Hi. Welcome to Mixed Gems. You haven’t met me yet…..oh, I guess you have now.
I’ve been lurking here in a rather drafty room. I’ve only been here a few of days but I’m not lonely; well, at least I’m not alone. There are 42 others in this waiting room with me. A few have even been here for months, so I’ve heard.
Every so often, the door opens, and we get a look in. Some of us are more organised and ready than others but when that crack of light appears, we all sit pretty, vying for attention, hoping to finally get the chance to see the light of day.
I’ve been told by the old ones that some days are very frustrating. A newbie comes to join us, and within an hour they’re gone, promoted in a flash to enjoy the public eye and all the related accolades.
Other days, our hopes are raised as we are primed, primped and prettied up, only to have those hopes dashed when we’re stood up at the last moment.
I’m now in a quandary. I’m not sure that I want to stay here for the getting of wisdom and patience. Isn’t being famous more important?
Well, I don’t have a key to the door so it’s not up to me, is it? Let’s hope I get to meet you properly in all my finery real soon. PJs and bed hair don’t make a good first impression. Ciao for now!
Do you have the tendency to hoard draft posts? How many are sitting in your drafts folder right now? Why have they not seen the light of day? Do you declutter and delete them or save them for a rainy day?
