Blogging and writing every day can take up a lot of time.
I like blogging. I like writing. I like watching silent films. I can check out silent films on tape from the library. I use to watch a silent film every night. I haven’t watched a silent film in months. I’m too busy blogging and writing and reading. I don’t blog, write and read all the time. I’ve just gotten out of the habit of going to the library.

There’s a trick to writing short articles. Not only does a short article have to have a setup, a buildup and a payoff, it must also be complete. It must answer the reader’s expectations. Which is the same thing an article of any length must do.
I try to publish something on Triond and on my personal blog Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette every day. Things happen and on certain days nothing gets published. Of course, I do a lot of reading and commenting, too. I write short articles because I don’t have to research them and they don’t take much time to write. The main reason why I write such short articles for Triond and my blog is because I just like to write them.
Snow is still on the ground here in Pittsburgh but later today the temperature is suppose to be reach the low 40s and the sun will be shining. It would a good time to take a walk to the library.
