A Valentine letter to Writing

Writer Unboxed latest post consists of the contributor’s Valentine notes to Writing.

Now, I’m not a contributor, but I have been in a long-term relationship with writing, so like many readers I too added mine in the comments. 

. . . then I thought it would also look nice here (with a few minor revisions – Writing requested them) . . . 

~ ~ O ~ ~

Dear Writing,

You know I respect you and enjoy your company, and I appreciate all the worlds, ideas, and characters you’ve helped me explore . . .

. . . but . . .

. . . look, no offense, but you need to start pulling your weight around here. For instance, it would be nice if once in a while you would bring in a few buck.

And, what’s with consistently being the least-read posts on my blog? Yes, perhaps my readers are not the reading type, preferring Photography over you, but still, I put a lot more effort into you than Photography.

Lest you think yourself not beautiful, not clever, and not worthy of praise, know I think the world of you. Of all the Writing I come across, I much prefer reading you, oh my Writing, over any other.

. . . but . . .

. . .this relationship is difficult for me; I need something in return, you see. 

I showcase you, present you to the unwashed masses, give you a pedestal from which to shine, but you just sit there.

If you could only make the effort to grab a few more readers, ensnare them with the goodness I know is in you, and open their eyes to the depth and breadth of your brilliance . . . but you just don’t seem to care.

Don’t worry; I’m yours forever, and you are mine, but still . . . could you give me any indication you want to be my valentine?

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

  1. This unwashed mass confesses, “I love your photos, but your writing is cool, too.” ;-)


  2. This…your valentine to Writing…is wonderful. I hope you and Writing will spend much time together this year. And I hope you both are willing to continue to share here. Your writing and your photographs have added joy to my life. :-)
    I love to write and have volumes and volumes of stories, poems, words that no one will ever read. But, writing has been a companion, a listener, and has helped me through some tough times.
    (((HUGS))) and hope you and Melisa had a sweet day today! :-)

    Seems your Writing is shy and reserved. Perhaps more wooing is needed to coax It to respond. I think more love letters to It are an EXCELLENT idea for future posts!!! I, for one, would love to read them.

    Praise, . . . appreciation . . . loving attention . . . best lures I know of.
