As our Write 31 Day Challenge comes to a close, we’re reminded, too, that the year is almost through!
Where, oh where, has the time gone?
In September, many agonized over what topic they could possibly talk about for 31 days straight. Others opted to take the easy route with prompt words, just as we did here. While the words made you think, you still had the hard task of getting those thoughts out of your head and into a post that made sense and sounded decent before hitting the “publish” button. A great many others were super excited to participate in this for the very first time. Our “first” was last year, and while it seems like a lot of pressure, it is worth it! You’ve accepted the challenge, and as you fulfill the task, you feel a sense of accomplishment when you’re written every single day for those 31 days! For me, I’ll admit that this year I had help! I am thankful and very much appreciative for the help Greg has provided in writing when I was out of town several weekends. He carried the blog, and my heart is grateful. I did not want the vision and desire to die off when I did not have the ability to type my heart out … so he did, instead!
For all of you that completed the challenge, congratulations!! YOU DID IT!! And for those that fell off early on or maybe even late in the game, you gave it a shot, and you can try again next year if you desire. The point in the whole thing is to get your creative juices flowing so that you’ll share your story, your heart, and your soul with the world. What you have to say MATTERS! Your story needs to be shared because some one out there needs to hear it. They need your light, your love, and the hope that you’re offering through your words.
Long after these 31 days of October have come and gone, continue to share your story. Continue to write. You are leaving a mark on those in your path and in the world around you. Yes, you CAN make a difference by what you write, and you ARE an encouragement to others struggling … your light helps to fill the darkness they may be feeling inside.
And share some more!
You have so much to offer!
