Last night I couldn’t sleep (again), so I got up and wrote the first thing that came to my mind on my Facebook page. It was something like:
Inflation affects everything. Someone offered me a penny for my thoughts, and I gave them my two-cents’ worth. They had no interest in that.
And today I see the Daily Post writing prompt is all about offering a penny for my thoughts. Hmmm….
Maybe I should charge $20 and see if I get any takers.
Maybe I should develop some thoughts worthy of $20.
The point of all this is to just write – whatever comes into my mind, write it down. So, that’s what is about to happen. Any minute now, that floodgate of thoughts will burst open and I won’t be able to get it all down fast enough. Or not. Maybe there will just be a trickle. Whatever happens, it’s all coming out right here right now.
I vaguely remember when I first started toying with the idea of starting a blog or three. I thought to myself, “Self, someday you may have something to say that someone besides your husband and your best friends will want to hear. So start writing, girl!”
So I did. And here I am, several thousand words later with not a twenty to show for it. But the pure joy of writing, the fun of sharing ideas with other bloggers, the anticipation of visitors (did I tell you I love having company over?), the “I feel a blog post coming on” feeling . . . it would take a lot more than twenty to cover all that.
All this to say that my thoughts may only be worth two cents, but the fulfillment I get from sharing them is priceless.
What’s on your mind? Yes, I’m asking for your two cents’ worth. It’s worth a fortune to me!
