A blog hangs in the balance

cemetaryHello? Hello? Anybody still out here?

If so, you may have noticed that my blog has been experiencing a deathlike silence since late October. Indeed, there is a bluish tinge to its lips, and its eyes stare glassily at the sky.

But wait! Is that a slight rise to its chest? If I hold a mirror to its mouth, will steam cloud its surface?

Perhaps, but its survival will require intubation. A slow drip of creativity. An iron-willed lung to breathe the life back into it.

The doctors say that, with time, therapy, and support from loved ones, a full recovery is possible.

About Marie Loughin

I love reading, writing, and editing speculative fiction of all sorts. My current focus is on writing contemporary fantasy, where I get to play god with characters from myth and legend. My Norse-based urban fantasy, Valknut: The Binding, is available at Kindle Books and other e-book retailers. You can find me at my blog (marieloughin.com) and on Twitter (@mmloughin).

    Well, anything worth doing is worth doing right. Takes time. No worries.

  3. You’re right, Silvernfire. Maybe my blog is like Tinkerbell. Just clap your hands, everyone!

  4. Sending healing thoughts! This shows that spark of life still burns!

  5. Sorry I’m slow to respond. I was looking for the CPR instrutions. In the meantime, I’m frantically clapping.

  6. I read your blog, my friend! :)
