First off, I'm just kind of happy I made it through, as my followers can attest to I was not up to anything close to my regular writing at the end there. I got behind and with any sort of theme to focus my posts on I floundered I bit. But I caught up and finished on time (yay me!)
I loved doing the A to Z Challenge, I love writing and I need as much practice as I can get but I think to do it again I would have to have a theme. Which is weird for someone as unstructured as I am about my writing but in order to guarantee that I have something to write about every day I need a prompt.
In the process I found some great new followers, (Yay!) welcome by the way. I am happy that you guys decided to stick around, it's a whole lot of crazy and random around here. Feel free to join in the fun! (seriously I love comments, I get all giddy)
I also found lots of great blogs to add to my read everyday list (or at least every second day as I don't do much when I work a long shift). I fell I love with Seriously-WTH? I really relate to a lot of what goes on there. I found myself drawn to Reviews From My First Reads Shelf at first it was because I thought the name was catchy but then I was like hey...this is pretty interesting.
I think one of my favorite places I visited through the A to Z Challenge though was The Growing Writer. (I would tip my hat but I hardly crafted at all in April and therefore haven't made one *sad face*) But seriously, the concept was a brilliant one and the stories were unique and well written. (one of those advantages of having an idea of what you are doing I guess) If you haven't you should check it out.
A friend of mine told me yesterday that he is a writer because he writes (and he is a fantastic writer) but I am on the opposite end of that spectrum. I write because I am a writer. (the voices would drive me even more insane otherwise *giggles manically*)
What was your favorite part of the challenge? Did you find any blogs you just adored?
