#AtoZchallenge Reflections on the A-Z Challenge

Wrap-up time for the A-Z Challenge. 
What did I learn?

1. This is a good place for me to work the challenge --
the posts didn't get mixed in with other posts (as happened last year).

2. I liked having the framework of the challenge to force myself to get this body of work refreshed.

3. It's much easier to create ONE new piece of art a day vs TWELVE (I'm looking at you, "N").

4. I am ignorant about the Canadian provinces.
I will remain deliberately vague about that and will quietly update my error.

5. Already thinking about possible themes for next year,
and will start working on the art to see which direction I want to pursue.

6. If I have my posts prewritten, then I can spend more time reading other A-Zers.
My social A-Z game was abysmal this year.

  1. Oooh, I love the map. That's great.

  2. Wow extra points for originality! Normally I know nothing about tartans, but believe it or not I read this article recently. You've probably already seen it or perhaps even blogged about it, but just in case you haven't - enjoy :)

    1. Cool link, Lissa, I hadn't seen it! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Love the map! I definitely liked the challenge better this year when I had all my posts pre-written so I had more free time to go visiting :)

    1. Yes, I'm working on mine for 2017 now!

  4. Having participated for four years I hope my reflection on what I have learned each year will be of interest to you. I wrote about historic hotels and inns this year and loved the experience. Your beautiful tartan map is fantastic. Cheers for having finished the #Challenge.

    1. Thanks Stepheny. Will follow up on your Reflections!
