DELIVERED D LETTERS

26 letters…
26 posts…
Ah yes…the A-Z Challenge.
What can I say?
Well of course thanks…
To all my new followers…
And all those that commented…
And definitely the hosts…
But my thoughts? My feelings?
Well…
It was different than I thought.
Although I prewrote most of the posts…
Anticipating that I didn’t want to feel frantic…
There was no way to anticipate…
The amount of time in reciprocation.
I felt a bit overwhelmed…
Actually, a lot overwhelmed…
So many writers…
So many blogs…
Am I glad I participated?
You betcha!
Because the best part…
Is being part of a community…
A community that shares the same wants and desires…
Fears and insecurities…
And the love of writing.

Always, Em-Musing

Congratulations on completing the challenge! It's truly a commitment to the community, and quite a blogging achievement.

Well done! I know how overwhelming it can be, but the great people you meet are worth it.

If you plan ahead, then yes, the biggest Challenge is visiting others.
Your theme was a lot of fun.

Writing a post each day for 26 days was daunting, but adding in the visits to others in the challenge is an enormous thing (which are both reasons I didn't participate). But new writerly friends are superb.

Overwhelming did not even begin to describe it for me.

Congrats on completing the challenge. I, too, felt overwhelmed and stressed by it all. Don't get me wrong, I had fun but I am certainly glad it's over!

Thanks for your support and encouragement throughout the challenge!

Very nicely expressed. No doubt that the reciprocation is the biggest challenge of all. I fell way short of what I would have liked to have done. Maybe my Reflections should have been a big apology, but I guess most of the bloggers are pretty understanding.

I did it one year and it was exactly like you said: awesome but also overwhelming. :-)
