Tell us about something you’ve tried to quit. Did you go cold turkey, or for gradual change? Did it stick?
I’ve tried quitting these tired, stale prompts. I don’t know why I keep coming back for more reruns. It’s a bad habit.
I really hoped that with the new year, we’d be done with the reruns. Sigh.
I’ve tried looking at each rerun as a new opportunity to come up with a new perspective. Sometimes I’ve succeeded. Sometimes I finish the new effort, then go back and read the old one. Same old same old.
Rest in peace, Old Daily Prompts
I have this thing about loyalty. I wish Word Press felt the same way. “A new prompt every day,” they say. Apparently they figure the average blogger is going to last for only a couple of years, maybe three.
I have to be honest, though. I like using the grid, knowing that many bloggers will see my posts and read them. I don’t feel right about using the daily prompt grid, as one or two people do, when they never use the daily prompt. Seems like cheating. So I’m afraid my daily readership would dwindle to nothing, and the point, after all, is to have lots of people reading what you write.
Oh, the agony! To prompt or not to prompt, that is the question.
