Theme Thursdays [Name] – 01Mar12

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

March is going to be all about making life easy. This month we will do ‘Pick what you see first‘ themes. So open the book you are reading, continue reading; pick the first mention of any name in it and post the snippet. The only condition is ‘No Ebooks’.. lets go traditional. Easy-peasy!!

NAME – The first name you come across while reading

My THURSDAY THEME for NAME is here.

At eight the next morning Nikki sat at a window table at EJ’s Luncheonette, blowing on her large coffee and waiting for Lauren Parry to pick up her phone.

    Kavyen, I confess that when I first saw the theme earlier today, I thought it was kind of boring . . . Then I flipped through the book I had just finished and realised that the theme fit it perfectly! Names are not just names, and I was reminded of that today thanks to you.

    I shared my link in Mister Linky, but since everyone else is adding theirs to the combox, too, so will I. =)
