Not sure this was stated or if it was implied in previous posts, but place holders will be posted until the new year. Sometime in December the new line up will be explained, however if you have read any of my previous earlier in the year or before, you can guess. The difference will be in the posting.
I hope everyone who is reading this post is doing well. The next update post will be November 1st. The official first day of NaNoWriMo. The Discord and other social media spots will be a blaze with writers of every level, writing or talking about not writing. There will be posts, vlogs and podcasts episodes about participating in this event and not participating. You all my few readers will know where I stand on November 1st.
Until them I am making hard choices. How do you get yourself out of the habit of procrastination? That has been my dilemma for a while, now. My worst fear is the New Year and nothing has changed. I won’t have anything prepared to post. I will be writing an apology essay again. If that happened I might close down this blog for a couple of months. I can’t say forever. Most of my best times in life is when I am writing. I have been looking at elements of short story writing. While listening to author podcast, I heard of the article in the NY Times Who is the Bad Art Friend? It is written by Robert Kolker. I don’t want to explain the whole thing but it is interesting. The article is about narcissism, plagiarism, bad friendships, lawsuits, and the literary writing community. It is a lot. I will say that the article attempted to be as objective as possible. But no matter how you looked at it, you will take a side. This article had many a writing community all a flutter for most of October. I think it came out when I was in Florida. I didn’t know anything until last week. I wrote this comment on a YouTube video about the article and the case. It seems like one person thought they were friends and the other person didn’t feel that way. Mostly because I don’t think real friends act that way with each other, even when they use aspects of their friends’ lives for inspiration. It all comes down to a matter of kindness and none of these adult people knew how to do that.
This week is going to be a busy week and I have a list of thing that have to be done before November 1st. I can no longer avoid them. I thought I had more to write but I am closing here. The Dalai Lama has a quote I like to paraphrase – Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. Please like and subscribe thank you in advance.
