It is evident I have two blogs. One is ‘ Long story, short’. One is ‘for good measure’. A music page, and a running novelette about my days and what I see.
I have already missed yesterday’s assignment.
I am to pick three concrete goals for my blog(s).
I will keep this brief.
1. Encouragement. Blogging gives me a chance to stay focused and submit something every day. Not to a deadline or editor, and not as messy as my scribble books. I look at the world, often with a camera now, and go to listen to music. Then, I write about it. It gives purpose.
2. Share ideas. More personal than a social network post. When I write on this site, I read others’ work. Not a novel yet, but I encourage growth in my stuff and with others. I also do not want to be part of some of that drama.
3. Networking also is part of this. I pick up paying freelance work. Writing for newspapers makes me a small part of that community. I can be part of a positive change, right here. If I do a good review or even just post a good photo that I took perhaps it will draw interest. I highly recommend music as a healer and writing about it has that perk for me, also. I have dreams. I want to ‘hang a show’. I hope to keep traveling and see the west. Maybe this summer I can get to a couple of festivals. I blend in family time and nature walks and ideas about books I may read in the pages. It is proof.
I can see that I am living.
