2020 Challenge Observations

Another year is over. Wait... give it back. I haven't finished my WIP, holiday projects, crafts, baking apple pie, decorating Christmas cookies, and a million other things I still need to do. Oh well, someone flipped the calendar so I'm stuck with it. Here's a few reflections on the MFRW author 2020 challenge. Like the 2019 challenge, I knew from the start that I wasn't going to do the entire series. In fact, at the beginning of the year I hadn't planned on posting at all. With the final post, I had ended up doing 47 out of 52. Some topics were easy. Either they didn't require much thought or they were a repeat (or near repeat) of a topic from previous years.

Links to the 2020 posts by alphabetic topic are below. Again, congratulations to the other authors who participated. And to our readers I hope you enjoyed our revelations whether they be personal or about the writing life.
