I can't see into the future. That is part of the reason for this blog.
It's not easy embarking on an Unknown Journey, and on the Blogging from A to ZChallenge.
I didn't fail in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge - I'm still here. But I have failed in my immediate goal.
I had hoped to blog a book about life with my autistic brother in law, Bil. I hoped such a book could help others in similar situations. My brother in law is in his late 50's. Many autistic children, meanwhile, are entering adulthood.
Failure is a good teacher. It tells you that you have gone in the wrong direction.
Although I am an experienced blogger, the "Blogging a Book" thought was not a successful attempt. I need to go back and reassess.
That's not a bad thing, though. I know one thing I did seriously wrong - I decided to be a "pantser" (a term in writing) which is what I am, and not plan the book out first. I was too obsessed with just surviving the A to Z Challenge.
Now, I have to make a choice. I've helped make so many other choices in the past months and years, on this Unknown Journey I embarked on years ago when the relationship with my husband of over 40 years became serious.
Because I had a disabled father, I was not scared off by having an autistic brother in law (in those days, it wasn't quite like what it is like today, I hasten to add.) So, I won't be scared off by this failure, either.
For now, I am so close to the end of the challenge, I may as well finish it. Then, I plan to go back to my normal blogging schedule.
I will reassess blogging a book, while I continue on my Unknown Journey.
