The Big Reveal

I know I already revealed my theme a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I'd reveal it again for the purposes of this blog hop, co-hosted by Mina Lobo and David Macaulay.

My theme for the A to Z challenge this year is going to be Greek Mythology. I've been researching it a lot recently for one of my assignments for my Creative Writing Masters, and it's been really interesting. It should make a good topic for the challenge, and I certainly have a lot of material to work with.

I've scheduled my first few posts already, and should have them all scheduled by this time next week. The posts will mostly be about the myths that I've been reading, and there will be some focus on creatures in Greek Mythology as well.

I'm having trouble with some of the letters (Q, Y, V) because the Greek alphabet doesn't have them, but I'm sure I'll come up with something!

Hopefully you all enjoy what I come up with :)

  5. There can never be too much writing on Greek mythology :) My favorite thing about it is that everyone discovers it their own way. Happy A to Z!

    Good luck. This is my first year with the A to Z challenge, even though I've watched it grow over the last 3 years. I'm also taking part in the Reveal. I'm trying to share some positivity with my #WriteMotivation friends on Twitter (and to help keep me positive in the process)
    Hope to see you around :)

    1. You make a good point, I guess it is at kind of an inconvenient time of year! I don't know what made them choose April. I have two assignments due in on the 24th, but I'm scheduling all my posts now so I'll have time to work on them.

  18. Hello Miss Laura the Q could be Quest . . . . . Those Greek Gods were always off on Quests, like the quest of Cadmus

    And for V, Vengeance . . . In Greek mythology the Erinyes "the avengers" were female deities of Vengeance. . . . . . We all like a bit of vengeance

    Y . . . . AH DAMN, but there is always Young Greek Gods.


    Good luck but I know you will do a great job.

    1. Ooh some good ideas, I could certainly use Q for Quest :)
      For V I've decided to cheat a little and use 'Venus' which is the Roman name for Aphrodite...shhh! Y is the main one I'm struggling on, but I'm sure I'll find something :)
