Z is for Ba-ZINGA! Thank goodness for Sheldon who popularized this expression. It is the perfect statement of personal triumph. I finished the A to Z Blogging Challenge and overcame a writer’s block! Ba-ZINGA that, you Inner Critic!
In January, I was in the middle of a writer’s block so I started working through a creativity recovery program. I did not finish the program because I realized a few things about myself as a writer:
First, I am not a novelist. I am a blogger who likes to write short essays and fiction. Second, I need an audience, and plugging along by myself on some novel that probably will never be published is a stupid waste of time. Third, I will not make a living as a writer, so I cannot give up the day job.
These considerations I embraced and now I feel free to write to my heart’s content and spread it out in the blogosphere.
Thank you for joining me on this semi-autobiographical Wandering Journey through so many unrelated topics. Someone commented that striving to be a polymath is an ambitious goal. It was never about that. It was about the journey. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
One more thing before I close this project: Z is also for “zzzzzzzz.” That is the sound I am now going to take for the next month or so as I take a little break.
My best to you all.
