A-Z blogging challenge for 2014 has come and gone, seemingly without my realizing it. And, though I fell behind once or twice toward the end, I finished this year's challenge right on time. Really, I can't believe it's already over. I feel like I just finished my post for letter A...
Year 4, for this blogger, was a far cry from the tortured state of despondency that was most of Year 3-- I'll not mention the irony of this year's focus on death being easier to blog about than last year's foray into supernatural creatures, we'll leave that for my therapy sessions *ahem*
As always, A-Z brought with it, not only 26 days of unbridled and far-reaching knowledge (disguised as entertaining and thought-provoking blog-posts), but a chance to connect with new faces while reconnecting with familiar faces--who had perhaps drifted away--from A-Z's past.
I am always amazed by the ingenuity and inspiration that comes from lumping a couple thousand folks together all with the same creative freedom of doing just as we please....so long as we adhere to the path alphabetical.
Sometimes we struggle, sometimes we succeed...some years are great, some years are soul-crushingly-tough-beyond-measure---but, the one thing about A-Z that doesn't change (or at least hasn't in the 4 years I've played along), there is never a shortage of supporters/cheerleaders who are struggling and succeeding right alongside you. Anybody can do a month of alphabetical blog-posts, any month of the year... A-Z lets us do it all together.
Thank you A-Z for reminding me that, while writing is often a lonely existence, it doesn't mean you have to write alone!
