Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Writing 101 – Short and Sweet

on September 16, 2015

For me writing and receiving comments, along with their ever-spooling threads, are the connective tissue of the Word Press Community. It affirms me when someone lets me know they “get” what lies beneath my words. I’ve learned things about my writing that I couldn’t have otherwise known. When I comment on a post I look and listen for meaning and reflect it back to the blogger. Intuition and empathy guide me.

And there is more. I love comments where another blogger and I find mutual kinship and continue in threads to “know” each other. After a while we comment and reply with few words like old friends. Blogging has opened up a wondrous new world for me.

    commenting on your comments here… as for the poetry responding… my haiku writing cat participated in a call and respond haiku jam with a haiku writing malamute. What we did is get a theme then emailed the calls and responses back and forth until we ‘finished’ then each posted the results on our blogs. and of course linked to each other. It turned out great. http://2catsandacattledog.com/buffys-haiku-thursday-invitation-to-jam-with-kuruk/
