Dear Blogging Friends, I am writing a story about the day my family was nearly eaten by lions.  It is getting rather long, probably 1,500 words all up.  Should I split the story into two parts and publish over a couple of nights.  Or should I just publish it in its entirety?

Am I teasing you?  Maybe just a little.  True story.

Thoughts?

Regards
Tracy

        O Me! O Life!
        BY WALT WHITMAN
        Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
        Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
        Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
        Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
        Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
        Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
        The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?

        Answer.
        That you are here—that life exists and identity,
        That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

        Walt doesn't SAY but he definitely DID contribute his verse in his own voice, with his barbaric YAWP!!!

  1. I think Martha is right in general, but I if you’re publishing on WP I think a good cliff-hanger split is a good idea. Most of us follow lots of blogs and genuinely want to engage with them, but the absolute volume of posts makes that difficult. I know i’ll skip over posts that are long simply because I feel pushed for time. I intend to come back and read them, but don’t always.
