Hanging On

So, I've still got my blog on life support. Since I haven't written creatively - or even regularly - for quite a while now, and the poor thing really doesn't get many visitors anymore, I've been wondering if the humane thing to do is just pull the plug and let it pass peacefully. But I just don't have the heart. The truth of the matter is, I love writing and I love blogging. Regardless of the fact that my mojo has been on the back of a milk carton for a couple years now, I'm just not ready to let it go. I keep hoping that someday I'll be inspired to really get this blog to breathe, walk and speak once more. So I continue to stop by ... hold its hand ... talk aimlessly a little bit ... change the flowers ... that sort of thing ...

My dear friend Cassie invited me to join a network of writers. Writers of all types, walks, styles and professions. I joined with enthusiasm. While I haven't made had time to peruse some of the other members' blogs yet, I'm hoping the company of other writers will help. If you are here from the group, visiting mine ... Just please go back in the archives a few years. It's much better back then. ;) And leave a short-and-sweet comment so I may return the favor.

This is just my 2 cents...Instead of focusing on how your posts should be like some famous short story, you should just be you and write. Why does writing on a blog have to be so grand with each post? I still love to run but know I'll never in the Olympics or something. I still run though even if it is just 3 miles at a time or whatever. Have you ever thought that maybe some of your "least of them" posts might have had a greater impact on someone like a simple smile at a stranger takes someone's day from doldrums to meaning. Be you and forget the rest. Because the rest is just like some tight necked social party where every is pretending to like everyone they meet that in my personal, humble opinion sucks.

Sound words, Shawny - Thanks :)) I guess I'm hung up on the fact that in the early years, this was all about creative writing, storytelling, mental painting, whatever you want to call it. Indeed, I should just yap. ;) If the rest is meant to come back, it will.

xo Love you, friend!
