There's quite a few things that I've really enjoyed from working through these prompts and being a member of the challenge community:
- It's forced me to write every day, whether I felt like it or not, whether I had a lot of time to spare or not. That's the sort of dedication I always need to hone in myself, and hopefully I can start using some of that dedication to work on WIPs as well as my other writing duties.
- It's let me discover my blogging voice. I was having a hard time with that, determining exactly what "persona" I should be using on my blog. I'm glad to discover that my "author persona" is sort of just like me, only wittier ;)
- I've been getting blog hits! Yes, that's a totally selfish reason, but there it is. Blog hits! I love it. I'm addicted to my Google analytics.
- I've been able to read a lot of great tidbits and advice and find people to follow and overall just be part of a community of writers, which is the coolest thing ever.
Anyway, I'm a blogging challenge convert. I'll be happily looking forward to more challenges in the future. I'm also glad to hear that the Facebook group will stay open so I continue lurking around it like a creeper *grin*
