Zis is the End !


As Adele croons in my ear I write the last blog of this challenge. Very late and rushing to meet the deadline, in a few minutes it will be the 1st of May everywhere in the world. I’m skidding and sliding and hoping to do it justice.

This is the end of a challenge that was taken on enthusiastically, my reason to finally begin writing blogs, something that I always wanted to do. I discovered a lot through the month about myself as well as others in my life. Random thoughts that aimed to share, to humor, to scare, ideas to reflect upon and love to be expressed all tumbled out of me. The alphabet challenged me and tormented me. With lots of support and encouragement from family, old friends and new ones made within this challenge, I persevered and got here to zee end today.

To those who would be thinking of taking it on next year, I would recommend think it through carefully. It is tough, a lot of grit is required not to throw the towel in. And, I am glad I didn’t. It revealed to me that I had a lot to say and I could express it to my heart’s content. I also discovered that I had supporters who carried me and championed me to here, the end.

The blogging will now ease off for a while, I will concentrate on the stories that I neglected while I was absorbed in meeting this challenge. Thank you to all who have read and thank you to all who have shared their thoughts and encouraged me, and helped me get zis end of the A-Z Challenge.

Where you go I go
What you see I see
I know I’d never be me
Without the security
Of your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we’ll stand

  1. To write blogs is not easy. It’s non fictional. To say what u want to without hurting near and dear ones and still not make it long and tiresome! Congrats Vasudha. It’s a milestone. Celebrate today. U deserve it.

  2. Beautiful Vasudha. I always knew you had it in you. You are one gutsy person who knows what she is talking about. You inspire me and make me believe that I can also be an author one day. Hats off to you dear. Keep the words flowing over all of us.

  3. Cheers to that. I’ve honestly enjoyed reading your blogs and looked forward to reading them with the thought let me see what Vasudha has in store for today. Some I’ve related to like you were writing about my experience. I love your flow of words, you! It look so easy I’ve been tempted to give it a try too. Maybe…someday…who knows. But keep it going. As an editor I’ve read a lot of junk. You’ve got what it takes.

    1. Thanks Preeti, your support has been great. I wish I could say I’ll write for you everyday still but I’m so burnt out right now. Though the blogs will write themselves soon enough as even today a number of thoughts have flitted and flirted.


  4. Congratulations on finishing! It was tough, I finished a day late myself (to be fair I was at a wedding all day Saturday). I’m finally having time to catch up on all the blogs I found through this challenge. I’ve enjoyed discovering and reading your posts!
