You made it! 30 posts in 30 days! Today, write a recap of your experience. What was your favorite prompt? Least favorite? What have you learned?
And another writers challenge comes to an end. Somehow this one was a little easier to write for then the last one I did. But, 30 posts in 30 days. Really makes me think of burnout. Not the pit of despair that I talked about on day 20, but writers burn out. It isn’t easy to come up with 30 posts so fast. I was given the topics which help but just trying to think of what to write puts a toll on the mind. After this I need to take another break.
Looking back over the post I see I had some pretty decent ones. I think my favorite one, and it wasn’t the longest or the best written, was Day 5 Aspiration. The more I talk about what I want to do in the future the more excited I become. Just the other night I was talking to some friends about my dream and they really got me excited over it. It feels good to have something to strive for in life.
Now, for my least favorite..well this is a hard one. I think my least favorite was Day 25 Learning. It isn’t that I didn’t like the post. It is my least favorite because it is the first time my post caused a controversy. I got a lot of messages about this one and about what ME is. I kind of jumped the gun when I wrote the post and didn’t do the research first. But, as a writer not everyone will like what you have to say and will let you know that. So I guess that post helped bring me up in status. I feel I am in the Big Leagues now.
As for what have I learned…well I did learn about a new disease (ME). I literally learned from my mistake. I also learned humility and how to accept that I did something wrong and admit to it. After all, I am human and we all make mistakes.
So, as the challenge ends so does this post. Spring is in the air and I will probably be stepping away from the computer for a bit to enjoy the season. But don’t despare. There is a lot going on in my life and I know I will have more to talk about soon. So until then, go out, enjoy the day….and see you soon.
