Today is the last day of the A to Z Challenge. This year’s challenge was really laced with ZING! Zing means a lively, zestful quality; zest, vigor, animation, force, vitality, etc. Every blogsite I visited had zing.
When I read the definition, I wondered about other things in my life that have ZING so I made a list and thought I’d share with you.
My marriage, my daughter and–believe it or not, after delving into my so-called memoirs, my family.
Sometimes, my cooking–even when it falls flat!
My driving–especially when I’m thinking about writing–just ask my husband.
My pastor, my SS teacher … wait, my entire church!
My dreams have zing. Just ask my husband!
When we went home this past weekend, I noticed my cactus flower was blooming. Definitely some Zing!
I conclude … I’m surrounded by ZING!
Now that A to Z Challenge is over, I hope to concentrate on putting more ZING into my writing. More description, visual setting, stronger conflict and characterization … and ACTIVE verbs.
What have you learned from A to Z — as a participant or as a reader? Share. How can we put more ZING in our writing and in our lives?
