      Thanks, Aditi! I love those word pictures but only found wordle last year when I needed something for a conference. Then I had to remember where it was again!

    Visiting from A/Z Theme Reveal. That does sound like an interesting theme. Cute graphic with it too. I will be curious to check back and see what you write about. Good luck with the challenge!

      Well, you know what word will apply for each letter, Christopher. For more clues, you can guess what my Saturday Book Review posts will be from my Reading list on the right 😉

    I learned this alphabet when a good friend of mine joined the army after high school. We would send not so secret messages to each other. It took forever, but so fun. Looking forward to reading your post. Sydney Aaliyah Michelle 2014 A to Z Challenge

      Tango-Hotel-Alpha-November-Kilo-Sierra, Corinne! Funnily enough – in a quiz I went to this week they asked what was the longest word in the NATO Alphabet (I was tempted to say Alphabet, but it’s the same length as November – which was the right answer!)

    Wow, unique topic, that’s for sure. I shall follow your A-Z’s closely. Anything I can learn from is of great interest to me, and this sounds intriguing. Great choice, Jemima.

      Some were more challenging than others – and some are yet to be written, since on Fridays I am still doing my Flash Fiction challenge, and the challenge is set weekly!

    Now there’s a theme we don’t see everyday…or rather, every year in April. Talk about going off of the beaten path! It’s like exploring an alphabet within the alphabet. Go Jemima! 🙂

    I love how distinctive the themes are this year– and I’m loving yours, Jemima!

    Thank you for being on the team, and such a lovey presence all around. Thank you also for all the support on social media and your blog– I think, together, the Magnificient 7 are going to rock this challenge!

      The themes are wonderful, aren’t they. I’m pinning them on my Pinterest board so I can find them again more easily!

      You lead and I follow, oh Wise One. 🙂

      I suspect I think of really cool themes when visiting people each year. The trouble is remembering them! I know I was planning a haiku theme for a long time – then I had to retitle my new book. It’s all V for Victor’s fault!

    Looks like it’s going to be fun! I read another blog earlier that did Nato for their first year (in 2011) of A-Z. Happy I get to follow one along this year! 🙂

      I started in 2012 so I didnt see that one. I wonder whether we’ll have any uses of the word in common? Probably Foxtrot – it was really hard to think of a new slant to that one.

      Thanks for visiting, Alex!

    What an interesting choice. Some will be quite difficult. Should be fun.

      Thanks, Rhonda – yes, you’re right, some are giving me trouble! The worst ones will be the Friday ones as I do a flash fiction challenge, and I only find out what that is a week before and will have to include the word of the day – for Delta, Juliet, Papa and Victor!

    I love that graphic!
    And your theme sounds great… love the spontaneity! Or have you pre-written them? Also wondering whether they are fiction/non-fiction?
    See you around on the A to Z circuit!

      Thanks, Michelle – I used Wordle.com, but there are so many options to play with it took ages to choose my favourite (in fact I saved four more versions!)

      Mostly it will be non-fiction, but Tuesdays word will inspire a haiku, Friday’s is flash fiction and Saturday’s is a book review – sometimes with only loose connections to the word of the day!

    We used to use this alphabet, along with Military time when I worked at IBM. Because? B, C, D, E all sound alike over the phone and when you have 100 engineers hollering “C as in Cat, Meow!” or “D as in Dog, Woof-woof!” in a huge cube farm, it gets chaotic and louder than it needs to be! Good luck and I look forward to reading your posts! Mary aka ViolaFury

      Oh that must have been awful! I do hate cube farms – I hate people being able to hear me on the phone anyway!

    I can’t believed I missed this! Especially since I’m actually on top of my entries for the A-Z challenge. Never thought I’d even get started… “I’m Going to Complain Now” turned out to be a great theme as far as coming up with ideas. 😀

    I’m intrigued by your theme! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

    Roger that! Excellent theme idea. I used to practice on license plates at stop lights while I was learning the NATO phonetic alphabet. Good fun. But this will be uproarious fun, I’m betting : D

    Interesting theme! Like all great ideas, it sounds simple after I’ve been told about it.

    My theme, ‘26 Positive Takes on Life’ will generally focus on positive, truly heart-warming, real-life incidents involving ordinary persons whom we can all emulate.
