Fragments and sparks


Yesterday was a fragmented sort of day, with more than the usual unexpected events and interruptions. By mid morning, my mind had gotten into an alert-for-any-curveball state that was not conducive to anything that required longer than a few minutes worth of attention.

One result is that I skipped over or merely skimmed my usual blogs. Almost felt like I didn't have coffee in the morning. I didn't find out till later in the day, when my mind mellowed somewhat, that Davin had written a post at the Literary Lab, that mentioned an earlier post of mine on unusual character traits.

And can I just say how thrilled I am?

When I started this blog, I had only the vaguest notions about this thing called "web presence" and now, a little after a year later, I find that the best thing about having a blog (besides having a great excuse for procrastinating) is that I "meet" people with whom I can exchange ideas. I don't know about you, but the connection that happens when like-minded people throw around ideas and find sparks and common ground, is one of the best things in life. So thank you, the wonderful writers at the Literary Lab.

The blogging community is amazing isn't it?

It was a great post for Davin to branch off of! I love the blogging community, too. It's a great place to connect when we're feeling lonely as writers. It can be a lonely craft!

Isn't that the truth? the blog is the best form of procrastination. :)

I was just thinking this morning how I love the conversations that develop in the blogging community. It is so enriching reading what other writers are learning, creating and experiencing.

It's the best way for introverts and people who don't like to talk on the phone to communicate.

So glad to have met you here!
