In an effort to write more than less, I have joined a writer's challenge at Velvet Verbosity. I came across it after reading a couple of examples in the beautiful wanderings at Seeking Elevation, a blog I'm really enjoying these days. I love to live vicariously through other people's experiences, especially if I can find the familiar in them. The blogger at Seeking Elevation is moving her family to Hong Kong, a place I lived and worked for six long, interesting years. I am looking forward to seeing a current Hong Kong through her eyes ...
Anyway ... back to the challenge ... 100 words, with an specific word that must be used. This week's anchor is the word, Family. Here goes:
The Fear of Rejection
I comment at great length and frequency. I’m not ever sure if this is appropriate but I cannot stop. I fear that one day a blogger will finally send me that email:
“Hey! Stop leaving such long comments. Those kinds of remarks belong on your own blog, which I’ve noticed is sadly neglected. Back off.”
But I cannot write regularly on my own blog despite my best intentions. Writer’s block? Perhaps. But my family know that I write here and may not enjoy what I have to say.
Besides. I truly love the back and forth of a good conversation.
