From dictionary.com: A highest point or state; culmination.
We have reached the culmination of the A to Z Challenge! It's been fun, but I would be lying if I didn't say I was relieved it was done. I do enjoy pushing myself to write to a prompt, though, and it worked toward that purpose this month.
For some letters, I had huge lists of things I would enjoy talking about, and I had to whittle it down to just one or two (or more, in the instance of "K" and any other I may have forgotten about). For others, I was bordering on pounding my head on the desk to figure out something, anything, that would fit the letter without being too cheesy and that I could actually write to on that particular night. I may have to use some of the other words I listed and didn't use for future posts.
No matter what, I feel it was worthwhile. I met so many great people, found so many valuable blogs, whether because they had to do with my craft or because they interested me for other reasons (or both). I had no idea what the blogging community was really like, and how welcoming everyone was, until I did this challenge, and I'm grateful for that.
I'm also looking forward to being able to keep up with those blogs I found, rather than everyone posting every single day. It was too much to keep up with, and I know I probably missed some wonderful posts. I do intend to go back and look further back through everyone's blogs, as well as to try and visit those blogs I never got a chance to on the list.
I'd like to thank our hosts for doing all the work this must have involved and to putting it out there. Thank you to all of you!
How do you feel now that it's done? What do you feel you gained by doing this, and was it worth it? Think you'll do it next year?
