I woke up feeling lazy today! Thank goodness Andy Warhol wasn’t lazy. He left a wealth of whimsical, extravagant, bold art for the world to judge. His work has always both delighted and inspired me, but today I particularly appreciated his words of wisdom because I needed a kick in the lululemon workout (lounge) pants! As you know from my About Me page and previous posts, from the pink shed. com is my first foray into social media. WordPress provides me with the tools I need to monitor my readership and it can be tempting to linger on the STATS Page focusing on my numbers, rather than writing, reading or researching. It is also so much easier to ask my technology consultant to make a change or improvement rather than to learn to do it myself.
I write because it’s fun to play with words and it’s also a great challenge. As Nathaniel Hawthorne said, “Easy reading is damn hard writing.” My heroines have always been writers: Joan Didion, Louisa May Alcott, Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf and Madeleine L’Engle. I am not a woman with that depth of talent, but I have stories to tell, friends to introduce, opinions that insist upon being heard and, just now, I have the time! I will continue writing and working to boost my readership and improve my technical expertise!
Thank you for being one of my first readers! Please continue sending me your comments and ideas.
