It’s been 18 days since my last post. I’ve heard people say that if you take an extended absence with posting on your blog, you can lose a ton of readers. I can see that being true. I gained a few followers in 18 days. How awesome is that? In no way do I think I have better things to say than the next writer, but I will say it’s kind of cool to come back to the site and still see things pretty much the same. But I did do some cleaning. I made this place a bit less (in my mind) cluttered. White seems to make everything fresh and new. My ‘Scanner Darkly’ mug up top, not so much. But I can live with that. My hair has never looked better.
So much as been going on this past month or so. As you know, Sprocket Ink has started up and it has been amazing right out of the gate. So many incredible writers with original personalities. Things just keep getting better and better over there. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you must really hate America.
My studio has been increasing in membership daily and I can’t be happier with that community. Every week writers are submitting their posts to us, writing about our weekly prompts and continuing to promote this great community of writers.
But I do know that it’s time to get back to writing some stuff here. It’s time to take a step back and focus on what is going on around me. Writer’s block is funny to me. I will never consider myself a writer. That is also funny to me. I do however, know what it means to stare at a blank screen for hours and having nothing to show for it. It happens to us all I suppose. We just have to get back and stare at the screen for as long as it takes. Tonight it has been almost 2 1/2 hours since typing “It’s been 18 days since my last post”. I’m hoping for a one hour session tomorrow.
