I follow a wonderful writer,
who blogs under the name
You really should go over
and read her work.
I love it.
She gave me an award,
under my pen name
which I have posted over there.
But I felt bad that
even though I adore this woman,
I wasn't going to write a post about her
at my other blog.
I want to keep my writing blog just that:
I don't know why I need to do that --
I just do.
All you people with OCD will understand.
Something happens when I log in
under my pen name.
It's like a muse to me.
Here, I can be Crazy Mo
and make everyone laugh
(although, I appreciate, today ...
not so funny),
but with my Writing Hat on
I can be someone else.
I am a Writer;
hunched over a manual typewriter,
cigarette dangling from my mouth,
half-empty glass of scotch
leaving water rings on the walnut desk.
I know that ShePoet understands.
Know that I love your work
and I very much appreciate the award.
Updated: ShePoet has left the BloggerSphere.
We don't know where she is, or why she left.
I hope she's well.
ShePoet ... if you read this, post a note
so we all know you're ok.
We miss you!"
