I live… I did not dissolve into a puddle in the rain (for those days I am a close cousin to the Wicked Witch from Oz)… I did not forget how to type… I did not vacation in the stars on an alien spaceship… I have just been silent for a bit.
Life has gone on since I decided to stop writing daily posts. I did not disturb some cosmic force by changing things and I feel more relaxed. So, in my book that is a win. I did not really intend to take a break from reading too, but it seems I have done that as well. But I will shortly begin reading through post soon. Since I am more than two weeks behind I will probably not comment a lot. But I will read all I can!
Things have been ok… not great, but not awful either. I have dear friends I connect with regularly and I know I would be lost without this communication and love. Still have my doctor visits and health issues to monitor but day by day I continue. AND it is getting nicer outside all the time. Today they are expecting near 70 for a high… bring on Spring!
I am hoping to start posting more pictures again and I leave you today with a bonus. This was a small bunch I poured out of my bag of baby carrots. You take these little surprises with a smile and be glad your life has been enriched in some small way. May you all find a little extra today! (((HUGS)))
Itinerant – a person who travels from place to place. As a writer we are itinerant like, traveling from story to story through the words we weave together. However sometimes there are roadblocks and detours, and that is where I am at.
I don’t want to hate writing. I don’t want to lose my muse forever. Some changes need to be made to assure these things do not happen. I have been close to a post a day for 5 years now. Lately I am struggling to get posts done. It causes me anxiety and guilt which I don’t need to complicate my life. So, I had to come up with a plan.
I will no longer struggle to post a daily word prompt challenge (sorry Fandango!) but that doesn’t mean I wont occasionally join in on the prompt. I need to clear my head and sometimes the best way to do that is to write it out. I will be writing more on my own whether it be what I am feeling, hoping, reliving or just flat out dreaming. I will still come close to a post a day, but I will no longer demand it of myself.
I hope my readers will not be offended by this change in course. I feel I am just ready to relax a little and regroup my life. And my writing is a part of it. So, this week I will begin some changes. I hope you will all bear with me and stay along for the ride. I can’t promise it will always be fun, but I will always put a little bit of me into all I do.
Thanks for reading and sticking with me. May you all have a wonderful new month and remember Spring is just around the corner – HURRAH!
