Don't be afraid to try something new and different to your usual.
I wouldn't have made it this far if I hadn't tried new things.
I had spent 4 years sharing my new found creativity within the confines of an online community...
Then the community was deleted from the internet...unannounced.
I lost something very precious to me because I'd not learned to save and make copies....my earliest cat themed creative writings.
I could have thrown in the towel, but did not; I became a blogger with a bike blog and a personal blog.
( Missed the first post? The World Is Yours...Never Give Up )
I took the challenge to try my hand at this new form of journaling and because I did I found myself trying all sorts of new things over the years, from new poetry forms to genealogy research, photography to short videos, from essays and reviews to humor and commentary, from journalism to travelogues, from open mics and guest speaker to guest blogger, from 100 word stories to 2, month long, series on "Gratitude" to a 31 chapter short story made up of 30 100 word stories and a single 200 word story, and more.
In 2016 it is my hope to be able to try new things in an effort to take new steps in my creative journey.
I encourage you to get out there and "try" yourself...you won't regret it.
*Try" is not a four letter word. :-D
