[Weekly Whimsy] Whammy
edit/update: WOW!!!!! What a Whammy for ME! Ron over at FTW announced a some-what comeback....
[Welcome to Weekly Whimsy! Why write when words have withdrawn...]
“Remember when it used to go like this…” Lauryn Hill, That Thing
Today is a day of strange liberation.
It’s certainly got a sense of melancholy and some serious nostalgia, but it’s very freeing too. Why?
I’ve decided not to write any more Weekly Whimsy posts.
I looked at my posting history, and I have 24 of those babies put out there for your viewing pleasure. I loved writing each and every one. I loved coming up with the cool themes, the great alliterations, the ingenious ways to touch on a variety of topics most gamer dudes would never encounter or examine seriously. I loved crafting those compositions, finding the appropriate pictures and touching those of you that read in some way.
I don’t like being tied to it. I don’t like the forced and less-than natural feeling some of the posts had (to me). I don’t like how many Sunday mornings I got up early to write rather than hanging out with TheDude. Some weeks I was ahead of the game and had my stuff done before I went to bed Saturday, but most of the time I was winging it early in the am.
Don’t despair… I’m not giving up the writing overall- it just won’t be scheduled for every Sunday anymore. I’ll post whatever, whenever; truly the essence of whimsy. You can’t put a timeframe on inspiration, and so I won’t. I’ll just write when the mood strikes me and you can enjoy it when it comes.
I love writing, and I plan to continue bringing great content. I just need to do it on my own schedule, so that I can enjoy my husband, my kids, my dog, my store, my community, my gaming and my friends in a way that works for me.
