I’ve done a lot of catch up reading here over the last week or so and was feeling a bit inferior / sorry for myself when I scribbled this… I’m over it now… Kind of 😉🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person You’re welcome. A feeling we all have from time to time 😉💚 LikeLiked by 1 person Indeed 🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Naughty! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person bah, the inner critic.. i feel ya.. i decided i wanted to write more like Bukowski last week, but some guy named Charles had already beaten me to it.. 😉 continue to allow what “you” do, to expand and develop.. it’s more than worthy in and of itself. Cheers! LikeLiked by 4 people Isn’t that always the way? You come up with a novel idea only to find someone with more talent got there first? 😉😂 Thank you for your kind words though. Some days I find it tougher than others to believe I deserve a place here, but I’ll get over it one day… Hopefully 😉🖤 LikeLike If everyone wrote the same, then no one would ever be creative. You’re doing an excellent job at being your own inner writer. LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you my friend. That’s so good to hear 🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person I think your writing is beyond impressive.

LikeLiked by 1 person Was it that obvious? 😜 No, I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself as I was catching up with everyone’s work here at the weekend. Sometimes I’m just in awe of the talent out there 👍🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person No, it was not! I was in a wicked state of mind! 😂 I get what you are saying! I have such days too and wonder how such talented people can be so kind to mediocre writing. LikeLiked by 1 person I love that wicked side! 😁 And there is nothing about your writing that could be considered mediocre! 👍🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Lol now it seems I was fishing! 😅 Thank you! I can be quite wicked! 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person 😉👍🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Honestly, no matter how one writes (terribly, beautifully, or anywhere in between) there’s still something we can take from it. I absolutely love your work, and the way you can convey something through just a few words is just perfection.😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you my friend. You’re very kind. I love our wee supportive community here – it means so much 🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person What they all said.

Made my day to be called ‘pithy’ too – I love that word!! 😁👍🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person You are welcome! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person 🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person You have a pretty specific style, so the skill is working within those limits, and you keep churning them out. I’m sure if I tried to do it, I’d not be able to keep going this long! There’s definitely a niche for short stuff. So many times I just need short but thought-provoking/evocative things, because it’s too hard to read longer things at the time. And it’s like coming home coming to your blog— because you know what you’re gunna get! And it’s gunna be high value per word lol. And for you this is just how your thoughts naturally come out. You can’t do better than that 😄. Also another aspect to it is— your blog is a place for discussion! There’s a lot more to it than just the posts 😄. People come for you, for the banter, the wisdom, the relatability :). I’ve had exactly the same thoughts as you a lot of times lol. I think it’s natural for self-critical people, and that’s a good thing for writers to be :D. LikeLiked by 2 people Another thing is I sometimes doubt the evidence of the numbers of followers. But I do keep realising that it genuinely is hard to gain a lot of followers, if you’re getting them it’s not for nothing! And I don’t mean that’s the goal, but it’s a reassuring thing! LikeLiked by 1 person I wouldn’t worry too much about the numbers… A healthy dose of my followers are spambots I’m sure. It just makes the smaller amount of real people who enjoy, appreciate and engage even more meaningful 🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Oh yeah I don’t :). I just meant having a large number is a good reassurance. And for me 100 was a lot, lol LikeLiked by 1 person 100 is a lot for anyone!! 👍👍🖤🖤 LikeLike For once, maybe, I’m stuck for words on how to respond to this. I can’t describe how it feels to to have even one person appreciate what I write. This blog has been, and continues to be, so therapeutic in so many ways and you have played a big part of that Robin. So thank you so much once again. 🖤🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Stuck for words, incredible! I feel proud 😄. I’m so glad your blog has been so therapeutic! I can only say the same about mine and your role in it too! 😄. I’m so glad if I’ve helped in some way through the hilarious banter 😁. Time well spent! Thank you to you too! And I so know what you mean about having people appreciate what you write :), that never gets old. LikeLiked by 1 person Haha you should be proud! It takes a lot to shut me up! 😂🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person 😁😁😁 LikeLiked by 1 person Aye ah should be prood of mesel!!
