|The goofy smile...when you finally learn how to use graphic tools to make your own graphics!|
The curtains are finally starting to fall across the ball room. October is almost over…Blogtober as well…
With this piece I slide across that floor, in an attempt to prove to the readers that we can manage a proper, yet graceful tango with words. Words are beautiful…words are healing, words are life…words? 26 letters of the alphabet…capable of being arranged in countless different ways, to create something beautiful with every attempt!
Our tango is blissful; we twirl, we smile, we hold, we stare…into each other’s eyes. My final piece and I! We are a match made in heaven! We tango for hours...
The result? A standing ovation from the audience… we hold hands, and take our final bow. The curtains are let loose over the ball room...
Goodbye Blogtober, hello November!
My heart is bursting with gratitude as I pen these words. I appreciate every single awesomeness, that has been put into my blog this month. I had been on a personal challenge...the blogtober challenge: blog every day in October. Well, at the end of the month I have blogged 15 times...fifteen? Never in my life time have I blogged so much in a month...let alone in a year!
And you have made the experience worth it...with every kind word, with every +1, with every share, and every comment, with every encouraging word, and every advice...
Advice? I have had lots of that...I have met some beautiful souls...some gifted humans...amazing bloggers...a friendly community. I'm back to believing, that beautiful people are still out there!
Special shout out to this genius, if you ever get to read this...
*she pulls out her note book and inscribes his name in the list of inspirational people...that list of wahenga (means the wise ones in my language)*
Find time to follow his whacko group of blogs..believe me when I tell you, it's worth your while!
I'd say to every person that will read these words...there was wisdom in the words, "practice makes perfect." Keep trying, keep learning, keep doing, that thing that puts a goofy smile on your face...irregardless of imperfection.
A good writer writes something every day...not really publishes...just writes...even if it's a sentence at a go...it gets easier with practice. It's a principle that applies in all areas of life...tested and proved!
I've been in that awkward place between finishing law school, and waiting for admission to the Bar. And as I've been waiting? I've thought of my first case, and a life of litigation...and for a second, a long second, a very long second...that life scared me. But this month I've learned...it gets easy with practice...start, try, give it a shot...whatever you endeavour to do? Let it evolve from a thought, to an action! It gets easy with practice!
For the blogger? We are in an age where there's a frenzy of selfies...pose, tap, snap, post...then, wait for a response...if none is forthcoming? Repeat that process! Pose, tap, snap, post...
Do not treat your blog as a selfie, dear blogger! A blog post is meant to be timeless; to make sense even years to come. Give it time, give it a thought...put in effort, invest hard- work!
On responses? You may not always get as many as you wish to, but believe in yourself, stick to your cause...let passion and a love for words drive you! keep writing. When you're obsessed with responses? When you check your stats every five minutes after a post...believe me, being frustrated becomes inevitable! So keep calm, and give it your best shot...and while at it? employ due diligence.
So...on other news...I waited too long to steal this from the genius I mentioned above, hehaa! So here goes: where to find my collection in Blogtober. I hope my words made sense to you this month...I hope they were helpful. Your time, and support was, and still is highly appreciated.
Nuff said...case rested! Mad love for all of you faithful ninjas!
