I’m trying to write the blog for this month…my page of information, whining, triumphant tooting, or whatever topic I’m supposed to be supporting this month. Last month I thought I missed the blog date. Ha! I didn’t!!
But it doesn’t seem to matter as only two other people have managed a blog since. I know everyone is busy with life, writing as we can get to it, and figuring out the new blog. The first time with this new site I managed to blog in less than an hour. This month has already doubled that and I’m not assured of success at this moment.
Why is this month - the trash can? Because when things don’t work out the fastest way to get them out of our lives, off our shoulders, and out of our heads is the trash can. It is the evaluation of whether things should be tossed that takes the darned time! But, what would our lives be like if we never discarded the innate, flawed, or downright awful?
Life and writing are the same in that regard. Life and our writing is improved by what we trash - leaving only the useful (plot), beautiful (description), and the people (characters) essential for our happy outcomes.I shall leave you now to ponder your trash.
