But of late it has just been the sheer volume of opinions--a veritable tidal wave of noise and clamor coming from all directions that has left me speechless.
There is also so much good stuff that I’ve been lost in BlogCandyLand, wherein I think, well, they said it so well, we’ll just leave it at that. Add that to the preponderance of opinions, rabid and often rude, and I think, well, we'll just leave it at that.
So I caught a bad case of blog silence.
Until I came across this:
The Great American Sentence: A Contest
Yes, yes. If you win you get double the prize money if you promote the contest. But that is not my motivation here (really. No, really!) I think this is worthy because it is right up our alley—it is what WordLine is all about. In fact, I wish I had thought of it first! (Pooh!)
So get your sentences out, brush them off, and toss a couple of them over onto Easy Street. I’m playing with some myself, here. Let me know if you come up with something that particularly gives you nachas.
I think this is going to get me started again. I think this is going to prime my pump.
Look out, World!
