I’m going to slow it down and switch to an every-other-week schedule for posts to the blog. I’m not running out of material, just trying out a different rhythm to see if I like it. I seem to be piling the blog with material faster than it’s getting read. I could find a hundred interpretations for that, ninety nine of them unpleasant, but think that taking everything personally demonstrates great pomposity. Although I could swear that the world revolves around me, I realize that actually it doesn’t.
And if blogging my writing is just talking to myself out loud as opposed to sort of mumbling under my breath, I’m okay with that. I’ve decided to dedicate a little time/energy into investigating writing contests and small presses. That may be just more talking to myself but as I said, that’s ok. It’s all good. Pura vida. If a writer writes in a forest and nobody hears her, can she possibly be writing anything good?
Maybe in the spring when I crawl out of my cave, I’ll feel moved to go back to posting new material every week. If you have any thoughts/wishes, feel free to share. It’s always a pleasant suprise, when I’m talking to myself, to have someone else answer.
