Stars!!

That's right. The ones out there in space. That's where you've been aiming the past few weeks, right? You set your goal of completing the Challenge and aimed for the stars.

Well, guess what? Only seven more letters to go. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel. That's not just faint twinkling anymore. That's the bright glow of the Challenge's end.

And when we reach it, we'll be stars. Super stars!

Now, let's get it done.

Yes, I find it most satisfying when having finished the challenge before.

Almost done! I have picked up a few more followers and almost made it 50. I was hoping for a few more but I am pleased since, only starting this blog at the end of January, I have come this far. Good luck on finishing the challenge. I know I will be celebrating my very first challenge ever.

It has been a struggle to read and comment. I have come to the point that I only comment on those who I have followed and follow me. My followers have really increased.

Stars is a good S word. Mine will be similar, Star Wars! (but it's not up yet, you can still read my R post though Robot Boner (don't worry, it's not dirty or anything)

orneryswife said...

Stars indeed! I am going to make it through with all the posts, and have enjoyed it immensely! Fun to have so many followers who comment! That is what makes blogging a social activity, and one of the reasons I started blogging five years ago.

I am already thinking about next year's challenge!

Well done Diane! I'm afraid I flunked it last week. But I'm picking up again today! All those who actually manage to complete the month are true stars.

Jean Katherine Baldridge said...

How beautiful the stars are! I look up at night, on a clear cool night in the area of New York where we live, and I am completely transfixed by how they make me feel.

Get it done, now ...is a fantastic concept. My Celtic/ Roman Britain theme is continuing so well I think I've amassed enough to make it into a self standing book. And I'm loving my first April Challenge.

Aye, aye, Captain. Millie and Willie are gearing up in their space suits right now, read to rocket to the end!

Susan Kane said...

My beloved and I go outside to look at the stars almost every night. If the night is truly clear, he moves the telescope outside. Magic.

Sandy said...

Hot stuff we are...sizzle pop, lol

DayDreamer said...

I can't believe how close it is to the end now. As this month has gone on so the night sky has been getting clearer and I can finally see those stars.

Kathleen Jennette said...

I love the heavens above, and I can't believe I have made every single post on this, my first blog challenge! Feels stargazingly good!

So it's not the light of a train coming at me from the end of the tunnel?
Whew. That's a relief.

Wooowho! So close to the end! I am so surprised that I have kept up as well as I have with this challenge. Had a recent issue, but picked it back up and moving on.

Thanks for this! I didn't know I could blog almost daily.

Alex, I just wanted to thank you for posting this encouraging link about stars, for it made me remember Don McLean and his unforgettable song, "Vincent" (Starry, starry night). And write.
