Z is for Zeal

We made it. The end of the month and the alphabet. Woot!


Z is a tough one and I'm going to use similar words for both of my blogs. They do work well though and I think will be a good last post  for the challenge. For this one, we are going to talk about fiction and fitness in relation to...


Definition: great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective.


In fiction we pick the story we work on and hopefully it is one that we have enthusiasm or zeal towards in order to have the drive to get the work down. Each draft takes pushing and effort. A little zeal towards the project helps, though one can't rely on just enthusiasm the whole time, but it certainly can help the process.

Characters can have zeal too, whether it's for the good or the bad. Conflict can be incorporated when two different great energies/passions go against each other. There is plenty of room for zeal in fiction.


I think it's also pretty common for people to have zeal when it comes to fitness. When posting on forums asking about how to force oneself to do a type of activity they hate because it's healthy, the most common answer is: don't. Find something that you will enjoy and try out different things because you never know. Something you didn't expect to enjoy might be a type of fitness that you have zeal towards in the future. And our goals can be something we need zeal towards in order to reach. So, get zealous and enjoy your fitness.

Do you have zeal?

Hello there.
Congratulations on surviving the A-Z Challenge! Well done too for finishing your recent 5k. I didn't get to visit your blog during the crazy month of April so I'm popping over today from the Road Trip. My goal is to visit all the blogs that linked up, before next year's challenge starts up again.
