Some years ago, I had a blog on Open Salon. Its format enabled me to build a large audience quickly, and I felt myself thriving as a writer. Eventually, OS ceased operations, and for a long time I had trouble finding the motivation to write and to generate any kind of momentum for myself.
Last month, a teacher in my building encouraged me to join this challenge. This was the experience I needed. I am grateful to Suzanne for this invitation and to Deb, whom she also approached.
Also, several other participants in this challenge wrote kind comments on my posts. This encouragement has made a meaningful difference for me, and I feel enriched by having discovered their blogs.
My deep gratitude to Two Writing Teachers. Including today’s entries, I believe I have posted over 25 times this month. I have never managed this kind of output before.
I hope to participate again next year, but in the meantime, I will continue to post regularly, and I will most certainly continue to read the blogs of the fine writers I have discovered here.
