Life has been a busy blur these last 8 months. My son started school last Fall, my Dad started having health issues in October leaving my parents heavily dependent on me for transportation needs. Negative comments on my shop pages almost prompted me to quit selling Vintage all together (which is something I love) and the list of negative things just goes on and on.
Through all of this, I still managed to enjoy life and stay productive though.
Honestly, writing had been on the back burner you guys. 2019 has been interesting, to say the least.
Not writing however, always hurts me. It’s been a refreshing outlet for me for so long. When I don’t do it, t’s literally like holding my breath underwater. Either I come up for air or risk blacking out and drowning.
My husband actually reminded me last week that I had sent him a finished manuscript for a Novel that I completed way back in 2016. I had totally forgotten that I actually have finished manuscripts just waiting to be edited and published. Crazy right?
But you know when life gets hectic and messy mess, it can be stifling to ones creativity.
Being a writer is hard!
Sometimes the ideas don’t flow like water out of the faucet. Sometimes you don’t write everyday. Heck, in my case sometimes you don’t write for weeks!
Writing does require a certain amount of focus.
Focus is what I have severely lacked due to all this other stuff going on in life.
It’s time for me to stop holding my breath though. Nobody wants to feel like they’re drowning in life itself.
I am hoping with the Summer months coming up I can get back to it. With me not having to utilize every moment of my 6 hours that I usually have from the time I dropped off Jr. at school, to the time I picked him up to actually relax and get some writing in.
Are you guys excited about Summer? I am for other reasons as well. I’ll share some next post.
Until next time…
