Here we are, about to start another month… and with that comes another Monthly Theme! As May only has three letters in it, the theme I have chosen links very well indeed. May is named after the Greek Goddess of Spring, Maia, and pronunciation-wise Spring is also the shortest season… however all seasons have six letters in English, so this link is a little more dubious… but little is better than none at all! And we are still in Spring here in the UK, so that ties in nicely as well.

So, what is the theme for May? I hear you ask. I shall tell you! It is…

…it’s the little things…

If you so wish to use the theme for one or more of your posts during May, here are all the details you need:

There aren’t any rules actually, just a few guidelines:

  • Write a post (or more, if your imagination is well and truly fired!) based on the theme I provide. The post can take any form / genre / length you choose.

  • Link your post to the post on this blog (Beyond the Sphere) that introduces the theme for the month (so basically, THIS POST for May’s theme!)

  • Visit other bloggers who take part, and read their interpretation of the theme.

  • And that’s it! Oh, and if you could pass the word on, that would be lovely. The more the merrier after all!

And have fun!

  2. Tom, is no one doing the theme this month? I did try to do a pingback, I’m not sure if there is just a delay for it or if you’re still having trouble with it, but thought it was a little strange that there are no comments so far this month…

      1. It worked at about 2:30am my time, Beth – it was waiting in my moderation queue and my computer was beeping away with an email notification. I released your link, but was too tired to use the keyboard at that time…! At least it’s come through though… yay! 😀

    1. I don’t know if anyone is joining in with the theme this month, Beth… I seem to be having problems with pingbacks. I’ve posted quite a few posts based on the theme and linked them all to this post, but only my latest one has come through as a pingback. Thanks, though, to you for taking part… I shall check your post out shortly.
