Today we celebrate the end of Blaugust. At first I figured I would try it because it was a great way to challenge myself to blog some more, but over the course of it the thing I feel most appreciative for is the amount I learned about writing. I tend to overwork whatever I’m writing and never get anything done. This month made me get something out there, even if it was raw and emotional and maybe not what I wanted to write.
But often it was what I needed to write.
Thanks for all the fish
First, thanks to Belghast, for organizing this whole crazy thing. We’d never have gotten started if it weren’t for him.
Second, thanks to Ashgar, who kept riffing with me on a number of posts.
Big thanks to both Cannot Be Tamed and Alternative Chat for their questionnaires which gave me some structure to post my thoughts into. It was a huge help and I had a blast with both of those questions.
Finally thanks to everyone who commented on posts, retweeted me, and all my new friends on Twitter. The new social circle is the prize that is most valuable to me out of this whole exercise.
I’m probably going to start blogging on a twice a week basis, with probably more cogent blog posts. I will be trying to keep up writing in general, but I have enough things I need to sit down and work on that I am not short of projects.
I’m sure there will be something going up for the end of Blaugust, so should definitely check out the Nook.
