A to Z April Challenge 2012: Reflections
I am proud of myself for completing this challenge. I was not sure that I would be able to when I signed up. I mean I hoped I would but life does have a habit of getting in the way when I have tried to do something like this in the past. I am just glad that this time that was not the case.
The challenge helped me a lot. There were many times throughout the month that I did not feel like writing. There were days I would have rathered be doing anything besides writing. Still I knew I had made a commitment and I had to see it through. I can't say that I always did my best writing but I wrote. That for me was a major milestone for me.
The challenge forced me to work pass any issues I was having writing wise. I wrote pass the mental pain of being blocked on some days. I also learned a few new terms in the process.
I also was able to check out some awesome bloggers. Everyday was an adventure as I would click on blogs I had never heard of. There are a lot of new people who I have followed and am now reading. I feel lucky to have discovered them.
For me the A to Z April Challenge has helped me to get on the right track writing wise. I can't wait until next year's challenge. I can already feel the ideas forming as I write this. Thank you all who have started following me. Your support helps so much.
