Nine Times


Nine times I got really close to pushing Publish

Eight different updates on my life I’ve failed to finally finish, which had,

Seven sexy snippets of stories I wanted to share

Six posts begin with some kind of “Sorry. I should-have stopped by to say, ‘hi'”.

Five Fridays I almost showed you my boobs.

Four Mondays gave me un-funny run-to-the-computer-with-an-idea-only-to-forget-it moments

Three times I started writing and one of my kids started reading over my shoulder

Two of the almost-published posts I felt contained too much serious shit, and worried that you would worry about me.

One finished post

If I could just move my hand to the mouse,

letting go of the need to edit,

connecting with you again,

just publish…

  1. As with #6, just stop for a quick Hi… doesn’t’ have to be long or detailed, doesn’t have to be much more, always nice to know you are around…

    Of course, #5… well… nevermind…. 🙂

  2. Hey, G. Hope you’re doing well.

    Been thinking of you and that silence thing. 😉

  3. I feel you. I have so many stories and pictures and snipits that are sitting in my draft folder that I cannot seem to publish. Every once in a while one will escape and get published.

    I will clean out my draft folder one day when I feel I can stop editing and accept what I wrote.

    I look forward to reading more from you.

  6. So it was you that jinxed our boys? lol That’s okay, you’re still a Betty and great to see you in my reader. xo

  7. Okay, so just stop the super-picky part. As if we’re not going to like anything you post.
