My Take on Blogging Into 2012, an “Introspective”

Yesterday my final guest ‘broke bread’ with me on Blogging into 2012 aka This and That. This month long journey has seen a variety of men and women writers presented, one highlighted each day. They cover every genre in writing imaginable, whether it be fantasy, romance, scifi, paranormal, YA, mystery, memoir, or fill in the blank. These 31 authors come from different walks of life and different parts of the world. Some are young, some are old, some aren’t talking. Many have never met in the flesh, all of us being pretty much cyber buddies, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t genuine, shared devotion. What each one has in common with the other is talent, dedication, sincerity, and good will. Most importantly, whatever life has dealt them, each one has chosen to write. Possibly, like me, they are driven to write.In rereading the interviews, I am moved by how many consider their children to be their greatest accomplishment, how they appreciate their loved ones, how blessed most of them feel. I am touched by how the very act of writing and joy of being published spurs them on. I should say, spurs us on. For I strive to be one of these people, most certainly. It is devoutly to be wished.I want to thank each author for taking the time to visit This and That, and for sometimes sharing personal or little known facts. Thank you for your generosity, your kindness, and your openness of spirit. I treasure each of you. —————— Below is the list of guests for Blogging into 2012:January 1 – Roseanne Dowell January 2 – Terri Mann January 3 – Grace DeLucaJanuary 4– Laura NovakJanuary 5 – Dale Thompson January 6 – Gail Roughton Branan January 7 – Ginger SimpsonJanuary 8 – Karen Cote January 9…
