My question to you, Modern Philosophers is: “Why?”
Who needs a Summer Blog-cation? This is a great time to get some serious (or seriously hilarious) writing done.
I had “one of those days” at work, and if I weren’t on a health kick, I would’ve driven straight to the grocery store on the way home for some comfort food. This would’ve been a chicken wings and Snapple, or a giant ice cream sundae kind of night.
However, as part of my Positivity Plus Plan (which came under some extreme duress today!), I calmed myself by thinking of a much healthier and relaxing way to spend my night. I couldn’t wait to get back to The House on the Hill to write out on the porch and then watch the Yankees game.
I have no desire to take a vacation from blogging. Writing is my escape. When the laptop is open and the words are dancing across the screen, I am totally in my element.
Whatever happened today to increase my stress levels has to take a backseat now to clear space for the stories I need to tell.
Writing is the ultimate form of therapy. I can vent, run away, stay and fight, visit exciting new lands, go on amazing adventures, or just rock lazily in a hammock by the ocean.
If we all stop blogging, who is going to spread the Blog Love?
I’m happy to do it on my own, but it’s a lot more fun when others join in the fun.
Whenever today bordered on becoming a little too stressful, I’d get up from my desk, refill my water bottle, and let a few story ideas dance around in my head.
When you’re a writer, you’re never truly alone. There’s always a motley collection of characters hanging out in your head, fighting to get your attention, and trying to convince you to include them in your next tale.
It’s decidedly simpler to stay positive when my ultimate goal for the day is to get home to write. When I’m in writer mode, I can ensure that my story has a happy ending.
So what are your Deep Thoughts on this, Modern Philosophers? Are you going to take a Blog-cation and cut back on your posts for the Summer? Or do you intend to slap on some sunscreen, find a peaceful place, and help me spread the Blog Love?
A wise man once said “There ain’t no cure for the Summertime blues.”
I’d like to correct that (and his grammar). Writing is the cure. Keep writing!
