I haven’t written anything for almost a week now and it’s weighing on my mind. I like having this blog and I really enjoy writing. Unfortunately, I’m not finding the time I would like to put into writing here. With Hubby unemployed and home every day, I don’t have the luxury of sitting at my computer and staring at the screen trying to figure out how to word something exactly right. I like being left alone and apparently, at this time in my life, if I’m going to write I need to sit down and bang it out immediately with little or no thought. I don’t like that.
I realize that I was the one who put the target on my own back by deciding that I was going to have blog posts ready every weekday at 8am and BY GOD, that’s how it was going to be. Life doesn’t work that way and right now, I can’t either.
I will write for my blog when I am able to and won’t sweat the small stuff. I am not giving up my blog. That’s what I would have done in times past but now I’m taking my own words of advice to heart and saying, “Just go with the flow.”
The whole point of this blog was to force me to write and practice. That’s what I’ve done and will continue to do. However, I can’t turn it into work or I will begin to hate it and I will give it up. Besides, I still have my novel, which I haven’t touched since I started this blog. I need to find time to do both the blog and novel, and that’s what I intend to do. Even if you can’t see it here, know that I’m plodding away at my own pace…writing.
