Friday Check-In

February 21, 2013


Since beginning my blog it has been a work in progress.First, I sought the advice from various bloggers but I have found myself alone; especially in the beginning when I didn’t get the comments and feedback I would liked.  I felt very vulnerable and alone. However as time went on I joined various ‘challenges’ some more successful than others.  Soon I felt less lonely and enjoyed a sense of a community.  Unfortunately this ‘broadening’  meant that I was beginning to ‘flit’ and moving away from my original plan. I then decided to draw in the reigns a little and ensure there was some  uniformity.  This has proved successful and now I can either perfect or diversify if required.  Joining this group means that I can do that or not; comfortably.  I hope! 

  1. What is your name (real or otherwise)? My adopted name is Nela Bligh

  3. How long have you been writing online? Almost 2 years

  4. Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in? 100 Word Challenge, Alphabethursday, Weekly Photo Challenge and Silent Sunday

  5. Describe one way in which you could improve your writing. Be more creative or experimental

  6. What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given? Be yourself

  8. How do you make time to write? I rise at 5am and with a notepad and camera at all times.

  9. Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt. Remember–it must have a third definition. Read, Travel,  Look

Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn’t miss reading.

I have posted daily for over a year my heart goes into each.  It would be difficult to suggest one.  The ones from my childhood are good, Library snapshots, Wise Women and Stories from Brazil are fine.  A friend said this was one of my best yet …

Saturday and the advent of the trip to Rio!

but who knows?
