Good morning, my friends!
Come on in, take off your sweater and stay a while! This morning the sun is shining and the garden is a collection of color and scent. Would you like to join me outside for a cup today? It’s a good excuse as any to get some fresh air and sunshine 😀
Do you mind if I reflect a bit on the past month? It’s been quite a ride. I participated in two..yes, I know that it was insanity, but hear me out…challenges during April. I created new poetry every day for a month for National Poetry Writing Month and participated in the A to Z Challenge. And I survived!
I’m glad that I had a chance to participate in both challenges. I used poetry for both challenges–I wrote a new poem for NaPoWriMo every day as well as hunting down poetry forms from A (awdl) to Z (zen) for the Blogging from A to Z challenge.
Both stretched my creativity to the outer limits. I discovered the art of found poetry and diciphered poetic forms. I had a good time.
I did find that my poetry written for NaPoWriMo seemed to get a lot more attention than any of my A to Z posts. It was an interesting phenomenon and now the scientist in me wants to know why. Was it the particular challenge or the subject matter? Something to ponder until next year.
Did you read some of my posts from either challenge? Did you enjoy one or the other? I am always looking for any kind of feedback so I can make my writing that much better.
Would you like another cup of coffee? The household is still asleep inside so we have time to share some time. What have you been up to this past week or month? Is the weather finally becoming more spring-like?
Weekend Coffee Share is brought to you weekly through Part-Time Monster, the genius behind #weekendcoffeeshare. Come join us and meet some new people 🙂 I look forward to reading about your week.
The Reflections Post is your time to tell everyone what’s on your mind about the A to Z Challenge. Good, bad, indifferent or however you feel, tell the rest of us. Whatever you feel is worth saying, then say it. Even if it’s just your blog stats for April–that’s valuable information that might help us get some ideas. Say what you have to say and we will listen.
