Friday Flash 55......

From the very first time that you try it, the addiction begins! Once you experience the exhilaration, you are hooked! As in anything, at first you become a whore to it, you CAN'T get enough! Then, as in anything...
The frequency wanes.
Quality becomes unimportant.
Passion is just a distant memory.
Blogs go unattented..
Blogs die.....
.

Have a GREAT week-end everybody, if you or someone you know has written a Flash 55, please let me know, I will be over to read, enjoy, and comment..
.
Peace....!!!

You forgot to mention that blogs get erased, blogs come back and then blogs die again. It is tough, once you have been hooked and spent so much of your precious time blogging and then escape, you really don't want to take a chance of getting hooked again. We have lost more talented people that way.

Very nice 55. I thought at first you were talking about writing 55s.

G-Man said...

No Bryan, writing 55's is easy and enjoyable. I still have a passion for blogging, I just don't have the time that I would like to devote to it....G

James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

Ah, a very poignant 55 G-man. Nicely done.

My humble offering is up as well.

SignGurl said...

I thought you were talking about riding a motorcycle until I got toward the end. That or weed.

Have a great weekend, G-baby!

SignGurl said...

P.S. my 55 is up!

barman said...

Mine finally is up. I was a little tired last night and decided to sleep on it. I hope to make the rounds when I get back home as I am running a tad late this fine morning.

... always look on the bright, side of life ...

lime said...

it's a sad life cycle of a blog isn't it? but a t least it's longer than a mayfly.

Polt said...

Yeah, man ain't it the truth? And it's sad when someone you've been reading and commenting on and talking for 6 months or a year suddenly disappears.

At any rate, I did a 55 Friday myself this week. In your honor. :)

HUGS....

Old blogs never die; they just fade away. Have a happy weekend.:)

Strumpet said...

As per your request, Sir Galen...

Akelamalu said...

Ah that's sad! Glad to hear you haven't lost your passion for blogging.

Mine's up too. x

snowelf said...

I thought you were talking about bikes. :)

Happy Friday Galen!
I posted my whole story thus far, so lots of sets of 55's are up. :)

Lori said...

I did my first 55 today! I have been watching it over on Signgurl's blog and finally got enough inspiration to try it...as dumb as it is. lol Just letting you know!

S said...

You forgot to mention that responsibilities cause us to WORK instead of blog.
Seems like having a preteen daughter, rising gas, utility prices, exhorbitant food bills....has forced me to work and NOT blog.

I am up, pup with my 55 and you are now the official host! I have announced!

Little Wing said...

Hi G-daddy.
My blog is in limbo right now, with so much going on in real life.
I will try to read everyones flash 55 though, and may return some day.
Love to you all!

Rebicmel said...

I did a flash this week. Have a great weekend and enjoy Borders tonight

Charles said...

Aight, G. (Alright, G; for those who wouldn't know.)
I thought for sure you were addressing riding, but I should know better.

I have posted the last 55 in the series I wrote, although I suppose I could milk it for some more, but this is the last I thought of originally.

To blog or not to blog. Mine is up.

I hope your blog doesn't die :(

G-man:

Sorry you had a hard time finding it. This is it. http://myrtlebeachramblings.blogspot.com/2008/03/3-word-wednesday-55-flash-fiction.html

evalinn said...

Great 55! I´ve been thinking of it, but never got started...we´ll see...

Have a wonderful weekend, G-man!

Strumpet said...

So wise is Hot Mona.

So wise.

Hope you had fun at Borders, Gayland!

Strumpet said...

Oh, and I sent you a postcard from Florida.

I mean, I bought the postcard in Florida, but I sent it out from here yesterday because I procrastinate.

Mona said...

GALEN!!!!

WE LOVE YOU!!!!

Strumpet said...

Lisa Marie,

I turned-off all my lights from 8 to 9 and only used battery-operated devices.

The double-A kind.

we don't need to do that strumpet & Lisa. We face a 6 hours average load shedding everyday.

Strumpet said...

Ooops, that was me.

My computer is being REALLY weird.

I think lappy is just jealous of my other battery-operated toys.


Hot Mona, it needed to happen. Trust me. I would have done it with, or without, the Earth Hour excuse.

But, this way, I can say it was for a good cause!

^_~

Load-shedding, however, seems to fit right into my theme.

LN- Nickers and Ink said...

Umm.... what is a flash 55?

Sounds like fun.

Blessings,
Linda

javajazz said...

oh man,
how could i have missed all this??
yes, if everyone did a little
load shedding every week
what a happy world it would be.

jeez, i never even thought of that, Strumps,
silly me, i drummed and fluted
and lit candles and reflected,
but it never even occurred to me
to do a little load shedding....
lord knows i could have used some,
it couldnt hurt,
and its darn good for the
environment
even if it does wear my batteries down
just a bit...
but i totally dug the idea
of this world wide effort
and i'd do it again next week,
even if no one else was playin'...

javajazz said...

...Lappy...! (giggle.)

smarmoofus said...

*hides* You wrote that about me, didn't you? Just because I only posted once in the last month doesn't mean I'm done forever. I won't let it die... I won't!

Great 55, g-man! Very timely for me, as I've just put up my first 55 in four weeks. I've been busy, though. I am 2200 miles away from where I was the last time I wrote one. And I got here by car.
