W…moreI believe the best way to deal with writer's block is to write through the block. Sometimes writing comes very easily, other times can be difficult. When it becomes difficult, I have to put more thought into what I am writing. And since what I write can be rewritten, or even deleted, the point is that I have been able to work through the block. I might add that sometimes a person is simply physically or mentally exhausted, and perhaps it might be wise to skip a day from writing to get recharged. (less)

Return to Facebook

I ended my self-imposed exile from Facebook on Sept. 15. I decided to take a sabbatical from the social-media site after it proclaimed one of my posts violated its guidelines (you'll have to go to my page to see what I shared on Aug. 15) and prompted a 30-day banishment (all I could do was be a spectator). It wasn't worth my time to be there.

What did I miss while being away from Facebook? From
