I just passed my three year and 100,000 page view landmarks.


Thank you my friends and fellow word crafters for your friendship and constant support as I have grown in this discipline of writing. We're all busy people. Writers would be busy even if we had no family, social or work obligations, we would simply write more. You've shared with others here about how you do it, and I'd like to ask you to do it again. Remind me how to you cover all the bases? How do you give yourself to a large writing project and still manage to maintain your presence here?

    I am envious of you. I am enslaved to the gratification that comes from hitting the Publish button. That's why I only work on one project at a time. I want to get it out there. Maybe I'll start one or two that I can add to slowly.

    LOOK! HeadlyvonNoggin has a real name. :) This is the first I've seen that. Thanks for your thoughts here, Jeremy. I have not found control or balance, it's just that in my circumstances, I have a great deal of time to devote to writing.

    Venkatachari M, Thank you for sharing your experience here. You are writing in several places on a variety of topics. I'm amazed at the patience you and others have when you spend days on an article. I usually pound it all out in one sitting.

    Variety is the spice... John. You write what you like and chances are you'll get an appreciative 'audience'.

    Thanks, Diana. I'm not sure how my traffic compares to others, but I'm happy there are people reading my work.

    I put it in my rainy day fund. I think I may have enough to purchase a pretty decent umbrella.
