At a Loss for Words 3

I don’t know what to say in this post, which isn’t really like me. I’m a writer and a talker who usually doesn’t know when to quit at either so this is unusual for me.

I’m at a loss for words because my weekly column in the local paper The Herald Journal got cancelled. The details are unfair and unpretty and I don’t want to be all sour grapesy about it, so I’m just going to let it lie.

But I am bummed about it.

I mean, it’s not like you have to have a “paper” to write for anymore to be a recognized writer. With the deluge of internet media platforms anybody can write about anything and post it for all the world to read. But I’m still a bit old school and I liked being in print.

And I have local followers who exclusively read the paper in print and I’ll miss them. I hope they’ll miss me. I hope they’ll miss me enough to write or call or email the paper and tell them they miss me.

But I can still write here on my blog, of course. And I will. Just not much right now because I’m a bit bummed, and at a loss for words…

    I’m so sorry Kar!! That really stinks! They are the ones who are losing out and made a big mistake letting you get away. I’m just glad I can still read your genius on your blog.

    Kari-I’ve been a faithful reader of yours in the Herald Journal and have definitely noticed your absence. I looked forward to your witty articles every Sunday and wondered where you disappeared to! I’ve never written to a newspaper to complain, but now I must! But at least I know where to find you. Keep writing and sharing your endearing and hilarious anecdotes! The HJ head honcho must be an idiot and they need a new editor to boot!
