I’ve said nothing lately. I’ve written, more Dear Diary entries than anything else because I do still have a lot to say. There’s the current political situation that has me all tied up in knots. My oldest is off at college and that’s a tangle of all kinds of emotions. And there’s life on an island with a family of six that offers enough daily anecdotes to wallpaper my house. But, lately, putting the words out there feels hard. I don’t want to offend anyone with my left leaning views. I don’t want anyone to read too much into a story about my friends. And then the don’t wants pile up and, frankly, they get in the way.
My Facebook Author page emailed me and told me my “fans” want to hear from me. While I’m not certain that’s true(because really the only fans I have in my life are trying to blow wildfire smoke out of my bedroom), for the first time in quite a long time I feel like I’m ready to get my writing groove back on. And for the first time in like ever, my kids are on almost the same school schedule and I have a big chunk of time that in theory should allow me to workout, do house chores, and write books.
So, I guess I just want to tell you that I’m coming back…I’m slowly re-entering the writing life I hold in such high esteem. I’ll start small and continue to dream big. Who knows what will happen…but some pretty great things happened last time.
