Getting the itch again

Am I back? I'm not sure. I just know that in the past few weeks I've really been getting the itch to write in this blog again.
I could not believe how many of you wonderful people occasionally popped by and dropped me a line. It was just amazing. I have these friends I've never even met, and they've become true friends...

Okay, so really, NaNo is only a month and a half away and I hope to be able to participate again. Hey, why not? It can only help, right? Et tu?

Meanwhile, great news for fellow Toronto writer Stephen Kotowych, who won the grand prize in the Writers of the Future contest. Just amazing! A little bit of a belated congrats is in order.

One more thing before I end my first post in ... what ... a year? I'm thinking of changing the focus of ze blog a bit, or rather have it less focused on writing. Oh well, too early to talk about that. Better see if I keep this up first, right?

I guess Hello (again) World is appropriate, no?

Hey Melly. You've been missed. I for one would love to see you scratch that itch. Fingers crossed that you might be back. :-)

Good to see you again!

It's difficult picking up the threads again when you've been away, but it's worth it. Welcome back - you've been missed, even by people you never knew existed.

Good to see you back!!

Melly said...

Hey Guys!!! :)
What a heart warming comeback. Now I just have to make sure it is one.

Trée said...

Just one post at a time Melly. That's all. ;-)

You can do it.

It's funny, any time I get bored writing all it takes is something to make me angry, or stimulate some other emotion and before I know it I'm writing up a huge post about it.

Let something get under your skin. :)

Hi, Melly! I stopped by a few times just in case. You posted! Do you know yet whether or not you will be participating in Nano?

Helen Leggatt said...

Are you really back? Since you've been gone I've written and ebook *blush* for travel writers - it's free by the way!

I'm hoping to try Nano as well. I'm a new visitor and know virtually nothing about you, but as it appears you've been gone for a while, welcome back! Keep on writing, blessing and inspiring your readers.
Cheers!
