Q is for Quests

Dear Quests,

There are many of you in my life.  Some small, some big, all playing a part in how I live, what I aim for, and what I do.

There is a common thread among any quest that I embark upon: I have amazing friends and family to walk beside me.  Every single person has their quests, but we walk with others and we cross paths with others.  We may never know how one encounter will affect the rest of our journey.

It's kind of the same when writing: I set my characters on a path and see where it takes them.  I see what kind of characters they meet along the way.  I don't know who or what I will meet in many of my life quests, but I do know I'm fortunate to have those who walk beside me.

*What quests are you currently embarking upon and how is the journey going for you?


  1. This whole blogging mullarky feels like a bit of a quest. Not sure where it's going though. The AZ challenge has been fun but I wonder how active people will be after it's over. I imagine a lot less.

    Anyway, off to continue the adventure...


  2. I am currently on a quest to finish a 1st draft and this quest is always full of crying, despair and bumpy roads. Soon, very soon, I will be on a querying quest. Wish me luck!

  3. i like quests... this a to z challenge is one....

  4. I agree with mooderino--this A to Z challenge has been quite the quest. It's been a challenge for me to write--and and challenge for all the readers.

    Nice post!

  5. Well said! I am currently in the quest of writing a query letter. It's been interesting so far...

  6. Hmm... my newest quest is an MG novel :-) (at least, I think it's MG... or at the very bottom end of the age-range of YA...)

  7. Hi Laura, I'm stopping by via the A-Z linky list. Nice to meet you. :)

    This post reminds me of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life". Have you seen that one?

  8. I love this Q word. Right now I am on a quest to get published. So many hurdles there, but I'm hopeful ill get there one day.
    Great meeting you through the A-Z!

  9. The blog is very good!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
