Playing Catch up…..

It always seems I am trying to “catch up” as I have a tendency to get behind and rearrange my priorities in the way that works at that moment. For the most part I get important things done. I pay my bills, do the laundry, my homework, straighten the house, cook supper and try to keep hubby happy. And THEN I allow myself time to write. I know I should make it a higher priority because I sometimes see it as self-indulgent. Let me clear….I see it that way FOR ME!! I admire others who make it a part of their daily lives and I get to read their brilliant magical yarns of words. Or see the beautiful works of art in the form of photographs or drawings. Thank you!

I appreciate the people I have gotten to know in the blogging community and the support has been wonderful and overwhelming. When I started writing my blog last summer it was kind of on a whim. I thought it would help me to be somewhat accountable to others who “follow” me. I had no idea I would be blessed with such support from you guys! It is so cool to converse with folks as far away as Australia and then as close as my home town. My recent Sunshine Blogging Award was very special to me, but then I had to narrow it down to 11 people? Hmmm….that was hard because there are so many others I wanted to include.

Writing challenges are inspirational and has brought an interesting creative side forth that kind of surprised me. I had written some poetry in high school and taken a creative writing class in college where we wrote poetry, but I had put it away like my other writing. Several times I have started writing a story and it has turned into a poem. I have journaled some over the years and written several short stories. But, because I am a bit of a perfectionist with my writing, I don’t post. It is one of the reasons you guys don’t see what I write very often. I like to keep things entertaining and fun, but I am my own worst critic.

Never in a million years did I think I could have published authors, photographers and well established bloggers follow me? Really?

So thank you (again) plus some and those I haven’t mentioned!!

  1. Hey,write what you can when you can. We’ve all been there.

    Did you know that you came up as a search term on my blog stats the other day? Pretty cool (though strange)!


  2. Yes, you express this blogging gratitude so well. I agree, so great to make new ‘on-line’ writing/reading friends, and to become a community. Keep it up! I really enjoy reading your blog, and so appreciate the comments you make on mine.


Oh go know you want to!! :-)
