Yup. And considering the amount of time it took me to write a summary should be the best proof it was not easy..
Not sure why on this picture the white looks like ecru. Anyways. Dress is finished now, picture tomorrow, (just in case there is a way this would somehow leak to FB and spoil the surprise… I do not trust the internet! 🙂 ) so I can write 😀
Along with A-Z Challenge I was doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge which was about posting one post each day. 🙂 Succeeded both! 🙂
I loved the challenge. Honestly, I did not even know and expect that it`d push me BACK into creative writing after a break I took… probably around 15+ years of writing only journal/personal blog in my native language. I used to write poetry… Used to write… Lots of things. I blame it on the Big Switch – moving across the ocean, changing the language… I was missing everyone and everything for the first year or so, and somehow it all blocked something in me…
Some sort of a “writing constipation” if you will 😉 (I know, I know, the “metaphor” sucks. Oh well. Can’t be too serious 😉 )
Sometime earlier this year, February I think, I started doing something with this poor blog of mine – as you can see in the link (bookbug2012) I’ve had it for few years now… wrote next to nothing… I started writing reviews, promoting books… But it wasn’t filling the spot.
I found out about the challenge on Book Bable I believe on the first day of the challenge 😀 I went in full on!
… and it turned out to be a true kick in the right spot! Maybe the blockage did not disappear totally, but there is a good size hole in it now, and stuff starts spilling….
I also got the courage to join some groups (Insecure Writers Support Group being the first one 🙂 ), met lots of people who encourage me and help me to be confident that what I write is not silly or worthless…
And for that – thank you so much, lovely organizers!!!!!
