Reflections on A to Z Challenge

As part of the challenge, any challenge, reflection must occur. In other words, what was the good, the bad and the ugly of the challenge and my roll in it.

I have decided to just make a list while I let my brain purge the information.

1. I actually completed a challenge! Ok, so I missed the letter Q, but there was exentuating circumstances beyond my control. Feels good to complete the challenge

2. Even in the midst of pain and sorrow, writing can be an outlet.

3. If you set your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. In the past I got in a rut of not posting because I couldn't figure out what to write or had so much stress and everyday life "get in the way". This challenge helped me know I can write and it doesn't have to be daily, but just write!

4. I loved having a perimeter. It was specific to a letter but broad enough you could pick anything! I made a list and would write out what I knew I wanted to write for specific letters. Others, I just winged it!

5. There are great writers out there and I found different ways to complete the next challenge

6. Speaking of: You do not need to stay in the box and write a post. It could be pictures, quotes, bands, actors…anything and it is ok! (I tend to stay in my box)

7. I have found I love comments! I guess I need some kuddos, love, acknowledgment. Not happy with the vanity of it, but there it is.

8. I still hate Blogger scheduler and Blogger scheduler still hates me. This made it difficult to post. I had to be on top of my game and not write a bunch of posts and let it automatically post.

9. Blogging on Saturday felt weird and sometimes hard to do because it is my play day and didn't really want to blog on weekends.

10. Will I do the challenge again? Yes but need a break in between. Will I recommend the challenge to someone else? Heck yeah. It was fun!

Pat yourself on the back if you attempted and/or finished the challenge. Sometimes we do not need to finish something to be successful. Kuddos to us all!
