A-Z Reflections

In the past, the A-Z Challenge has been one massive struggle, where I've felt like I was drowning in a sea of blogs, and comments, and panic because I didn't feel like I was visiting enough new blogs. It turns out, if you relax a little, the challenge is awesome!

I signed up this year at the very last minute, which is not unusual. I've signed up at the last minute every single time. What I enjoyed about this year was writing a series of mini posts from my two main characters from Game On - because it allowed me back inside their heads, ready for the next book in the series. Although the next book is not from Leah and Radleigh's POV, they do feature a lot more heavily, and it was cool to write about the way their relationship has changed. It was a good exercise for me, and the bonus is that I made some cool new bloggy friends, and gave away a bunch of ebooks, too! :D

    My first challenge years ago was stressful, but relaxing makes it better.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed this year's challenge :-) I did it as part of a group of authors on our joint blog, which was much easier than taking on the whole challenge myself!
