Today I’m going to rock your world! (Or damn near close.) I have the honor of playing host to fellow blogger and A to Z Challenge Co-Host, Jeffrey Beesler. The dude is awesome, so listen up! And while Jeffrey is here, I am visiting The Man-Cave today. But listen to Jeffrey first!
I’ve been mulling over this posting for quite some time, actually. What would it be like for me to not just visit another blogger’s site, but to actually post an article on it? What would I say? How would I say it? Would anyone be interested in what I had to say, or would they show me the palm of their hand and make a hasty exit, leaving me with a slacken jaw and eyes ready to pop right out of my sockets?
Then there are questions like, should I even attempt the A-Z blogging challenge? Can I possibly visit 300 blogs a day? What would people say if I didn’t get around to them all?
With so many things like these in mind, I could easily lock myself away in my room, never to see the light of day again.
But that would be an epic scale of wrong. It’s already hard enough being a writer, having stories to tell to a world which might not even want to listen. For some reason, writers seem to have the worst possible chance at doing the thing they love the most. A bad review on Amazon here, an unsupportive family member there. Not to mention the fact that the very act of writing itself is solitary. It’s enough to boggle the mind.
So what can a writer do to balance this onslaught?
So, I must ask, do you want more friends? Getting them is as easy as A-B-C.
Jeffrey Beesler lives in Kitsap County of WA. He has had one short story, The Broken Pipes of Drei City, published in Abandoned Towers #4. His first novel, The Flettleglag Force, will be published by Cyberwizard Productions. When not writing or blogging, Jeffrey (who also goes by Jeff) enjoys playing Settlers of Catan online and tormenting digitalized characters called the Sims.
Please show Jeffrey that Alex’s Army Rocks and visit his blog, World of the Scribe!
Oh, and now you can go visit me at The Man-Cave!
