March, as you know, is blogoversary month here at Write Now, so I've been in a reflective mood. It's been three great years, and I can't thank you all enough for sharing in the journey. You've added rich, abundant blessings to my life; you are by far, the best blog followers on the planet!
As a small token of my thanks, I'm having a giveaway (details below). I'd love to send you all some chocolate, but that is not feasible until my ship comes in. In the meantime, we'll have a random drawing to choose the winner, but know that I treasure each and every one of you.
I've also been reflecting on my writing. The catalyst? Reviewing a few old articles, and a booklet that I self published some years ago. Yes, there's been a fair amount of cringing - I'm fairly sure I uttered things like, "I can't believe I was that wordy," or "Did I really say THAT? Eeesh!"
Once I quelled my shudders, I realized that it simply means my writing has grown, and this is a good thing. It reminds me of something Lewis Carroll said:
If you limit your actions in life to things that nobody can
possibly find fault with, you will not do much.
I often aim only for the destination, when really, the journey, with its ups and downs (and lousy writing episodes), is what makes the destination what it is. Writing and life are that much sweeter through growth and lessons learned, don't you think?
