Today is For W

I thought about this day of W and came up with way too many words to write about (there were three just then), and so I thought I wouldn’t concentrate on just one W word. I would write and see how many I could use while still writing a meaningful post (meaningful is a relative term here).
Writing about the A to Z challenge puts me in a state of wondrous rapture. I waltz around my office in a state of woozy happiness with the thought of all the warmhearted folks I’ve met this month
through the words we all share and love to put to paper, be you “writer” or not. To be a writer entails much time alone, but here is proof of all my workfellows out in the world writing alongside me. I might be alone in my office, but not in my online world.
Three or four hundred years ago I would have been condemned as a witch, communicating soundlessly with wayfarers around the world, wasting time in front of screens while I wantonly spurn “real” companionship. But they, those long ago accusers would have been wrong. Because the magic I/we have isn’t mystical or an illusion. This is our real life. This is what gives meaning to each and every day. We are not woebegone winesops (I hope!), or warlocks, or weary worms writhing in barren soil. We may worry and be
wary of never being read, except, wait! We ARE being read. Right now you are reading my words and that is the true wonder, which keeps us from whining. Instead we willfully write whenever and wherever we can and I for one won’t stop till I drop. Hopefully I will waken in the wee hours of tomorrow morning and find that you have come by for a visit, read this wacky post and left a warm and witty comment. If not, I won’t wallow in my misery. I’ll just write more words and in my heart of hearts, wish you well.

    1. You too Susan, and isn't W such a wonderful letter?!

  3. Very nice!
    That's what is so great about the Internet. I wasn't even online until I signed the contract for my first book, and now I wonder how I survived before that.

  4. WOW Perfect W post.

    1. Thanks Rachael, I put a link to your W post on my X post because I thought it worth letting others know about.

  6. Hi Lisa .. today is no longer W day - but over the hill day ... or in better terms May Day - which is rather a good day ..

    Loved meeting you and I'll sort my subscribe bit out!

    I love the worm ... poor chap - has to be a He - as he's sweating and we don't do that we perspire very gently!!

    Cheers Hilary
