How has a week gone by?

karateRecently the days slip by like sand through my fingers and I realize that I haven’t even blogged
scratched out notes
written a letter
in nearly a week and that it feels like a part of me is missing.

Last week I spoke at Red River to first-year Creative Communication students with my internet buddy Liz Hover and one student asked

Do you make money directly off your blog? If not, why do you do it?

And I wasn’t sure if my response was the one he was looking for but after Liz replied I sat there and I paused and I said

Because I’m a writer. I have to write.

Which is true. Just typing out these words feels so cathartic and I feel a part of my stress over moving and work and everything slipping away.

It’s like getting lost in the words except I’m not, you know? Maybe you don’t.

Maybe I’m crazy, but aren’t we all, just a little?face

Anyway as I was saying I had the good fortune to be invited back to Red River where I got to talk to students about social media and blogging and a bunch of them stayed after to ask questions because

wouldn’t you know it?

we ran out of time.

I’ve been speaking to Creative Communications students for a few years running now and I’m consistently impressed with the quality and thoughtfulness of their questions.

Blog, I told them. Blog till yr sick of blogging and then blog some more.

Which is really great advice that I should really follow sometime.
