Victory Dance

Day 22 :  #AtoZChallenge

I realize we have four more posts before this #AtoZchallenge is complete but I am claiming victory, today. All remaining posts for this challenge are written and ready for their debut on the designated day. Hooray! I did it!

I’ve met a number of wonderful bloggers along the way, found great new sites loaded with valuable information, and made new friends. I wish I’d had time to visit every blogger who participated. Over the next few weeks I plan to visit as many as I can on the list.

Today, is my victory dance, tomorrow maybe yours, or perhaps the very last day of the challenge. Whichever day you claim – dance and be proud of yourself. We have written every day for 26 days!

Congratulations to everyone who participated and many thanks to Arlee Byrd for creating this challenge and to his team for being our cheerleaders.

Five Things I’ve learned from this challege:

  1. Great minds think a like – when bloggers choose the same topic, I learned something new from each one.
  2. Planning is the key – life has a way of interrupting when we least expect it but a good plan can save the day.
  3. Accomplishments come with the right mindset and attitude.
  4. I can write every day. It doesn’t have to be a blog post, but I can write. I’ve done it for 26 days.
  5. Creative ideas and stories are all around us; sometimes they come from the simplist things. All we have to do is pay attention.

    • I’m asking the same question! Hopefully, I can get back to writing stories, prompts, and working on my novel. We’ll see. Next week, I’m headed to the beach. Yeah! Thank you so much for sticking with me during this challenge. Hope you will continue.


  1. I have learned so much in this year’s Challenge. It has been wonderful visiting blogs. Some blogs I am now following because they spoke to me. Funny, but I knew I could write. I also knew that my theme, which is the same theme that I have been writing about for the last four years, would give me the motivation that I needed and spur my creativity. What I didn’t realize was how closely interwoven my theme is within my heart.
    It is almost time for me to start gathering all the material that I have, time for me to seek an illustrator that harmonizes with me and my vision for the book and then to acquire an agent that will become a team member. So, I am excited about what happens next.
    I have especially enjoyed reading your blog postings. They have enlightened and broaden my knowledge in many ways. Thank you for your openness.

  2. Loved the victory dance! I had never participated in a blogging challenge until January. I had never even heard of them. My first efforts were with Jot It January and that led me to sign on for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I could say ditto to your whole post. One thing that sticks out for me is that I can now look on a writing project as a challenge and stick with it every day, unless there’s an emergency. I’m very glad I participated and met many great bloggers along the way. Congratulations on finishing your posts early! Shake those hips and raise those arms high in the air.

    • Thanks Linda, this was my first time too. I have met so many new people, the challenge was more than worth it. But, I don’t know how much these hips will swing anymore – but where there’s a will, there’s a way. LOL. so glad to have met you and I hope you will continue to visit the Cow Pasture.
