2018 #AtoZChallenge Ideas

   
     Hey there readers...it's been a while, I know. Life has been a rollercoaster. I'm not sure if I'll make the A to Z, but in the past I've conjured up a few topic ideas to share in case anyone gets "stuck". So here are a few that I've come up with...feel free to use, share, or contribute any ideas that you have. I'll probably update over the next few months. Oh, and by the way...Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, Happy Everything to you all.



1. Blockchain/Cryptocurrency/Fintech - X is for XRP

2. Defunct Retailers - G is for Gadzooks

3. Things I Hate - Z is for Zippers Constantly Getting Jammed

4. Strangest News Stories - M is for Mad Pooper

5. Space News - K is for Kepler-90i

6. Psychology of Writing - G is for Graphoanalysis, W is for weasel words

7. Animals in Fiction - by name - Y is for Yeller
                                            - by type - W is for wolf-dog (Jack London's "White Fang")

8. Serial Fiction - V is for The Virginians by W M Thackeray

(Did you know Andy Weir's The Martian was originally a serial at his own website before it was a feature film?)

9. Digital Resources for Historical Research - A is for Archive Grid

10. World of Smart Products - N is for Nanoleaf Rhythym

11. England's Royal Family - W is for Windsor (but they used to be House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha)

With the big wedding coming up, there's a lot of interest in the monarchy and quite a few themes that you could pursue.
