Let’s Write Some letters: The 30 Day Letter Challenge

Greeting my friends! πŸ™‚


*Blows off dust and cobwebs*

It has been a while since my last post, ain’t it? I’m so sorry about the silence. I feel especially guilty because of the over whelming response I got on my last post. The best stats ever! And the comments! Thank you ever so much. I am deeply grateful and humbled.

My fingers and my mind have refused to cooperate; one is constantly churning words, sentence but the other is refusing to tap the keyboard and translate it into something worthy of you my readers. This happens a lot. One of the things that frustrates me the most about my writing is that I’m so erratic. I can’t schedule it, I can’t will it. When it refuses, there’s nothing much I can do about it but just wait it out.

But this year I promised myself that I shall try to write more often. I shall coerce myself to have some semblance of order. And I realize that the best way to repay your faith in me is to continue to write. So I’m going to join my friend here in the 30 Day Letter Challenge. I’m hoping that this will help me to clear whatever debris that’s locking my creative juices.
