Z is for...Zeal!

Hello and welcome to the final post in the 2015 A to Z blogging challenge! And of course, our special guest today is the letter 'Z'!



Zeal: fervor for a person, cause, or object; eager desire or endeavour; enthusiastic diligence; ardor.

WE DID IT!!! HOORAY!! HAPPY DANCE!!



I think it's pretty obvious that most bloggers who have taken part in this year's challenge have shown a lot of zeal, both in their posts and their comments on other blogs. I couldn't be happier that I 1) decided to join this wonderful challenge and 2) actually managed to complete it! It just goes to show that if you put your mind to something, you can do it :).

I'm keeping this post short and sweet as I'm about to crawl into bed and pray that this lurgy I've managed to pick up goes away before the weekend - we're off to a family wedding, and I'd hate to be sniffling all the way through it!

So, just remember to keep showing zeal in your writing - readers can always tell whether or not you're passionate about what you've written, or if you've just thrown something down on the page. We're always teaching the kids in school to show a passion for their learning, and I think the same can definitely be said for authors too!

Thank you so much to everyone who's visited/followed my blog over the past month - I've had a blast, and I'm looking forward to meeting more of you on the A to Z road trip next month! I'll see you in a couple of days for the A to Z reflections post :).

Until then, happy writing everyone!

  1. The great thing about this project is the Zeal and the pride we feel for reaching Z and the crash afterward where we don't want to do anything for days. ;)

    Congratulations on making it to the end!

  3. I also have Zeal as one of my Z words, but alas, that's still a ways off thanks to the internet. :-/

    Welcome to "Z-day"! (Time to watch the iZombie television series?)
    Hope to see you at the after party. I'm looking forward to when the Reflections Linky List opens on Monday, May 4th.
