I guess we’ve all asked ourselves that at some stage, especially when something we are really pleased with gets few views or a response whereas something we consider not so good gets a lot of recognition.
Variety I think is good, and I try to keep that by doing prompts every day, be it words, photos and more recently music. I like to write short stories, something with a twist in the tail or a poem, whatever inspires me from the prompt. Other times the mind just goes into shutdown, and I either have to come back to it, or not do it at all 😦
I write a lot about Maggie, especially lately with her health problems. I worry about her, and sometimes putting out a post about it helps as the response is great from fellow pet owners. I really appreciate that, as it helps me get things in perspective.
I also write about our life, which isn’t exactly spellbinding or mind-boggling, but we have our moments, have some fun, and of course we have our walks along the beach or in the park. I worry about Hubby’s health and whether my cooking is doing him harm or good, though we try to eat sensibly. Sometimes, OK a lot of the time, we have too many treats in a short space of time.
With Christmas not that far away, I am working on what to buy now which we won’t eat and have to replace (like mince pies), and what to get Hubby on our £10 dash. I love that about our Christmases, the sillier the better. My cards are all made, the newsletter practically ready and I’m working on The Poem for 2018.
