I am reading the news and see a headline and click it. I get this endless circle turning an turning and things never seem to load, so I hit the red ‘x’ and forget the article. I must do that 20-30 times a night.
I love the internet. I am addicted. I have real friends on here that I like to hear from. Most of these friends are bloggers or blog readers.
Sherry spends some time on FB, and interacts a little; mostly with the family and especially pictures of great grand daughters one in Utah and one in North Carolina.
She admits to sticking pretty close to Grand kids and her sons also. I might go to FB more one of these days, but the writer in me wants to say more than a line. IS THAT GOOD?
EXAMPLE: I don’t care how good a church goer you are there has been at least ONE speaker “WHO DID NOT KNOW WHEN TO STOP!” In your mind he was the ‘Diehard Rabbit’, going on and on…
When I started my AOL Journal I would type and type many times over 2,000 words. I accidently read a comment by a niece to someone else that ‘Uncle Jack was TOO WORDY!’ I started noticing, the blogs I really liked to read were seldom over 800 words (Not including quotes), many I liked were less than 400. I had friends who could say a ‘bunch’ in less than a 100.
So I have tried to stick to the 400 limit. It helps with discipline and trying to be more concise. I really do like my word counter it helps me to know when to start winding down. I had a good pastor once who, after closing his sermon, kept on with ‘good’ comments or statements. That is like backpacking, 65 pounds of ‘weight saving good stuff’ is still 65 pounds.
I remember so well a very old church goer, who described a minister as one of the best, because he left you wanting more…..
As a writer I would like to find that secret. I love a book I cannot put down, one like Betty just described, a page turner.
Thanks for coming this way for my dribbles. Oh shucks, that reminds me of a Journaler who went by, “Dribbles by Chuck”, A great guy who blogged from a nursing home.
The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
