Blogging: Passion

It’s almost impossible to write with passion unless we have something in life we are truly passionate about; being dedicated to something you love doing.  It could be mountain climbing or embroidery.  If you’re passionate about it, you can covey those emotional moments of triumph and defeat, as a translation of the written word.  We can always draw from experience as well…

When I want to write about something I’m passionate about, I need to place myself within a situation, so I prefer to blog these kind of stories late  into the night, where silence and solace are my allies!  I’m one of those very fussy writers who must have complete silence, someone to bring me a snack, or I’d starve to death…  I hear we tend to think more clearly on an empty stomach; must be some extra alertness survival method that kicks in.  Anyway, I find it works for me!

Ever have an argument, and after, write down all you can remember that was said?  That’s just journalism in action!  Journalists do sugar coat the facts to make events sound more exciting, more dramatic!  So if you find you need to beef up the excitement,  shore up the details, and inject more mystery, more questions!  Some things must be left to the imagination of the reader.  So it’s good to impose a sense of question-ability at times.  We don’t want anyone guessing the ending now do we?

Character descriptions must flow with some sense of continuity, to get the reader involved!  They are most important to provide a hero and a villan, a climax and an anticlimax.  If it isn’t working you up, you won’t work up your audience!  They are your objective; the ones you must hold captive to the story line!  What plot twists and moral questions do you wish to impose? 

When writing about a boxing match for example, you’re not writing about technique to work someone up.  It must be about pain; the fight to get back up when you have no strength left to do so!  It’s the crocked business, confrontations, a real behind the scenes look, the boxing audience doesn’t see!  That’s what we wanna read!  What life shattering event have you come through?  How did it change you?  What was the final result?  These are the questions you need to be asking!  Become whom you are writing about.  Embody their charactor as a living being on the written page…

Let’s Talk Trash

I had to trash a few prior posts that I considered didn’t do too well, just so I can talk trash to you now!  I admit I’m a bit of an oddball when it comes to my being like most people.  And that I’m also not crazy with fondness for you either.  Yet, over these last 3 years, I believe my writing skills have improved immensely!  We have established an open line of communication!  I’ve made many friends!  This is all reflected in the over 600 followers I’ve managed to accumulate: many of which, just over this last 6 months.  That was hard work for me!  It took trust, dedication, and potato chips!

I know that about half of my ‘hard earned’ followers are from Facebook: not the most reliable group on earth.  In fact, I’ve never once received a comment that said: ‘Hi!  I’m from Facebook!’  So I’m not positive the counter is retrieving reliable data from Facebook, or merely stating how many members i have over there, and adding it to the 300 Spartans I have here.

What I am sure of, is that since I told you I was moving and gave you my new blog address, and 10 articles later, I still only have 34 ‘real’ followers over there!  Do you think it fair, to take a genuine depressoid such as myself (a lineage I am proud of, and spans back hundreds of years in my family), and just toss me aside after all the ‘work’ I’ve done to establish a reliable rapor with you?  I thought we were friends!  We have made great strides since I first called you ‘creepy’…

Look!  I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt (because I have no choice at this point), and simply assume you’ve simply forgotten about me, due to my drab and boring personality.  So once again, here is the address of my new blog, and I’d really like to hear from you, or I will slash my wrists with a dangerous toothpick, and it will all be your fault!  (Guilt trip #351).  Hoping to hear from you soon…  Your friend always:  Dr. Kevorkian

I Don’t Wanna Drag This Out But…

I think this is a pretty cule picture!  In fact, I think this, the best part of the series…  I always save the best for last! We will romp and play through a tiny world, one of mystery, craftsmanship, and three containers that are over 150 years old!

I can’t tell you the heartache I endured picking tiny, white flecks off this thing!  The thrashing of limbs, and gnawing of teeth!  OK…  Perhaps not THAT bad… You wanted craftmanship?  Don’t forget to examine it full size in the slide show.  There’s more where that came from!

Hears the more craftmanship…  I remember seeing the tops of these lighters in the late 1950’s…  That takes me back to the constant flow of gasoline fumes!

These are the three that are over 150 years old.  I dunno.  I would think they’d have to have been mummified in Saran Wrap to come out looking this good!  See?  Someone’s always trying to pull a fast one on me.  And I’m always just one step behind them :O(

Here is one of the tiny, cups from England.  It’s from the: ‘Royal Dalton’ collection.  Guys would just laugh at how tiny they are!  So ladies, you might like this one to remind you to drink more coffee.  LOL!  Notice how I have conveniently left some space on our left for icons…

And here we have the mystery…  There’s also a close-up that shows blue flame at the bottom of the candle light…  Enjoy the sideshow…
