On a Final Note
Posted by Luther D. Powell on December 20, 2012
Good news, everybody! My friend in Romania (she lives 7 hours ahead of us, so it’s after midnight for her) is STILL ALIVE! :gasp: That means the world will be fine.
No, seriously, if I hear another end-of-the-world prediction, I’m going to drive to wherever this person is and I will throw an angry kitten at him/her.
In other news, this is my last post here at Reflections. :cue weeping: “I’d like to thank the academy…”
Though my time here has been short (somewhere around a year), it’s been fun and quite the learning experience. If I’ve learned anything more about being a writer, whether writing blogs or stories or bad jokes, it’s that, writing is now and always will be a self-motivating job. (My keyboard stammered and missed the ‘s’ on ‘self-motivating’ for a second, so it said ‘elf-motivating.’ I could have left it and made a dumb Christmas joke, but I didn’t…) No amount of encouragement, inspiration or watching scary movies is going to get a book written. It’s all about sitting down and WRITING SOMETHING. This applies to me during my Christmas Break now more than it did during the semester, because now I don’t have homework to distract me.
Haha…yes, I think of homework as a distraction from my writings. I’m a terrible student.
This really has been nice, though. I’m not the best at coming up with topics on the spot, but either way, writing is writing, and I always learn more about myself and others when I take the time to speak my mind in public. Public…Internet…same thing.
I’m definitely going to try keeping in touch with the Reflections crew, and I’m thinking of starting my own blog eventually. I’ll get around to it. I have too many thoughts and ideas to confine them to a personal journal; I’d rather bounce ideas off other readers and hear what they have to say about this and that. I’d post a link to my ‘new blog’ if I had one at the moment, so for now I’ll just say, keep an eye out for me here on WordPress. Of course, this isn’t about me. It’s about Jesus, and I happen to be passionate about spreading the Good News, so if you like hearing it from me, then come find my other blog when I make it. We’ll spread the Good News together!
With that, I bid readers a fond farewell, happy holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah and winter solstice for whomever celebrates whatever. Happy Birthday Jesus! Thanks again for reading all my rantings, cheers and God bless!
