prompts.  So for example, if you've met the famous person of the day, or you've vacationed in the country of the day, or your occupation is the occupation of the day, or you've read the book of the day, I want you to write about that.  So at most, you'll only be giving everyone else the answer for a single prompt.  Or, if you post a cryptic comment, you might not even do that.

The correct answers for the prompts will be posted the following day, so you can check to see how well you did.

Let's practice.  Here are the prompt categories [note: sometimes I take liberties with the categories, so you might need to think outside the box].  Today isn't a "letter of the day", so I'm doing random prompts.  Don't focus on a single letter.

1. Country

2. Famous Person
3. Vehicle
4. Animal
5. Plant
6. Sports
7. Everyday object
8. Book or Movie
________________ Marvel

9. Occupation 
I provide clients with legal advice and may represent them in civil or criminal trials.  I am a/an _________________.

10. Mystery word

The April 1 post will have the A prompts, and the correct answers to today's prompts at the bottom.  Remember, DON'T WRITE YOUR ANSWERS IN THE COMMENTS!  Just post an anecdote that relates to one of the prompts.

Thank you and have fun!


  1. Dena, this sounds like a heap of fun. For now I am going to write about #4 because it just happens I went to a talk on spiders on Friday night (2 ex-students of mine were presenting). I know exactly what spider that is but I won't say as I read the rules *grin* (I love their faces with the two huge eyes and the smaller ones that make like a mouth). I'm a bit of a spider fan and am happy to have them living in our house (much to The Hub and Barbarians horror *grin*).

    1. I've seen some of the spiders you have down in Oz. Yikes! The one in the photo above is NOTHING like those monsters!
