It's funny how things morph over time.
I just read MY FIRST FRIDAY FRICASSEE and discovered that my original intent for the weekly installment was a focus on readers. To wit:
"Friday Fricassee" is all about my readers. Of course, this is a brand new blog, so pickin's may be a bit slim for a while. Basically, I'm opening up the comments box for a fricassee of ideas, input, amazing insight, etc., from those of you who feel so inclined to share.
Somehow along the way, Friday Fricassee has become more of a melting pot--stuff about me, stuff about you, stuff about writing, stuff about life. Which, I think, is more appropriate for a "fricassee". (You know, pieces of meat and vegetables all mixed up together and sautéd and smothered in white sauce.)
It's via Friday Fricassee that I've felt most connected to you. That I've had an opportunity to let some "real me" show.
Of course, I'm in a dry place now--a place of "I really don't have anything to say. I'm spent." So this is probably a good time to pass the baton to you.
Which is where it apparently started, yes?
(On another note--and one that amazes me: Some of you who were here 6 years ago ARE STILL HERE. Talk about connection!)
So let's talk about that! Let's talk about YOU. (Because, when I'm dry, I'm especially need your words and thoughts and bits of life. The same way you need the words of others when you're feeling a bit pruney.)
When did you discover MSFV? Why did you stay? And, most importantly, HOW HAS YOUR WRITERLY JOURNEY PROGRESSED since then? Have your goals changed? Do you feel stronger, or not so much?
Looking forward to all that you have to share!
