It’s the 8th of May and this is my first post of the month for this blog. After coming up with 26 posts for last month’s A to Z Challenge, I felt the need for a break.
The challenge was fun for me. I jumped in on a whim, having never even heard of it until April 1st, the kickoff day for the challenge. I had to hit the ground running. I thought I’d focus each post on something glass/art related. That lasted until “j,” but I did manage to tie some subsequent posts into my original theme, so I’ll count that as a win.
Jumping in at the last minute didn’t afford me as much time as I would have liked to visit other participants’ blogs and see how they were responding to the challenge. A goal for next time, if I participate again.
Apparently some bloggers are already ramping up for next year’s challenge. Yikes! I’ve given it a teeny tiny bit of thought, but I know that just planting that little glint of an idea in my mind will likely compel my brain to roll it over and over and over for the next 11 months. And who knows, maybe next spring my challenge posts will pop out of my keyboard like polished stones from a rock tumbler. Or not.
My current goal, though, is to keep at least some semblance of regularity to posting here. I readily admit that at this time my heart is more into my other blog, “What Rhymes with Stanza?” Probably because I don’t have any glass projects currently underway. That could change at any moment if one of my glass concept notions completes its tumbling session and presents me with a shiny design idea that I just can’t pass up.
Congratulations to the many other participants, whether they completed the alphabet or not. We’ve all earned an A for Amazing!
