A - Z Writing Challenge: Z

The letter for today is: Z, where I feature zeal and zeitgeist.

Over the last month, I've been full of zeal to finish this challenge. My mind focused on the task to the exclusion of everything else. When my husband wanted to talk about something harmless like tell me about the plot of a film he had watched, I would become impatient.
With an effort, I consciously shrugged off my zeal to center myself on real life.
A zeitgeist immerses him or her self in the spirit of the times. People with similar zeal have formed a group akin to a movement. I guess they employ the same type of zeal as I did to finish this challenge.
The A - Z challenge was my spirit of the times, therefore, using my zeal, I became a zeitgeist.
