I didn’t post for the IWSG during August and September because it was the school holidays and life was a bit full on.
As a result, I was dropped off the list – that happens if you miss two months as it’s (fairly) assumed that you’ve left the group.
For a while I prevaricated about signing back up; it’s a bit like when your car insurance comes up for renewal and you try to decide whether to automatically renew or to shop around.
Well, I started to write a post about deciding to quit for a while… but then I realised I’d miss those monthly prompts and interactions with writer buddies around the globe. I’d still visit some, but the monthly blog hop was always a reminder and nice way to check in on what’s going on in other people’s lives.
So, I’ve signed back up. Not because I’m insecure (at the moment anyway), but ‘coz I like the support. I guess absence does make the heart grow fonder 😉
I’m interested to see what it’s like being back at the end of the list. I was within the first 100 before and now I’m all the way back at 227, although I can see a few familiar names nearby. Will it be a bit like moving house? I’ve got new ‘neighbours’ now – who’s coming round to borrow a cup of sugar? (does anyone really do that? In my experience they’re more likely to tell me I’ve parked in the the wrong space!)
Anyhow, thanks for stopping by. Feel free to look around, just be careful of… yeah – that was the cat, she likes to pretend to be the carpet >rolls eyes<
And if you’d like to join this merry band of writers, you can sign up to the list here (we could turn out to be neighbours!)
