This post is in fact a fastidious one it helps new internet viewers, who are wishing in favor of blogging. – from TBP’s Spam Inbox
595 days, 314 prompts, 1286 Comments and Pingbacks. It’s been fun. But, I am sorry to say, the time has come to bid everyone a fond farewell.
I started The Blog Propellant (TBP) when I had oodles of time on my hands. I had more fun coming up with prompts than I had writing my own pieces. Then this year, after six long post-recession years of part-time jobs and contract work, I finally had a full-time job again, but with it came the loss of oodles of time. I went from posting three to four times a week to just one or two times a week.
That’s just about when regular TBP responders tnkerr and R.Sativus stepped in with their contributions. Their prompts made TBP a funhouse of story ideas and I am genuinely grateful for their constant participation, both as contributors and prompt responders. Nevertheless, I’ve decided it’s time to, if you’ll forgive the metaphor, declare the final chapter written and close the book.
The Blog Propellant, as the tag says, is here to give your writing a little propulsion, and, to continue the metaphor, a good book is always worth re-reading. So, while new prompts will no longer be posted, the catalog of prompts will remain accessible. If the prompts herein can plant a seed in a writer’s imagination for a story, then all the more reason to keep the site up for a while longer. At some future date, however, I will take the site down.
I wish all of you the best of luck and happy, happy trails. Keep on writing and blogging, because I’ll be doing the same. Keep in touch via my personal blog: by LRose.
Be well and thanks for playing along!
