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.

I'm an unconventional writer who never knows how the project is going to turn out until it's finished. The project could be an article, short story, poetry or photography. For me that's the blessing of creativity. Come along with me as we embark on an adventure. Enjoy the ride.

  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.

    1. 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.
