I think it was January when I opened a WordPress account so I would have a place to share writing clips. Bit by bit I’ve added clips of articles, but ignored this blog page. Maybe it’s because I don’t like the word “blog.” It starts with that bl-blend, goes on to rhyme with fog, and disintegrates into “Blah-Blah-Blah.”
I don’t want to do words–write ones–that become a bland listing tuned out by readers. For months I’ve stood frozen over my keyboard, waiting to dive into a non-blog blog; wanting to first invent a new word.
Last Sunday was Easter. My husband and I walked Whites Woods near our home in Litchfield, CT. It was a warm, grey day–the perfect background for trailing spring from the underbrush to the canopy above. Yup! Spring is here. Finally it’s time to put fingers to keyboard and begin. I’ll let you know when I find a new word for “blog.” For now, a new beginning.

It’s all good! I felt the same way. Then I learned that not all my words have to be golden. There’s freedom in that, my friend. Kudos for taking the first step!

Half the problem of being a writer is thinking that all words have to be golden. Thanks for the reminder that words don’t need to meet the mythical perfection criteria.
