Reflections from the April 2014 A to Z Challenge

This is my third year participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge but my first year reflecting on the challenge.

I’ve loved every minute of all three challenges. I went to a place I only dreamed about in the past my first year. Thus my dream came true-a writer. The first year I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. My first try at signing up was not successful but someone assisted me and I was good to go.

I’ve completed each year’s challenge. This year was a challenge to say the least. I was ill the whole month of April but I pressed through. Most days I wasn’t sure what I’d written but my mission was accomplished. Several times I was too ill to write but when I felt better I caught them up.

I think you all do a wonderful job managing the challenge. I don’t know the rules to writing so I can’t give any advice or make recommendations. I do appreciate how you can code your blog so people are aware what you are writing and they can decide whether or not your topic is what they want to read.

I enjoyed reading the blogs of the Host and Assistants. They were encouraging, helpful and entertaining. The blogs of the participants were great also. I got to observe the more experienced writers and learn from them how to become a better writer.

Thank you for your hard work, dedication and striving to make each year better than the year before. Keep pressing forward.

I will be back for next year’s challenge.

  1. Your reflection gives me encouragement. This is my first year participating in the challenge and I did well to get all my posts written and posted. Now that time is a bit less hectic, I am seeing there are many other layers to the challenge. So I feel like the kindergartner who doesn’t really know what’s going on outside of my own little sphere. Just wait until next year though cause I am out of kindergarten—it’s on to the primary grades!
    Glad you are feeling better, too. Kudos to you for not giving up.

    • Mary, glad to be an encouragement to you. I’m learning new things that goes beyond the challenge. I also host a writers group and attend another one. I expect my writing to get better this year. Thanks for visiting. Blessings.
