Z is for Zzzzzz #AtoZChallenge


You have reached the end of the 2018 A to Z Challenge! Whew! Whether you planned it, winged it, stumbled or breezed through it, you deserve a pat on the back! Good job!

And now, go get some sleep.

Literally. Figuratively. Go and relax. Take some time off. Do something lazy and fun. Don't forget: Relaxing is important. Us writer-y, bloggy types tend to constantly go for the rush of writing, or feel like we should be writing, or thinking about writing. But it is just as important to let your brain rest occasionally, and recuperate for the next project.

So. Go sleep it off, and don't feel bad about it! We'll see you on May 7th for the Reflections posts!

  4. Taking some time off sounds rather pAwesome but I probably won't do that until June and even then I plan to not vanish completely. I've done that in the past, though. Thanks for hosting such great fun this month and I'll be looking forward to joining this annual event next year.
