Where Is Everyone?

It seems odd that a community of mega millions can suddenly go quiet, but today the internet world seems deserted. There were few comments on blogs I, little going on at Facebook, even less going on at my live chat on Gather. (If you feel up to it,  stop by to visit. We can use the company! We meet every Thursday night at 9:00 pm ET at the featured article at my discussion group: No Whine, Just Champagne. Tonight is our 84th discussion, and though we usually talk about a specific topic, lately we’ve just been gossiping about writing.  Tonight we will be meeting here: No Whine, Just Champagne Discussion #84.)

Where do people go on the first day of the month that is more enticing than the internet? I know there are windstorms across the USA that might preclude the use of computers, but still, out of a community of millions, there should be something going on! Or perhaps the party moved, and I missed it. So, where is everyone?

    I know what you mean! I’ve been wondering the same thing, lately – it seems everyone is hard at work on other things. Or, if they’re like me and everyone else whose shopping carts were filled to the brim today, they do their food shopping on the first day of the month.

    Though, if they’re like me, they’ll be tired from spending over an hour at the store, and need to retreat to the blog world for a while. So maybe that’s not it after all.

      I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed. It just seems so strange to me — how can so many millions of people disappear at the same time? Maybe the bio-engineered disease in my novel A Spark of Heavenly Fire got to them. Nope — then we’d see bodies all over the place!

    September is usually spent getting down to business. I guess October is seen as a serious time in most people’s lives. So much to do, so little time. I know I feel the urge to get to work. Part of that is to emerge myself in writing so I don’t notice that winter’s just around the corner. I need to travel this month, so I could really use a few prayers. Please God, don’t let there be a blizzard until after I return home!

    The heck with all those other drivers. lol.

    Good post, as usual, Pat. You bring up the most interesting thoughts.

      There won’t be a blizzard. I have an in with the weather gods, and they promised you’ll be okay to travel.

        thanks, Pat. I joke about it, but icy road conditions really do leave me feeling sic. The point is I’m supposed to live each moment, not waste that moment worrying about the future. Silly me.

    My internet was driving me up the wall yesterday – pages taking forever to load… And my son was watching recorded soccer, so I got distracted.

    How did it get to be October?
