Well, another March Challenge has come to an end. This was the 10th one for me. At the beginning of the month I wasn’t quite sure I would be posting for 31 straight days. I wasn’t sure I had the topics or energy to do it.
However, I persevered and here I am posting on the last day of the challenge as I did on the first day of the challenge. What kept me going? You, dear readers. I know that we don’t participate in this challenge just to get comments, but I must admit that it was your comments that kept me going.
So, for that, I thank everyone who read my posts and left a comment. Although I write, words can’t express the appreciation I feel for each of you. Your encouragement throughout the month were what made want to write every day, even those days when I felt I didn’t have much to say, which was most days.
You were my cheerleaders for completing my Candy Cane Welcome wall hanging. You laughed at my lame attempts at humor. You reminisced with me when I looked back at the past.
As much as I enjoyed hearing from you on my posts, I must also say how much I enjoyed reading your posts as well. It was nice to reconnect with bloggers who were part of the Challenge last year and participated again this year. It was also nice to continue this writing journey with those bloggers who post every Tuesday on SOL. I have learned so much by reading your posts as well as picking up some new formats, some of which I tried during this Challenge and some of which are tucked away for future reference.
I titled this post Endings and Beginnings. I’ve talked about endings so let me just say a few things about beginnings.
I guess the biggest beginning is that the Tuesday Slice of Life posts begin again. I know the new year of Tuesday posts began in January, it just seems to me that going back to them after the March Challenge is like a new beginning.
I am hoping see many of you back here on Tuesday. I know I will be here.
Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for hosting this Challenge. We are all better writers for having written this month.
