I guess I’d better wake up (as if I’d ever gotten enough sleep!) and get back into the grove of posting again. I tell you, after the A to Z Challenge, it was great to not even have to turn on the computer after getting home from work the last couple of nights, which was why I’d missed IWSG on Wednesday.

But, I didn’t want to miss VikLit’s Celebrate the Small Things blog hop today, so I’m up and ready to get going.
This past week, I’m thankful for:
1. The A to Z Challenge was a blast. It was my first time doing it, and it was worth the hours each day spent posting and reading others’ blog posts.
2. This most amazingly wonderful weather we’ve been having.
3. Claritin for helping through worsening seasonal allergies.
4. That God is my God, patient and faithful to me through all my faults and self-doubts.
Since I didn’t follow instructions on the A to Z Challenge Reflections link very well, I’ll copy my (late) reflections on each new post for a while.
This was a wonderful Challenge – definitely challenging and growth promoting. I feel my writing developed a great deal doing these posts, and my confidence in writing on the fly has been boosted. I can endure stress!
I liked not having a theme. There were some wonderful themes out there, but where I’m at now, not having a theme worked best for me. You could say my theme was my blog – Christian and other fiction, poetry and ideas – except I didn’t have any poetry. But I put out some flash fiction, some ideas, controversial and otherwise, and it was a wonderful experience.
I do wish I was able to visit more blogs, and wish all of the blogs I did visit returned visits, which some unfortunately didn’t. Overall, this was an experience I will look forward to doing again… and again… and again, if I am able!
