Essentially, I'll be catching up on sleep, eating at a table instead of computer, and adding to my WIP (work in progress). Between beta reading, editing, and pre-publishing excitement, I'll be here once to twice a week--and I hope to find you here.
So what does that have to do with happiness?
All good things must come to an end. The rest, or Zzzz's, that result from a job well done are a part of the process. We have to take the time to sit back, rest, and appreciate what we've accomplished. This last month I've made so many new blogging friends, rubbed shoulders with old ones, and experienced so many laughs, smiles and memories. Thank you everyone who participated, and all my wonderful new friends and followers. YOU ARE AWESOMESAUCE!!!
If you missed any of the awesome, here's your shortlist to get up to speed.
How to Find Happiness through:
I'll see you back here May 6th to close out the Gratitude challenge. What? You missed that one? Check it out with letter G.
Here's a huge wedge of cheese to all you A-Zers who made it to the end. You are awesomesauce! Will you continue posting every day? Why/why not?
You're awesomesauce, too! Thanks for the cheese and amazing posts! I know at times I'll be going back to them (:ReplyDelete
Yay! It's been great, Fida, and make sure to say "hi" when you pop back in on occasion. =)Delete
Yay for reaching the finish line!! Now it is time to sit back and revel in the beauty of a job well done.ReplyDelete
As long as you'll sit back and enjoy along with me. =)Delete
Hmmm, cheese! :)ReplyDelete
I'll go back to posting 2-3x a week, but now I have a number of new blogs to read and blogger buddies to keep up with. :)
I know what you mean! I actually had to cut back somewhere in the challenge--for fear of burning out entirely. My editor would have loved that. (NOT.) I'll look forward to your posts!Delete
thank you for the many inspiring posts--congrats crystal on a great job!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lynn. It's been a blast getting to know you a little more through this whole experience. =)Delete
Yeah! We did it! We are close to finishing our big project at 507 as well, so once that is done, I am off to Zzzzz land myself! Great job!ReplyDelete
Yay us! Cheese party, incoming! =D And here's a cheer to keep you going on that 507 project: Woot, woot! Go, go, go!Delete
Some of that cheese would come in handy right now.
I'll be glad to get back to my WiP too, even though I enjoyed the challenge.
Take all the cheese you want--it's virtual. =D Or better yet, come back for more when you've exhausted your supply & I'll dump more on you.Delete
It has been a wonderful reading your posts throughout April, Crystal. Thank you for all the sharing - cheese included. I'll be taking a break, and perhaps catch up with non A-Z participants around the blog. Then continue on perhaps with new project. Meanwhile wish you all the best.ReplyDelete
It's been awesome to meet you, and do stop in when you have a moment, eh? =)Delete
I know what you mean about sleep! :) I will be there too once this next novel is DONE. So wait, you are PUBLISHING SOON??? I believe I missed something. SPILL!!ReplyDelete
Oops. Wasn't supposed to leak that yet. *shifty eyes* Believe me, there will be an announcement. Soon. Ish. ; )Delete
Zippety - doo- da! Yay!ReplyDelete
Here's to awesome sauce :)
Well done Crystal - you done good girlfriend :)
We done good, girlfriend. =) Yippee!Delete
You know, taking a break is excellent advice. I didn't join in the shenanigans this month, but I still had a hard time keeping up with everyone. I think I'll go take a nap through May.ReplyDelete
Ooh, a month long nap? That's sounds amazing. Let's do it!! In fact, let's get them to designate May as official nap month. =)Delete
Zee end indeed! Congrats on finishing the challenge!ReplyDelete
A month of Blog...
You too! Thanks for stopping in.Delete
Congrats on completing the Challenge! :)ReplyDelete
You too! It's been intense, eh?Delete
So glad the challenge is over and I can go back to cheese eating too!ReplyDelete
Too much cheese fr just 3 crackers there.ReplyDelete
What?! No such thing.Delete
Yay! What a fun month, but I won't be posting daily because my fellow bloggers might go zzzzzzzzz on me. Unless I can convince them that cheese will come out of their computer if they visit me every day. :)ReplyDelete
That would certainly get me there every day. =DDelete
It's been awesome, but I don't think I'll be posting everyday coz it's also been exhausting. I welcome the break, starting with today!ReplyDelete
Congrats on finishing the A-Z challenge! High five!
Wahoo! We did it, eh?Delete
Ah yes, time for a good, long rest. Congrats on making it through.ReplyDelete
Thanks! And congrats to you too!Delete
Hello....I just found your blog. I too will be catching up on some sleep....rest....ZZZZZzzzzz This challenge has been a lot of fun. I might continue with another challenge I found, but not sure yet. Congrats on finishing too!ReplyDelete
A Dose of Jules
I hope you do continue with another challenge. (Even if it's not one on the blog-o-sphere.) Challenges are what make like invigorating.Delete
So glad to have found you in Blogland and congratulations for finishing the A to Z.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Carol. Looking forward to getting to know you better. =)Delete
Awesome sauce, lol. Cute new word you coined. Congrats on finishing the challenge. Gratitude challenge, on no....didn't see that. Planned to do the 3rd reflections linky. Might have to venture over and see what's that's about. Trying to keep the consistency mojo going...and not loose the momemtum from the challenge.ReplyDelete
Oozing Out My Ears
Good for you, Sandy. Way to get moving. (Incidentally, Awesomesauce is a YA writers word. Yup, we geek out on it.) ;)Delete
Congrats on getting to the end! Great job with your posts.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed yours, Nick. What a FUN way to face the challenge.Delete
Love the theme of your A to Z posts and I'm always happy to meet another cheese lover! Yes, it's a time to rest up a bit and also get back into that WIP- tomorrow. Tonight, I'm going to relax and read.ReplyDelete
Cheese rulz, eh?Delete
Hey! Congratulations on making it to the end of an awesome challenge! Sweet dreams - or should that be cheesy Zzzzs? ;-)ReplyDelete
I'm totally down that the cheesy Zzzzs. In fact, that may becomes my "bed time" phrase!Delete
Congratulations on completing the Challenge! :)ReplyDelete
You too! We did it. Yippee!Delete
Hooray! April was an awesome month. And I hope you know, every time I visit your blog I always leave wanting cheese and crackers. Seriously. Every time. ;)ReplyDelete
Aw. I think that's the nicest think anyone's ever said to me. ;)Delete
Congratulations on finishing your happy A-Z! :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lisa. *lifting a bowl of soup*Delete
Congratulations on completion of the A-Z!!! I think I may give it a try next year :)ReplyDelete
I've said that for 3 years. LOL. I hope you do--and I'll totally be there with you. =)Delete
Congrats on winning the challenge. Have some cheese. :-)ReplyDelete
I think I will. Thanks!Delete
YOU are Awesomesauce!!!!
love & love,
LOL-zers. You make my day, Maggid.Delete
:) I just like you. Have I told you that before?ReplyDelete
LOL. You're awesome, Amy.Delete
