Or how a hillbilly gets her grove back.
The A to Z blogging challenge gave me an opportunity to write. A lot. I’ve realized I’m not a daily blogger but 3 to 4 times per week is my sweet spot. And while I was writing, I kind of crafted the key elements that I want to pursue with this blog: writing tips, how-tos, social media and writing, my poetry, info on poetry and guest blog posts. But I have so much more to say than that.
And so I’m going to start another blog. I’ll give you more info as I shape and play with it. I’m really excited about it! I just wanted to give you a heads up.
Also, I wanted to go hang out with some friends. I am visiting my homeland of West Virginia, so I’m trying to see as many people as possible. But not everyone has wifi. Or even internets. So, I had to do stuff like *gulp* interact with real people.
No, actually that was awesome. It’s really good to just connect with someone other than a Gravatar or a profile pic. It did make it more difficult to post. I tried posting things from my tiny Android screen. In fact, a couple of the last posts A to Z posts were from the new phone. I’m still trying to get used to that WordPress app. It’s a bit odd, but it worked in a pinch.
Oddly enough, the act of not blogging made me lean more toward fiction. I started writing on two short story ideas, you know just to get the ideas down. The bloggingg…eh…not so much.
What do you do when you’re heart wants to write about one thing, but the brain is trying to get into to something else? Should I start adding short stories to this blog as well? Let me know what you think in the comments.
OH! I made a button. It’s on the right over there. Do you like it? I tried to make it smaller, but I’m not sure if it’s small enough. Let me know gang, and feel free to steal it. That’ll make me feel pretty and special. 😀
