Well, it’s my turn. The day I have dreaded since Jennifer made the announcement about deactivating the blog. I refused to accept it. I tried to find a solution. I practically begged the powers that be to reconsider. I wanted to stomp my foot and throw a hissy fit like a two-year-old.
However, none of that worked. Then I realized I was being selfish. Admitting it sounds even worse. Who was I to hold back progress? Sometimes leaving on a good note is best. Even though I knew this in my head, my heart grew heavy, and my mind entertained thoughts of what it meant for me without this blog. I will miss it.
Then I remembered that sometimes things need to end so new things can grow. Even God made it evident in nature, in our Spirits, and with our very lives. We see it everyday for 365 days that make up our year. I know this year is especially hard for all of us, as we are now experiencing history being made with the virus that controls our days. I do not know about you, but I feel cabin fever settling in a little bit.
For the past five years, being part of this CREW has meant the world to me. Jennifer took a big chance on a newbie writer and allowed me to learn, create, and gifted me with a chance to use my voice. I’m sure some of my older blog post read like the very amateur that I am. I needed a lot of help. And I was graciously given all the help I needed. I appreciate each crew member past and present. I wouldn’t be where I am today without you. I know there are crew members launching new books, maybe scheduling speaking engagements, and getting contracts offers to write more books. I’m so very excited for all of you!
Thank you to everyone who followed us, left comments, and gave advise along the way! You were the best part of writing for Inspired Prompts! Thank you so much for spending your time with us. I’ve spent my free time lately working on a new novel. I like how its shaping up. I have a writing friend offering to be a mentor of sorts. I’m very excited about that! So maybe someday my writing will be read again, in a published book, or on a blog of my own. Until then……
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you,
Until we meet again.
