Why do we name it monster?

I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.

I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing.

This is my first blog. I am in unknown waters. The online world is scary. Confounding. My writing is done with a pencil and paper. Not with code and tags and widgets that all need to be enabled and mapped and linked and clicked at like an arcade game. But this is the new world. I am crossing a dark ocean to get to it. The monsters I encounter in the voyage become part of the tale. And that is what I’m here to do–find a story to bring back and tell.

Its eyes blazed across the ocean roil. Its teeth gleamed in the bright salt air. A roar rushed from its maw as if a thousand souls had taken up the cry of selfhood at once. You don’t believe me? I tell you, it’s out there. I’ve seen it.

    • Thank you! I’m enjoying it so far. So many great blogs to read! It’s going to be a great conversation, I think.


  1. Your becoming is brilliant. Welcome to the open seas. Grab your snack pack and scower the waters for amazing new stories, life altering shares, and all around good solid fun!


  2. You seem to be doing quite well so far… it took me a month to figure out how to put a picture on my blog!
    Welcome to the sea of WordPress πŸ™‚


    • I still have no idea what I’m doing…:) But it is fun. And I love reading other people’s blogs. I was getting tired of the distracted nature of Facebook. I enjoy the longer conversations. I had to work my way up though!


      • This certainly is a great place to get to know like-minded people. In the eight months I’ve been here I’ve learned to love it, as I’m sure you will too. πŸ™‚


  3. Arlitia- I was exactly where you were last December. I am surprised by how much I love being a bloggist–I like that word better than blogger. It has improved my writing, my computer skills, my photography. It’s a good thing. I am looking forward to reading more!


    • Maria, I do like this being a “bloggist” so far. At first I wondered what I would ever have to write about but then i decided I would just open my eyes and take a deep breath, hold still for a moment and look at what was happening around me. Something I don’t do enough of. And I like it better than Facebook. The conversations are deeper and not filled with cat videos… don’t get me wrong, I love the cat videos and star trek memes, but I want something that doesn’t scroll past so quickly. Keep up the quilting!
