I try to write a short essay or two every day. I have been doing this for at least a decade. Sometimes I work on my poetry. This takes WAY longer. For anyone who attempts this art form, who is not blessed with The Gift, my heart goes out. You wake up in the middle of the night with ONE word that insists on inserting itself into your poem, and that changes the entire energy of the verse. Oh well. Maybe that's why you will notice I am wrtiing essays late at night, because once the Muse wakes you up in the middle of a succulent dream, insisting that you must add that one word, she departs leaving you wide awake and essaying.
All this got me wondering...Maybe I should try to write day essays. No better time than the present. Today it's pouring here in Asheville. Great day to take some time off. So, follwoing my own sage advice, I wrote today's essay for Active Rain...e a r l y.
I wrote a great essay and posted it. Then I got this!
The big red-lettered announcement that it wouldn't be counted.
Only 10 essays a week will be counted. (new rules)
OK! I don't care, I will post my great essay on how come real estate professionals need to know about GREEN STUFF. I don't care about the Points! I care about getting the word out to my colleagues. BUT wait a minute. If I value what I have to say, and I think YOU who read what I have to say might value it, shouldn't I refrain from posting this amazing peice until Monday? when it can get the credit it deserves? Isn't this a test of how I value myself?
What if I applied this lesson to my real state practice? Shouldn't I NOT work with people who do NOT value me and what I have to say? A Relevant Topic this week here on the Featured Side. http://activerain.com/blogsview/17188/-Murphy-s-Law What kind of Muse hangs around during the day, anyway?
Here's what I want to know...Can I still get a STAR? if anyone happens to read this, can you still give me a star?
I think I shall return to my nighttime ramblings. I'll save the non-pointed days for rants...and HUMOR.
See ya' around "stary-stary" midnight.
