This is the day to post our synopsis of the A to Z Challenge, so here I go.
To start, it was fun. I nearly doubled my followers, and I met a lot (LOT) of fantastic bloggers I probably never would have run into otherwise!
On the downside, there were so, so, so many participants, that just trying to get to a tenth of them was a real challenge! Of course I've spent plenty of time visiting everyone who stopped by to visit me, or left a lovely comment, but as far as just taking a stroll through the list of participants - whoa.
My #1 suggestion for future A-Zs would be to have the list arranged by theme, or category somehow. I had a lot of fun dropping in on blogs of all sorts, but I would have loved to make it to all the writers/authors/artists blogs especially, and there is just no way I can make it to 1700 blogs in the next year, let alone a single month.
In summary, it was fun, it certainly was a challenge, I learned a lot - for instance, Ursula K. Le Guin once had a cat named Zorro, too - I met some fine blogging folks, and I will certainly be back next year!
Until then, I leave you with an apt visual interpretation of writing a novel - a steamboat being carried over a mountain, from Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo
