Will You Take Me Back?

LJ, you really want me back after all I've done to you? I've tweeted. I've joined Facebook. I've even seen posts on G+, but I swear they are few and far between. Can you find it in you to take back a repentent writer?

Contrary to every intention I had, 2014 was not the year I took to blogging again. I wrote stories instead, and revised The Third Transmutation into perfection (*).

But I miss the company here, and I miss writing posts about the bumps I encounter on my way as a writer - and the victories. So I guess I'll be around a little bit more, at least when the fancy strikes me. I have the ideas. All I need to do is sit down and share.

I really can't tell you why I haven't done so before.

(*) It just seems right that such a statement should have an asterisk. Or some kind of modifier. Or perhaps a cure against megalomania. But it's done, and I'm shopping it around to agents, which is new to me.

Well, I *HAVE* to have a birthday buddy, right? So yes, please come back. I have this dream, that LJ will return to its former glory. I can't make heads or tails of twitter, don't facebook, G+ is okay, but nothing else has that same feel as a LJ friends list. We need to make a LJ return revolution or something!

The LJ revolution... I think that's going to be hard to pull off, but perhaps if we put together a march to petition the White House or something?

I think LJ is great too because it's entirely comments-based. There's always going to be conversation here, even if the responses (like this one, *cough*) can be a few days coming.

Just remember to comment sometimes. Your fellow bloggers sometimes feel like they're yelling into a vacuum. I.blame Facebook , which has a Like button. LJ doesn't, so the barrier energy to interaction is higher.

Why yes, I am a Physcist? Why do you ask? (grin)

At least there's no Van Allen belt around planet LJ, so I guess a comment from time to time won't be bad for my health :-)
