How are you doing? That is a question that usually answered with, "I am fine, thank you." I have not posted for some time because I wanted to see what kind of direction we, as contributors would be going with this blog. There are a lot of wonderful writers that have pledged to contribute on a monthly basis. I have fallen short. We all have our own blogs and writing ventures that we have signed on to do. In a way, it is like watching what this community once was, kind of roll into a death spiral.
We didn't mean for it to happen, but right now, we are in the ICU of the blogosphere. Many of the blogs I have followed have trickled off to the aimless post to see if there is a heartbeat of a response, a comment, a twitter, or the best case scenario of being reposted somewhere.
It takes faith to realize that you created your blog with a vision (I hope so anyway). It didn't have to be pretty, but it had to be real....an element of you that you were presenting to the world. It takes guts to fall on your face and more guts to get up.
So, I am asking, all of us...a real question...What do we want to see TWCB turn into? We all need to commit to this blog to not just trumpet our latest project, but the dialogue going into what our writing means to us. Let's talk about our struggles, be supportive, and yes...wear our hearts on our sleeves.
This is a blog that drew me into finding some of the most fascinating wonderful women writers from around the world. I know you are out there....still.
All the best from Daegu, South Korea.
