As the Challenge Winds Down...

What has been the best part of participating in the Author Blog Challenge? What are your suggestions for improving the next Author Blog Challenge?

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*

  1. I agree so much that being forced to write every day was helpful and can, hiopefully, bleed over into my WIPs too!
