Writing Prompt: Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. (Frivolous)
Here’s the thing I write for me, I write about what I want to at the moment, most if off the cuff, and probably doesn’t make any sense to anyone but me, but I write it anyway. I like it, I find it enjoyable and a creative outlet, and when I don’t do it I miss it . Now saying that here’s the thing:
Yesterday’s post (as is this one is being written at 4 in the morning) I was tired, and forcing myself to do a lakefront sunrise walk despite being in pain… I say a new challenge, I took it and I thought that I had the perfect picture found a poem. And yes there might have been some things that I may have forgotten…. for example I didn’t realize that didn’t add a header, I realized this while I was walking on the lakefront…. And Oh My God. I didn’t freaking properly cite Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I have created the ultimate sin and plagiarized .(eye roll) his poem. And after it was brought to my attention I did think about going back and correcting my mistake…. but really?
Now I admit being in pain has made me more sensitive that I need to be but for fucks sake are you serious, I appreciate my followers and am grateful and generally surprised when people want to follow this teeny, tiny blog that’s really about nothing. But seriously…. it my blog, you don’t have to like anything I write and you certainly don’t need to comment. I wanted to be 100 percent transparent and I approved the post, but I had to take a minute to quickly write something, maybe not super eloquent, but it was what I felt. a “Seriously do you think I stole the fuckin’ poem?” Only to be replied to in what I felt like my teacher was scolding me. Once again my reply was quick and concise “Thank you for you comment 9in this case) mean fuck you!
So here’s the take a way, if you don’t like what I post, that’s totally up to you, if something I said offends you that’s your right (although it’s not my intention) but please don’t come to my blog to school or educate me. For the record I do know to properly site a source, If I didn’t learn in high school, I learned in college, and what I didn’t learn in college got grilled into me when I was in grad school, and dealing with the ORI while writing the thesis certainly burned into my soul.
3 F bombs in one post (or was it 4). This entry was totally frivolous…. and in my opinion so was that comment.
Now I’m going to the gym to have a woosah moment.
Until Next Time,
