Lynn, thanks for all of the fantastic information and resources you gave us this month. It's a credit to you that such a caring and supportive community has sprung up from your challenge. At times when I started to feel overwhelmed, it was refreshing to come here to the forum and know I wasn't alone.
One of the (many) things that made an impression on me was the short piece you did about the middle of the month to the effect of "use it now, don't save it." I have a tendency to think I should save my best ideas or sentences for a more opportune time. It's actually a relief to be told in clear terms just to go ahead and use them.
I wrote a blog post on A Sense of Family with my take-aways called "Five Lessons Learned While Writing." You can find it here:
Please tell your guest authors that I enjoyed their contributions very much, too. Thanks again for all the encouragement. It's been a great challenge!
