Story-a-Day Challenge: Complete (31/31 Stories Written)

As of today at 1:50 PM, I crossed proverbial finish line for the Story-a-Day challenge.  On my lunch break at work I scribbled furiously into my notebook.  Finished writing story #31 and so completed this amazing challenge.

As with anything else, there are some definite mixed feelings.  Joy at having persevered and finished the challenge.  Awe that such a thing can be accomplished.  Relieved, a little, that it’s over.  Sad to see it go.  Proud to have conquered writer’s block.

But no matter the mixed emotions, I’m throwing my arms in the air and running a victory lap.  It’s been an amazing ride.  I’ve learned a lot about inspiration and perseverance.  And that sometimes a prompt doesn’t always speak to you – but if you stare at it long enough you can make it work.

I want to say a huge thank you to anyone and everyone who stopped by to read my stories, spoke a word of encouragement or maybe just thought “heck yes, that’s cool.”

I totaled my word count for all 31 stories, and it reached 23,832 words.

I could not be happier.

I will definitely be signing up again next year.
