Happy 2019!

I know it’s a bit late but Happy New Year!

I realize it’s been a while since I posted.
Since I wrote.
Since I imagined anything creative. Here are my excuses:

  • I was in a funk.
  • I couldn’t think.
  • I was busy.
  • I felt like I’d lost “it.”

While all of those things are true, I did allow myself to think about writing—as if it were a faraway thing I would do someday. Almost like when I grow up, I’m going to…

But I am grown up. I have written before and I have been pretty good at it. Had been.

If you’re like most people, myself included, you get lazy at times. You let things get in the way of progress or you quit. I did all of the above. Thinking about it now as I type, makes me mad because now it feels easy—almost second nature.

What happened to me?

  1. Well, hmm. Family? Everyone has one though so that’s not a good excuse.
  2. Illness? We all get sick from time to time, right? That’s not a good excuse.
  3. Lack of creativity? Creatives do go through periods where they are unproductive, right?

I think my issue is the latter and I wallowed there way too long. I wallowed in my sorrows of how to move my current story forward. How would the characters I created get themselves out the situation I caused?

I caused a problem I couldn’t solve for IMAGINARY people!

I’m laughing at this right now as I type because it is funny. If I had this electronic brainstorm months ago, the book could have possibly been finished and in editing right now. Instead, my characters are stuck in a sticky situation that I’m about to write them out of. Yay for creativity restored!

So, I’m back.

Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!
