Back to the Blog


Sometimes all it takes is a door opening and all you have to do is walk through.

I was up this morning- out of bed at 7:30, shower, dressed, bed put back together, home opened to the new day in windy sunshine.. Another day to charge around my apartment with my devices nearby- two laptops, a phone, iPad, recharging station hidden under my couch pillows on the chaise, tv remote…coffee, and the day begins once again- Friday? okay.

Laptop lid is up by 8:30 and there’s a note from Ruth. What? and a personal  invitation to write with a small community and instantly retrieve  my first invitation to write in a small community from my memory banks- a door opens again and all I have to do is walk in…

So Ruth and old/new friends I am dusting off my Digital Bonnie blog and jumping back into regular blogging. Just like that!

That’s not to say I haven’t been writing.  I have. Now in this Corona World I have been writing daily at 10am(any minute) and 10pm with a writing project friend who shows up on her Face Book page religiously to lead a 15 minute session and I’m with her.  My local writing project , Hudson Valley Writing Project offers weekly community writing sessions on Thursdays, the National Writing Project offers a writing sessions on Wednesday nights, the Albany Writing Project offers one on Monday afternoons. I attend all of them and write like crazy, usually to poems.  And we meet on Zoom in small groups to share and yes, I do share but maybe this is the perfect time to move my writing life back to my blog.

All those writing starts are calling out to me…

                 Bring us to your blog!!!! Take time with each of us, revise us and send us out to be read…

Okay, okay,  I’m back 🙂

  1. It was nice to open my Reader page this morning and see your name at the top. You are my Easter Surprise! Glad you are willing to share your writing at your blog site again.

  2. BONNIE! I missed you during Slice of Life March and am glad to find you are okay and doing well. I love you description of having all of your devices ready to go. Hope you are doing well. I look forward to reading here more often. 🙂

  3. Dear Bonnie,
    How lovely that you returned. Thank you, from my whole heart, that you returned to this space. I am better because of the words you collect here. Sometimes I think the best writing happens without thinking — just writing. So glad you are open to joining us.
    Big hugs,

  4. I am so glad you are back. I have been wondering about you. Applause for your writing-wow. I have been reviewing books but not personal writing much. It’s a good nudge.

  5. Bonnie! So excited to hear your voice. You know that you were on my list of voices I missed in my last slice in March, right?
    And “Just like that!” you’re back!

    • Thanks Ramona,
      I did see your note and loved it. But Two writing Teachers was just too big for me to stay with. But it looks like Ruth opened a door at just the right time to return.

  6. I am super excited to read your blog. As a first time blogger I am hoping to learn a thing or two from people who have already written before. I hope to learn a thing or two from you!

  7. And there you are, in my RSS, as if you never left, Bonnie … I love that our writing spaces can “rest” for a bit but return when the time arises.

    • Wow Kevin I’ve been thinking about you. Are you joining Ruth’s new Thursday writing community like old times? I have to get comfortable again in the blogging world and to think, I almost deleted this as a part of my past to be buried.. Looks like I’m back.

  8. So happy to be joining in the writing/blogging again with you Bonnie! I agree, TWT just become too much, too big, Yes, a celebration, but I felt lost … this little group makes my heart happy!

  9. Hi Bonnie. How nice that you have so many community writing opportunities. That must be really fun. You inspired me to dust off my blog and begin writing again. t felt good and flowed easily, so hurray for that. I’m glad you’re doing well! Much love to you.
