The lovely people over at the A-Z Challenge have kindly given us guidance questions to use in our reflections post.
Those questions are:
Did you accomplish your goals? YES!
Did you post every day? YES!
Did you make new friends? YES
Did you enjoy the Challenge? YES
OK, that’s it…reflection post sorted lol 😉
What? You want a bit more than that? Oh, ok…
I hadn’t blogged for a few months and only decided to take part this year at the last minute. During 2012 i wrote a short story (or scene) every single day, but since then I’ve been struggling to get back into the habit of writing daily. So my goal was to use the challenge to get back to that happy place lol. Now thats definitely worked. Ive just got to make sure i keep it up now lol.
Ive picked up some lovely new followers (and followed a few extra blogs myself) during this challenge, which to me, is the best thing about the A-Z. You get to ‘meet’ bloggers who you would never have known about before. I managed to visit every blog taking part that listed themselves under (WR) along with all the bloggers who posted comments here. What i didn’t manage to do was visit the regular blogs i read who were taking part, but I’m not superwoman. So if i missed you I’m so sorry and i’ll try to do a bit of catching up this month 🙂
Of all the blog posts i read during April (and there were hundreds) there was one that, even now its all over, i still think about. Christine Marie over at her blog Fragments wrote a “G” post about her insecurities. I went down her list going yep…yep…yep… A very powerful piece of writing, please do check it out and see how many of those statements you’ve said to yourself.
Then work on reversing those negatives 😉
It made me think about my writing, my lack of confidence, and that i really need to stop being so negative about my work. I’ll never be the best writer in the world, but do i need to be? Ok, thats enough, or this post will turn into an Insecure Writers Support Group post lol.
Ive had a fun but exhausting month. Its made me realise how much i miss blogging…so i guess you could say I’m back 🙂 I’ll be posting at least a couple of times a week from now on.
If you took part in the A-Z how did you find it? Did you have fun?
