HA! I am thanking my lucky stars that someone posted the above quote. I was having a hell of a time thinking of a post. I don’t know if it is the cold or the crickets, but I just can’t seem to think. And I need to post, otherwise I am subject to just giving up. If I do not post on a continuous basis, I will eventually convince myself that this blogging thing is not working, because look how long it’s been and where is my traffic? No traffic must mean I am failing! It’s probably just the crickets, though. They have crawled into my landlady’s wall and are driving me crazy! I have a catastrophic brain and the crickets and the cold weather are not helping. Cold weather stops my flow, it seems. I mean, it’s not snowing or anything harsh like that, I am just a warm weather person who needs to turn on her heater, for Heaven’s sake.
I have had amazing experiences these past few weeks, my first writer’s convention and appearing on a radio program, but I seemed, today, to have tried to take myself into a place that does not exist at present, a place of failure. Then, while surfing the web, I saw the above quote and I thought HA! That’s it. I remembered that I started this blog to have a presence in the writing community, not to attract heavy traffic. Well, I have a presence, and by living and pursuing a goal today, I may encounter failure but it will certainly not occur by default.
I feel warmer now, thanks to my little heater and some socks, and maybe those crickets will take pity on me and go to sleep or hop away. Toodles.
