On the island of St. Maarten, in Marigot on the the French side, there was a hole-in-the-wall breakfast place, where the owner would call out to you as you passed, "We have ZEE BEST BREAKFAST here!" He was a French Canadian, transplanted to the island, and his exuberance always made us laugh. It also got us to eat there.
For me, the A to Z Challenge has been at times an anchor and at other times a chore. But on the whole, it gave me something to connect into each and every day during a very difficult month (Mom passed away on 3/31, I was on that jury thing, and I've had a cold for two weeks). Best of all, it brought me more than 20 new friends who now follow me and whom I follow. I am grateful to those of you who stopped by regularly and left comments - that was definitely the best part - getting to know you and to see the creative things you came up with on your own blogs.
I have a commitment to supporting other writers, so if any of you have something you would like to promote, please let me know. I am happy to do a blog interview with you, as I did for Arthur Wooten (W is for Wooten), to review your work, spread the news of your successes or give you a chance to be a guest blogger. You know where to find me.
So, with the exuberance of the man from Marigot, I say unto you, it is Zee End of Zee Challenge! I wish you all Zee Very Best and look forward to following you into Zee Future!
