A Scripted Maze

perils with writing and whatnot

About

Hello

My name is Glynis Jolly. I’ve been on the blogosphere for over fifteen year, flitting from one blogging host site to another. I still have blogs at other host sites but this is where I’m the most comfortable.

About

Image: Pen Waggener @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/epw/

I’m an older struggling writer try to complete that first novel. I’m sure once I’ve done that, I’ll want to continue to write more stories. You’ll find I’m obsessed with writing if you browse through this blog, although occasionally I will touch on other subjects.

How Older Am I?

I’m old enough so AARP can consider me a senior but I have a few years before I can apply for Medicare. I’m old enough to have salt and pepper hair (and I’m not a redhead). I’m old enough to not only be a grandmother, but a great grandmother to boot. I’m old enough to remember the unrest that was prevalent in this country (U.S.) during the Vietnamese War. I’m old enough to have been one of the demonstrators against that war, although just barely. I’m old enough to know I don’t know even half of what I could know if I had paid better attention all these years.

I hope you’ll distinguish my posts with your presence and be good enough to comment on what I write.

Welcome!

    When I first started blogging, I thought it was odd when people left a like or a comment on my about page but not on any of the posts. But I often do the same thing now–and it makes sense to me these days. Strange world, this blogging.

      I didn’t used to click on the ‘likes’ but I figured out that it was a way to tell the person I read their comment. This is especially handy when I don’t have anything to write back. That person at least knows I’m not ignoring him or her.

      Although I do read most about pages, I refrain from leaving a comment usually because there’s so many anyway. I’ll find a post to read at that blog and make my comment there.

      I do have to admit though it’s great to know someone is interested enough to read this page. 😉

      Thanks ❤

        …and so (of course) I hit the Like button on your reply.

        On my own blog, I use the Like button, in part, to let people know I’ve left a comment, because not all (or for all I know, any) of them will have checked the Notify me of new comments box. I checked that on someone’s blog once and am still getting pointless comments in my inbox, so I’m very, very sparing about checking it now.

    You are so right about the ‘About’ page! It is indeed the first stop folks usually make when they decide whether to follow a blog. I’ve been blogging for a year, and my ‘about’ page needs an overhaul. I didn’t pay much attention to it when I began my blogging journey. Ah, well, just one more thing for my ‘to do’ list – work on my ‘about’ page. 😀

    You have a nice blog. I’ve read your comments on Tess’ wonderful blog, ‘Let’s CUT the Crap’ and decided to check your blog out. I’m glad I did.

      Tess is such a dear. We’ve become good cyber friends.

      BTW, I’m following your blog now. 😀

      Yes, I am finding that some of my memories are a little intimidating to me. Some so that I’m still hesitant to write about them. Still, according to what I’ve read about being a writer/author, breaking through these walls will make me a better story teller. Onward and forward I trudge.

      It’s nice to find someone who feels the same kind of passion about this type of writing. 🙂

    You obviously made a good move by opening your blog, and yourself, up to the public! We all can identify with the “ups and downs,” and in fact love to find that others have them and are willing to share with us!

    Keep up the good work. Thanks for your visit to “my place” as well.

Thanksgiving was postponed until tomorrow, 11/30 so that family who is out of town can make it here. This means that my time is somewhat limited until Sunday. Bear with me.

      I hate to burst your bubble but I’d rather be honest with you because I value your friendship. You’re actually the 3rd to read this blog. However, I’m being picky about who I invite and I’m inviting as I come across the people I want when I get an email from them. In other words, you were third because of when I received your email. Please don’t be upset. It was just how things happened, is all.
