Author Blog Challenge Besties

Noooo! Tomorrow is the last prompt for the 28 Day Author Blog Challenge!!! That makes me sad :(

But, fear not! There will be a WINTER Blog Challenge! Watch http://authorblogchallenge.wordpress.com for updates on that! Moving on...

What has been the best part of participating in the Author Blog Challenge? What are your suggestions for improving the next Author Blog Challenge?

I would have to say the best part of the ABC has been the wonderful people I have gotten to know. So many lovely folks and fellow authors participated. I didn't think there were many people in the world that I had so much in common with. But, I found out that most authors are as crazy as I am. GLEE!

I feel more comfortable knowing that I'm not the only one struggling in the publishing world and wonder if we all got together and yelled, if we could be heard on Mars or Saturn...

Now, there's talk about a collaborative project!! I can't wait!!

Some of the people I have met, I will keep as very close friends and perhaps, someday, meet them in person. Some are over the pond but I just know that I'll end up in the UK one day :) I know I'll continue to peek in on the many blogs I have come to know and love as well.

I only have one suggestion for improvement for the next challenge:

I'd like to see a page for each day on a blog somewhere that I can visit so I can be sure I'm not leaving anyone out when I make my rounds of commenting. Some people joined in late and I just don't feel like they got enough attention.

While the FB group was a fantastic idea, I loathed going through and clicking because the posts opened in FaceBook's browser and not my own. I comment on the fly a lot. :)

I am saddened and a bit relieved. I know I'll not be posting 7 days a week and that's a relief but I also know that after something like this challenge is over, people tend to drift off in different directions. BUMMER. :(

We need to be there to cheer each other on. Sometimes, we all need that little section of fans :)

That's all for today, folks. Until next time, WRITE ON!

  1. I love the idea of the collaborative effort. :) I also hope you do get to come to the UK someday! It'd be great to get to meet in person. :) Hopefully, we won't drift apart now that the challenge is over. Besides, we now have the Indie critique group to keep us connected!

Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
