Writing is Lonely Work

October 17, 2019 | By | No Comments | Filed in: Life in Retirement, Morning Coffee, Personal.

Today I realized why I didn’t blog more.  Writing is lonely work at times.  It’s a natural introverted activity-writing comes from within.  Even technical writing requires some solitude-for research, for editing, for the careful turn of a phrase. Thanks to blogging, you do hear from readers and even the occasional troll and spam poster.  I • Read More »

Where I have been?

September 6, 2019 | By CarolDuhart2 | No Comments | Filed in: Uncategorized.

I haven’t abandoned my blogs, just got a major attack of writer’s block. I worked so hard on the building that I got too tired and overwhelmed as far as the writing part-even though compared to deciding on templates and extensions and such, writing is supposed to be easy.
