I guess I’m impatient

Writing

Every weekend I spend a few hours reading new blogs. Partly to see how and what others are writing, and partly to find new blogs I want to follow. I like to browse through BLOGS, BLOGGING, CONSERVATIVE, and sometimes POLITICS. I also check out the freshly pressed. My time is like everyone else’s…spread out between work, off time, blogging, a little Facebook, and of course tv and family time. So, I discovered something interesting. If the word count is 500 words or less, I will read and read and have an interesting and enjoyable time reading what others have to say. But, if the word count says over 1000 words, or heaven forbid, over 2000 words, my eyes glaze over, my ears start buzzing, and my head gets fuzzy. Stay in one spot long enough to read 2000 words? Gasp! Never! We all want the most return for our time, don’t we? Sorry guys. For those of you who are articulate and verbose…I’m passing you over. I’m all for explicit and concise. In other words…short and sweet is how I like it! See you around the blog sphere.

About estherlou

My husband and I married in 1970. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother to 5. I am a retired wedding cake decorator. I like watching Netflix on the Wii. I am catching up on all of the old tv shows I missed when they were on prime time! Right now though, I am reading and writing blogs, watching tv, making jewelry and rosaries, selling in my Etsy store and playing solitaire. I am home bound and add in my physical therapy exercises to my daily routine. I will blog about my progress or anything that catches my attention at that moment. See you around and thanks for stopping by!

    When writing I am often reminded of the movie “A River Runs Through it” starring a young Brad Pitt and Tom Skerritt. Skerritts character was instructing his son in the skills of writing…and when his son would bring him the paper he had written he would respond with something like…”Well done…now half as long”…So I think of this when I become a bit wordy in my posts.
