Of all the thoughts and emotions garnered from this year’s Challenge, some strike me in their simplicity.
It is about writing with fervor and belief. If the writer does not really get behind what has been written, it turns into a pot of over-cooked goulash.
It is about sharing your passions with your audience. Laying one’s talent out on a cutting board for all to see means the writer has to have an emotional bond with the writing and the topic.
It is about structure and discipline. A writer who stares blankly at a blinking cursor and does nothing? A writer will write no matter what spills out on the ‘page’.
It is about supporting other writers. ‘The loneliness of the long-distance writer’ is what a writer lives with all the time. BUT with this blogger community, support is one http://.... away.
It is about growth. A writer must grow in the writing. Ever read some of the old stuff packed away in a box or file or disc? The writer evolves and improves. Hopefully.
Well, there you have it. It is impossible to say “Thank YOU!” in any other creative form to the founders, organizers, and supervisors of the A-to-Z 2012 Challenge. I am certain that great sighs are heaved, champagne flutes clinked together, and well-deserved vacations are taken. Thank you.
