One Tweet, One Word

Be sure to visit Two Writing Teachers for more slices of life.

My words have been absent for six months. Is there a good reason? Not really. I just didn’t write. I didn’t look for those moments when life surprises you, entertains you, touches you.

My last slice was in June. Then life became a snowball, picking up speed and size rolling down a hill so fast I could hardly catch my breath. Writing/blogging was pushed aside. Then when I did catch my breath, it was easier not to write.

I mentally played with the idea of not ever writing again.  I thought about writing a final post and stepping away forever. But, something stopped me from doing that, yet.

Daily, I get an email from Twitter labeled Your Highlights. I always look at the highlights they send me, because I rarely go to their site and peruse through the multitude of tweets. So, I appreciate them sending me highlights. Yesterday, this was a tweet:

Just one word from a friend I’ve never met in person. Tomorrow. My response was – maybe. My mind played with the idea of creating a slice. What would it be? I started drafting in my head. Yes, I want to write about that. No, I don’t want to write about that. What would I write? This post is not what I mentally drafted. But, it will have to do for today.

I have another post playing in my mind, so I know I will be back. It felt good to but some words together again. Today, one word in a tweet sent me back to my computer. Thank you Terje!
