Expect to see more of them! This blog is currently undergoing Writer’s Block, aka lazyitis. A serious condition that inflicts those commonly associated with reading novels, more than writing stories. This may, or may not, change in the future. The author of this post finds his eyes constantly travelling to this rendezvous, only to return and find out just how long ago it was that he last spilled ink. Oops. To save pride, if anything, I will have to correct this.


Good evening,

I’ve been pondering over this blog for the past week. The intention was for a gathering of many writers, to commune with one another and spill ink, daily. However, we’re still in the early stages of whatever this may truly turn out to be, so bear with us. I was a little irked at first, when I noticed the blank spots on our Sooty Calendar, but it’s not a worry. I’m not ambivalent towards this project, just relaxed.

At the start of the week, I was filled with a mad urge to post-post-post, but that goes against my natural state of mind. And besides, the original idea from Veriel was for this to be my blog alone, so, it’s not like low activity was unprecedented. I don’t want to push people into joining, nor do I want to pester others to write something for Footprints.

We forget most of all, that what we do isn’t supposed to be work. Writing is meant to be fun. Though writing under duress can be kind of cool, sometimes.

It is known. ๐Ÿ˜‰

P.S. As we leave November swiftly behind, and lead into December, our final month of the year, I want to make December a special one. And keep this nice and full over the holidays. Everyone can use a little light reading, especially during times of inner turmoil, as a lot go through in this hectic period.

May you dampen a few pages with your ink. ๐Ÿ˜€

I will soon be embarking to attract potential writers/contributors to this place, along with adding some defining posts. So, you’ll soon come to understand what we’re aiming for here.

Keep an eye out.

Greetings readers

You may be wondering what this is that you’re reading. It’s an attempt at something our writers feel has, to this point, been left overlooked by other bloggers out there. We will not be focussing on eclipsing others, or making this into a competition of some sort. Our main goal is to write in a free-fashion – for the love of it – and out of a sense of promoting human themes through what we write. No matter how dark and overbearing. Or too light and quirky.

Footprints on the page‘ will work as a both a centre for snippets, and longer pieces of writing, on occasion, as well as rare book reviews and perhaps non-fiction, if it relates.

We heartily welcome contributions from others. I’d like the style to be similar to my own and my fellow writers literary interests, that is: Spec-Fic.

We will not be focusing on any one medium, genre or area essentially. But our intent is to explore the weird, the surreal, the fantastical. As far as the ‘reviews’ go, it’ll be be things that grab us and speak to us in a rare and enigmatic way, unlike most other things.ย What the individual that is posting the piece likes – something that strikes them deeply.

The blog posts will be worded in a concise and quick-to-read fashion. We will always accept writers/contributors, to a point, and take into consideration every one that makes themselves available, giving them a fair and reasonable chance of joining us.

This blog will not operate under a running theme, though this may change on special occasions. If enough interest is displayed, we’ll deliver.

Footprints on the page’ is an evolving multi-blogger project.

Thank you for your time,

We hope you stay with us, to see what we produce.
