Thinking and Follow-up #AtoZChallenge

Don't confuse your path with your destination. Just because it's stormy now doesn't mean that you aren't headed for sunshine.I delayed a long time this year before finally committing to the challenge–mostly because now I’m in school, and I’m having a hard enough time finding time to write fiction, I wasn’t sure I was up to the challenge of daily blogging.

Somehow, I managed.

I think it had to do with guilt: I wasn’t doing the whole, huge guest post, blog hop promotion thing for the latest installment of the Red Slaves series, and I had liked the attention that effort had earned me last year. There were a few letters I would have preferred to have skipped, but I did get to share some of the research I had done in a context where I didn’t have to worry about how or whether it might bog down my story. In particular, I enjoyed blogging about Ghilen, the Dashka Stone, and Kazakhstan. There were a few others, too, that covered unorthodox or unusual topics. I’m enough of a pedant that doing something different that way makes me happy.


Of course, I promptly took almost two weeks off of blogging. But I’ll be returning to at least weekly blogging this week with a Sunday ROW80 report. And I have reviews and author interviews coming up this month too. So maybe now I will have returned to a blogging happy medium. And I’ll probably return again next year for more A-to-Z challenge blogging fun.

    • LOL – If it makes you feel any better… I can promise you that I’ve described myself since HS as “the high end of mediocre.” 😀

  4. Congrats on finishing the challenge. I found your posts interesting and perked my curiosity about the book.
