Lately, I feel like snails move faster and do more than I do.
At least they’re going places.
They might seem slow.
But, at least they’re moving.

On blogging, I get plenty of recommendations on how to get more traffic to my blog, followers, likes, and comments.
Visit other blogs, follow them, like and comment on posts.
Write to the audience’s interests.
I mean, why not ask me to grow horns on horses and make unicorns,
or bring people to life from the dead (I don’t mean zombies, because they’re creepy),
or paint rainbows across the sky?
My creative muse turns a deaf ear to expectations. In fact, when they present themselves, she runs and hides.
Or, she freezes like a statue, unwilling to move, communicate, or be merry.
If I listen too long to expectations or spend too much time drooling over all the amazing things people are doing in their blogs, I’d want to quit.
Because I don’t have anything worthwhile to say or contribute.
If I believe that crap,
I’d lose my driving passion for writing —
bringing people together
So, I’m just going to keep doing my thing…
