The Inspiration of the Blog
I really must thank all of the dozens of people that I have come in contact with in the last eight months. I have conversed and traded ideas with poets, writers of fiction, picture takers, and artists. In other words, I have talked to nearly all categories of creative people that exist. I have talked to poets and writers in Canada, the US, Briton, South America, New Zealand and other places.
I started all of this shamelessly hawking a self-published book, something I continue to do (see the end of the blog). What I have found instead is a steady stream of ideas and creative stimulation. I was in a creative funk before I started blogging. It seems that I had just run out of ideas. Thanks to all of you, that is now over. Since last December I have completed first drafts on some of the best work (my assessment) that I have ever done. I have at least a half a dozen on the back burner, some of which you have read and some you have not, that are awaiting a good edit. I have even embarked on a serial novel for your enjoyment (Jannick).
I can give credit for this creative rebirth to you, my constant blogging companions. So, for sharing your lives, pictures, poems, drawings, and stories with me, I must thank you. It has been exhilarating and I can’t wait to continue.
