Out of Practice

I've taken such a hiatus from writing that I almost don't know where to start. So why not with blogging? I started in 2009 and blogged with high regularity for a couple years, then it began to dwindle. But I think it was good for my voice. So I think I ought to make a go of it again, even if it is just for me.

DISCLAIMER: I probably ought to throw out there that this effort is more for my writing than my following, if you will, so while I will try to do some reciprocating, my time for that is super limited. I will try to clean up my side bar that tells me who has blogged recently so I can see headlines and get there when there is big news. But I expect I might be disappointing if people count on the regular reciprocity that is part of this blogging community contract.

I've toyed with some ideas as to how to get writing again. One is flash fiction... just exercises, like scales for a musician. So if anyone knows of any online resources with prompts and such, I would love recommendations. Maybe I will alternate that with blogging so I am writing something every day.

Not being much for flash fiction, I have no suggestions.

I started blogging in 2005 and while I've drifted a few times, I always come back to it.

I vote for short fiction. I love it bunches. This last year I've been blog negligent. I need to change that just because I have awesome writer friends in this network and really appreciate them.

Write..Edit..Publish, every other month, for prompt writing.

I used to know a lot of sites - and I wrote for them, but most seems to have been discontinued. Lol, this made me check out the resources on my own blog and I had to delete a lot of dead links. Thanks, I think :)

Its hard to get back into writing after a long hiatus. I've been struggling with it a couple years myself. I wish you luck.

I'm no one to talk about blog writing since I've pretty much quit mine, but you're so entertaining and lively I'd love to just hear your writer's voice again.
