In which the spambots get on my nerves, and I think about writing
I can't believe my blog is so popular with spambots! Ha ha.
I had a big epiphany last night that I really, really, REALLY need to create stuff right now. Also, that I have trouble making decisions. I'm sure this is no shock to anyone who actually knows me. But it was big for me. So I have to decide what to create now! Oh no!
I've been working on a book, off and on, for several months now, or at least I can call it a book idea. And that is really fun...but part of my struggle with NOT having a career is the social isolation, and guess what? Writers=isolated. Hm.
So I've been mulling over whether to start a writer's group. I know someone who already is in one, but they focus rather heavily on performance, and that is NOT what I'm interested in. So now I'm thinking of what I want to get out of it, and what might work. Should it just be a group of people who all get together at a set time and write in silence, then have a chat? Should we come to the group with a prompt we can work on every time? Should it be bigger or smaller? How can I keep it from just becoming a chatfest, or do I really care if it's just a chatfest, because maybe then I'll go home and write alone?
I don't know. Just what I'm thinking on these days. What you give attention to is what you get more of, so now I'm giving my attention to this writing thing. Time will tell.
