Oh man...

So it's like what? Almost the end of April now? Yeah, that's about right. I always have those 'it's been forever' type posts. One every few months when I get so caught up with life that I don't find the time to be here...or the desire. I guess that makes me a little horrible. My inspiration has been more than a little lacking. But it's mostly because I've been suffering from morning sickness for almost 14 weeks now, along with a bunch of other little unpleasant aspects of being pregnant.


I haven't been writing. I've been thinking about writing. I can't tell you how many times I've sat with MS Word open and absolutely nothing has come out. I won't say it is as severe as me having lost my mojo. But I am so unbelievably distracted that I can't think.

So I am back. And I don't know what's going to happen. I kind of learned to stop trying to plan these things and just do what I have to do. Whatever that is. There's so much I need to catch up on. It's strange because like--I remember NOT having my own computer and finding a way to be here, and now that I do...I've been MIA.

I have this horrible flaw of not being able to stick to anything. My inspiration dries up faster than ice in the Sierra desert. Really. That's sad. I should be ashamed of myself.

So we'll see what happens this time around. Maybe reading some of your fantastic blogs will spark something to life.

But for now, I'm here.
And I think for me at least, it counts for something.

If this is any help to you, here's a music quote:

"The more you practice the more you want to practice, the less you practice the less you want to practice..."

I find it the same with writing. It's hard to get the ball rolling, but once it is, the words flow out.

Good luck and keep writing. You are very talented. (I've read some of the pieces you've posted here)

Thank you very much Aubrie..and that is the absolute truth in a nutshell. I never thought I'd see the day I'd be afraid to touch pen to paper so to speak.

But I am coming around...and so glad to still see you about!
