Delusions of grandeur

Bloggie friends!!!

I started writing a blog post about my sweet elderly neighbour but then the post grew into a proper story!

So forgive me please and understand the writer in me cos I seriously did think “Gosh darn it, this is far too good for a blog post – no I can’t share , I won’t, don’t make me but when it's published, then I'll share, oh yes I will!"

LOL!

Who says blogging isn’t inspirational?!?! Who says I’m not a paranoid selfish delusional crazy person?!?! :-)

Charlie says: I just lay here and wait for next door to call.


Have a fabulous mid-week, everyone!

More power to you, Kitty. And Charlie looks bemused by it all. Say, has Blogger snatched your folllowers like it has mine? Roland

Summer Ross said...

Inspiration is one of those things you can find almost anywhere! Glad you found some today!

Ann Best said...

Oh, that is so wonderful that it turned into a "proper" story. You SHOULD save it for publication. I know it will deserve that, more than a blog post.

And I'm SO glad you're excited to read my memoir. It's difficult sometimes to believe this is all happening. I have to pinch myself. Well, I'd better stop that or I'll be bruised from head to toe.

I'm looking forward to your reaction, whatever it might be. Seriously!

Jen gives you and me both a High Five!

I know exactly how you feel because it seems that if I write too lengthy of a post the less comments I receive. Maybe it is my imagination and everyone is reading the long posts but not commenting. Anyway, I'd love to read about your neighbor either via blog or in a published book!

Deborah said...

I would like to read about your neighbor! Also, congratulations on your the Japan poetry book. That is so cool!
xxoo

Jayne said...

Yeay for proper stories! Nowt wrong with keeping them for use somewhere else. :)

Niki said...

aw I wanna know what it is now!! :) How exciting. Keep working on it.

Manzanita said...

I don't blame you. I try to keep my posts short but I notice when I write longer it becomes a story, although I don't ever intend that.
Good for you. Can hardly wait to read the published story.

Eliza said...

good luck with the story :-)

Fuzzy Tales said...

I think it's very cool that a simple blog post turned into something more. I hope we can read it at some point!

Clarissa Draper said...

We're writers. Paranoid selfish delusional crazy is part of the job description.

Madeleine said...

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie are you waiting for the sound of foods from your neighbour's kitchen - don't miss the chance of a snack or two!
Fancy telling us about your story and then not letting us read it Jenn that was very naughty!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Congratulations on your newest article/story! Don't you just love it when you get shiny new ideas!

Have a great week, Jennifer!!!

Kat_RN said...

Not paranoid, delusional or selfish, but perhaps a bit of a tease. Oh well, gives me more to look forward too. Let us know when it is out. :)

Congrats on getting inspired to write a story instead of a blog post!

Glad to see it's another sunny day for Charlie.

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

We know it will be a best seller when you get it published....and we will be in line to buy it.

Charlie, you have the right idea, handsome friend.

Love to both of you.

A blog post that turns into a short story -or even a book, perhaps? That sounds wonderful to me! Get your inspiration where ever it comes from and follow the muse!
