To Save the Day


It has come to my attention that I have been blogging exactly 366 days. That is, here on WordPress. There were two other false starts on that “other” blogging platform, but they don’t count. The Zombies are three times charmed, and here I am, one year later.

So where to from here? I am conflicted, to tell you the truth. Something has changed and I cannot exactly tell you what that is. Writer’s block? mmmm …maybe. It might just be that I’m in the downward swing of a cycle. Soon, I will champ at the bit to blog, blog, blog.

For now though, I shall turn to the daily prompt for my inspiration. Which may or may not be a wise thing since I understand that WordPress is experiencing “technical difficulties” with daily prompt notifications.  Ah well, Mercury is retrograde after all.

Even lazier, for content  I shall re-blog a piece of mine from early last year in which I save a little girl from certain catastrophe. Enjoy.

  1. Anyone who knows that it is “champing at the bit” and not “chomping at the bit” (or is that just a US malapropism?) must keep writing – we need you! I understand about those downward swings, though.

    I actually had a crush on Boris Karloff when I was a (weird) little girl.
