I know exactly what he means! 🙂
Sigh, me too!
Full of frustration? Fear? Hope?
All of the above 🙂
At the moment we’re close to hope here 🙂
If it is already full, may be you turn it around and continue on the backside 😉
That is a fantastic idea! Thank you
Write kin your head. No blank page ever in your head.
Thank you! It almost looks like I’m getting there!
I’m old enough to remember that machine! No blank page from you – your blog is lively and full of life!
Thank you Linda! This is about ‘real’ writing … It took me a long time to find the confidence to see this through but I’m getting there! It is a lot easier to put snippets – more or less anonymously – on my blog. I’m at first round of editing and there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Jeanine – I had no idea how much blogging entailed when I began and I did one post (to appease my neighbor who kept trying to get me to start a blog for a while before I actually started it). My neighbor knew about the blog, but no one else for months when I told a couple of people – I felt writing was a personal thing and wasn’t sure I wanted to share it with the world. It would be another 4 1/2 years before I began interacting with other WordPress bloggers. Light at the end of the tunnel – always a good sign!
Thank you! — 4 1/2 years is a pretty long time! I needed about 2 to start wrighting comments. — It’s odd; I’ve been writing this blog for so long now but I never refer to myself as a blogger. For one of my texting jobs I write one as well! I need to reajust my view
Yes, you need to do that Jeanine and you have a blog with a lot of variety … go for it.
I prefer the Opportunity of the blank page
Well, that is a completely different perspective! Thank you
You’re Welcome 😃
