Z is for Zing

It all comes down to you. It doesn’t really matter what anyone else says, you are the one coming to the page and writing your story. My hope for you is that you will find your zing, the energy and enthusiasm to carry you through the ups and downs of sitting your bottom in the chair and writing until you are finished.


What is your zing? What makes you feel so enthused that the words seem to fly to the page?

Thanks for joining us here at Story Dam during this #AtoZChallenge! Make sure you come back on Saturdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to see what we’re sharing to help you on your writing adventure!

To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then use the blog hop linky to visit as many other bloggers as you can. For the 3rd year in a row, the StoryDam team is sharing A to Z posts with Writing Quotes & Encouragement as our theme. We hope you enjoy them!

  1. There are so many things that I consider my zing. One of them is the unquenchable desire to share my viewpoint on life and how I believe life could be if only we would recognize the value of others.

    I enjoyed visiting Story Dam. I am also a member of your tweet community. I am going to put forth an effort to be more proactive.

  2. My zing is knowing I crafted a story. I want so much to share my work with people. I want to write stories that entertain and make people think. I want my stories to have themes of fitting in, love and loss, betrayal, etc. Having that desire to craft such stories gives me the zing to write them.
