I would be lying if I said that this writing challenge has been easy; in fact it’s been harder these last few weeks than it has been all year. With 5 days to go, I feel like I’ve been on a very long flight and now I’m starting my descent into a new and exciting place. I can actually see the horizon now, and just know that there are great things beyond it.
Thriving on challenges
Being a determined person, I thrive on challenges and always see them through to the end. Even though I’ve found this experience tough some of the time, what keeps me going is knowing that it’s going to lead me to greater things, to happiness and to my dreams. I’ve learnt so much over the year and it’s difficult to sum this up in one sentence (so I’ll leave that for another post). On 1 May 2012, one year after my writing challenge began, my whole focus is going to change – I will once again be free to write what I like when I like.
The horizon I can see is not the end, but just the beginning.
I hope you will continue to follow me on this exciting journey.
Sticking with challenges
I have quite a few tips on how to stick with challenges, but would first like to leave this post open for comments, to gather your thoughts on this subject. I’ll then summarise them in a post after my writing challenge has finished.
So, what helps you stick to the challenges you set yourself?

Hmmmmm, that’s a really difficult question lol.
For me, I think it has to be rewards, anything from just feeling I’ve achieved something, to a bar of chocolate lol 🙂
Home stretch now hon 😉
