And something in the air
Just in case you've never read this anecdote, I'm leaving this here:
You've been one of my favorite writers since I discovered deargddog a few years ago. I'm subscribed to exactly two blogs- both yours. Let me not get in between you and your feelings, especially in a world so plagued by misogyny and age-ism, but for what it's worth, from the perspective of this very picky consumer of the written word, you've got It. I'm grateful and excited every time I see you've posted something, and I thank you for doing it.
As an eyewitness to your journey, I love this phase of it so much more!
You’re finding yourself once again and in spite of all the managing of things, you have found a place and a space for your weirdly wonderful and talented voice to be heard/read!
You were born to write and tell stories, keep doing so!
Namecheap……..you bought that domain name on Namecheap!!!!! Which means I actually looked!
But I thought you WERE a writer, not learning or struggling or trying. Where did I think wrong? You have humour, you have your own style, you can spell, and you punctuate correctly. And you have an extensive vocabulary. I have good taste in writing, and you are a good writer. Just accept it and celebrate with some special, superlative tea.
Wow! Best one yet Margie! You are most definitely a writer, like it or not. And I adore your humour 😁😂🤣
One can be at sea without having to be so...Pacific.. holy hell woman that's amazing!
I love your stories! They are a bright spot in my week. And I would sign up to help a Boomer.
You brighten my week with laughter and learning every time!
I, like so so many others, look forward to your writings and smile when I see a new one sitting in my email.....this is proof! So for what it's worth, I think you have to write - I imagine the pressure of really "trying" or "having" to do it is different, and a pressure you're putting on yourself, too. Remember, the beagle is sleeping and you can do it the way you want.....
When I read your blog, you are right there in front of me. These ponderings, and many more, have always been woven into conversations with you. I don't think you will ever run out of things to write.
As for Tea.. can I just say will someone PLEASE teach Starbucks how to brew tea!
Marjie, you have found another "Marjie" in writing and you are fabulous at it......keep it going!!!!!!
The one thing that can’t be taught, that you either have or you don’t, is voice. And you’ve got that!
