Plumb Tuckered Out

April, much like November and NaNoWriMo, is tiring. Different reasons for being tiring, but tiring nonetheless. NaNo is a hectic and fast paced but it's a me against me thing. April brings a different level to the writing. It's me writing, but also making the rounds, reading, commenting, responding. More giving of my time to outside influences, maybe.

And that's a good thing. NaNo is all about removing myself from reality and focusing on my novels. Blogging A to Z is all about making connections. And really, who doesn't like connections. Introverts maybe, but then introverts probably wouldn't be participating in such a challenge. Though I could be wrong. Heck! for all I know I was the only extrovert participating this year. I'm tired but in a good way. I feel accomplished and dedicated. And that's saying a lot right now. So no worries, Pickleope, I'm still going to be blogging. I miss my "I Made It Mondays" and my "Friday Photos."

Two things before I go. First, I hit a blog milestone during the A to Z Challenge: 300 posts! Yay! But even more awesome? All my new peeps! I'd like to give a great big welcome to all the newcomers to my blog. You found me through A to Z and stuck around and that's a major ego boost! Glad to have you around for my journey!


  1. I'm an introvert (an extremely shy on at that) and did the A to Z Challenge. Probably why it was so hard.

    1. Also, I made up that fact. I do things like that. Actually, I'm more inclined to think there are far more introvert bloggers out there then we'd suspect. Blogging seems like it would be a safe way for introverts to connect.

      I mentioned my Ted Talks obsession a bit back, there's a video about the importance of introverts that was really phenomenal!

  2. Good on you for completing the challenge! Now take a few days off and catch your breath. We'll be here when you return.

  3. I'm an introvert! For some reason, I find it MUCH easier to talk to people online than in real life. I can hold conversations about anything with anyone online, but put me at work (where I have been since October) and I can't even make small talk.

    I think all of us need a nap after this Challenge. Or a lot of caffeine. Maybe both.

  4. I fell behind on the challenge toward the end and had to make up for letters. I did VW together and because last time I featured our VW Jetta Wagon, this time I did something different: Very Weary. I can empathize.

  9. I love reading your blog posts and have given you the Liebster Award. Please stop by and pick it up when you have a chance.

  10. Well done for completing the challenge. Getting around to and commenting on new blogs is definitely the most tiring part.
    I've found some great new blogs though, including yours!

  11. Well you did it that is the main thing I'm just passingthrough on my roadtrip.
