Today’s Daily Prompt asks ‘what is your superpower? how and where will you use it to appear/disappear at will?’
Curiously, that feels like a continuing thread from my previous post about feeling unresolved about blogging onward. Which in turn elicited a back-and-forth with a blogging acquaintance in response:
PR: My bottomless self-doubt has paralysed blogging for the time not-being!
SB: Odd, how self-doubt cycles through us. When it’s gone, writing can be very very good; yet when it is upon us, all is horrid.
PR: Indeed, not only horrid, but self-perpetuating! Right now I am not a writer any more, and it’s like losing my identity! Where did I go, and was it all illusory, all along?
It is now clear, in the context of today’s prompt, how to define my superpower! To come and go as writer-illusionist. Sometimes writing is strong, powerful, has a will of its own. Other times, it is timid, shy, refusing to show itself. And since words are my identity, I must meekly follow along. Now you see me, now you don’t.
Now this appealed to me! Thank you. Your writing style is magnetic, warmly Nicole
Thank you, Nicole. It’s lovely to hear that my writing appeals outside my keyboard – even, it would seem, across the globe!
…and that’s why we write! Thank you for touching base, it made my day. Cheers, Nicole
