Reflection - A to Z challenge


The times were tough and ideas running low, some letters were easy-peasy, some tough as trigonometry. But somehow, I managed to complete the challenge. 26 days, 3 blogs, 78 posts. Yes, I am proud.

The themes on which I wrote were:
 

I had spent the whole of March preparing for the challenge, writing poetry and posts, scanning my hard drive and processing pictures. My neglected hubby was on the verge of searching for Blog-Addiction habillitation center :P

I couldn't have been survived without the amazing Angels who kept visiting my blogs, every single day. Their constant support and encouraging comments, kept me going.

I am thankful to the complete A to Z team for organizing this Challenge. This was the first time I had participated with continous posts and I am so glad I did. I got a chance to read many astounding writers. Their brilliantly crafted posts used to make me edit mine :) Thanks to Corinne for managing A to Z FB group and Mommy Shailaja for kicking our butt everytime we were lazy :P The camaraderie and support of the group is Legen-wait for it-dary :) 

A special mention to Red-Handed. Even though she didn't participate in the challenge, she read all my posts - 26 of them. Girl!! you will kill me with such sweetness :)

In between job hunting and preparing for interviews, I tried my best to visit all my readers and in coming days would continue to do so.

In case you didn't participate in A to Z challenge, here are some amazing bloggers that you should definitely read. I felt their words, I cried with them, I was inspired, I laughed and I learnt lessons too. 

***********************************************

Do you love Dogs - Read Carol's 26 adorable yet touching tales.

Fiction
I became a fan of Damyanti's fascinating style of story telling. Aditi's short stories would leave you mesmerized. Sri's fiction series almost killed me with suspense. Each day Nabanita had a beautiful tale to tell.

Inspirational 
Shilpa's powerful and profound 55 fiction on marriage gyan. Shailaja's introspective posts would make you look back at your life. Vidya's words came at I time when I needed it the most, and  Suzy's posts helped me assemble the pieces of my life. Ananya's story of courage and will power would make you stand and applaud. Psyh Babbler traverses through her memories - ups and downs and how she overcame them. Yes inspring!!

Books
I thought I was a bookwork, until Tulika came up with 26 authors!! and Corrine with 26 books!! I should die in chullu bhar paani!!

Foodie
I have bookmarked them for emergency situations!! Sluurrppp!!! Shalini and The weekend Baker

Wanna know about Indian festivals, hop over to Usha ji's blog.

Looking for movies to watch over weekend - Check out Kajal's Movie Masala and Amit's biggest movie blog.

Jayanta's posts on India and society would make you sit and think back. Beloo's brilliantly articulated thoughts on Indian education and spititualism are profound.


***********************************************

These are just handful of the many blogs that I have read and enjoyed. Will be sharing more in my future posts :)

Thank you  !!
