Oh No - No Story Today

Oh, dear. There is no storytelling going on here today. Nothing new in the inbox - zero, zilch, nada.

In eight months since the launch of this blog, this has never happened before. But there are many good stories here. You can find them by clicking on any of the storyteller names in the right sidebar or by choosing a month. In either place, you can browse titles and just a click of your mouse will take you to a story.

If you would like to help keep The Elder Storytelling Place going by contributing a tale or two, it’s not hard. Stories are accepted from anyone age 50 and older. Here are the guidelines.

Ronni we can't have that! I will see what I can donate

I thought I had sent one?

Golly, I am not sure I have any others that I haven't sent yet, but I'll search for something.

I thought you had one of mine in reserve, too, but ...

How about posting stories less frequently than every day? I can't keep up reading them at that rate.

This Elder Storytelling Place is just too special to not continue.

I can't believe the you've run dry of posts Ronni. I'll look to see what I may have...

Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to post these stories less frequently...maybe every two or three days in stead of every day....like joared said.

Surely you jest! Is this not an invitation for we who enjoy it here to promote this wonderful lounge?

Ronni, I read your post on "As Time Goes By." You sound tired, and discouraged, and understandably at the end of your rope. It's hard to keep on keeping on every single day. We love you and need you to take care of yourself. Take a deep breath, a break, a bubble bath, a nap, a vacation -- whatever will restore you.

If you don't want to keep scrounging for stories, how about only posting when they spontaneously arrive? I hope at least you can keep the site up for a good long while. There's so much great stuff here it's going to take me lots longer to finish reading it all.

Thank you for everything you've done, and will yet do in the future.

Dear Ronni,
Please consider what others have suggested.

Keep the same story up for 2 or 3 days. It will give readers more time to read the story and a lot more time to comment.

If there is anything we can do to help you please let us know so we can rest assured that YOU are all
right which is really the only important thing.

I asked my mother (90) to write the story of the family wedding dress she's always been planning to do "some day". And I'll ask some of my memoir writing friends if they have some good ones to share. We can all help more. You have done so much to inspire so many people. I add my words to those above and on TGB comments, "Do what you need to do to refresh yourself" (all internet puns intended).
