I am guilty of lurking - if that is the right word (I know it applies to forums) - on other blogs. I have read excellent and very entertaining and informative posts and my finger has hovered over the comment button because I've been so eager to say something and what happens?
I find myself lost for words.
What if what I say sounds too trite? What if I waffle? And what if - horrors - I spell a word wrong or my grammar is glaringly incorrect. So I prevaricate and before I know it the moment is lost . . . several other people have already said what I wanted to say and said it so much better than I would have done!
I think this is why so many writers dislike using the phone. You don't get the opportunity to rewrite a phone call.
Anyway I am gradually feeling my way around (ooo-er-missus) blogland. One of these days I'll stick my head out of the window and say hello!
