Today we are reflecting on the April A-Z Challenge. I have a few things I would like to say.
First I , would like to thank you all for taking the time out to read my blog. I know I said it before, but I really do appreciate it.
Who else besides me found out that this is called a challenge because it can be HARD? Both because it is tough to blog every day and also because coming up with topics for every letter of the Alphabet is mentally straining. Plus, sometimes I was blogging at 8:00 or even 7:00 in the morning. I am NOT a morning person. It is hard for me to even function before 10:00 am. I can't drink coffee either!
I began the challenge by giving you all a little poem called Anger and ended with a story on Zap! (I was electrocuted). Beginning with a poem was a bit prophetic, because what ended up happening is I eventually stopped giving you my little stories in favor of almost exclusively doing poetry. I'm not sure I was giving the people what they wanted, but it was the best I could do in the a.m.
Will I do this next year? I'm not sure I will, but I will definitely consider it. This challenge was so tough for me at times this month, but it allowed me to stretch my writing legs and reminded me why writing was my fist love. Last year did the same thing. That is why I am not ruling out the challenge for next year.
I hope for the rest of this year that many of you will continue to come by my blog from time to time. After all blogging is not much fun if nobody is reading. It's been amazing getting the comments and the wonderful feedback and even when I churned out nonsense I still saw that people were willing to read and comment.
Thanks for another great year with A-Z!
