I am Like a Mushroom!

I am like a "mushroom!" That's what I am, as the saying goes here in our place: now you see me, now you don't; or, you are like a mushroom who will show up unannounced! The reason? I somehow lost enthusiasm or the fire to write after Literacybase closed shop! I thought all the efforts for making those long blogs were worthless; also the friendships I had made with people there. Anyway, I hope I can be very active again! Do the same thing happen to you also when you lose the interest to write or do something?

How much did LB owe you? I had $8 only when I decided to stop writing because of the talks about LB closing. So it is indeed closed now.

@acelawrites Yes, you had lots of nice and long posts there. Were you able to save them? I wasn't able to.

Yes, but it is only myLot for now. I do not want to be stressed due to some health issues too.

Sometimes we are so busy offline, or we tend to lose some enthusiasm when something bad happens.

@acelawrites agree though.

Sometimes I do feel the same way. But then, I think it is a good help to write for me lately. It eases up the stress feeling when teaching online.

Yes, writing on myLot is a stress-reliever; because we are assured it is always here!

At least we have myLot which is always here, a reliable one that will last for so long! And we can always come back!

Now that you said it, I have missed you here. Sometimes I feel like that but then, I come back.

Yes, it happens to us; but there is still the "fire" within us to always write out of passion

Sometimes a disappointment will keep me away from something for a while, but then I usually get over that and start again.

I agree, sometimes we do not feel the need to write; but then when everything come clear, we come back and write again.
