Begin Again

It scared me to stop writing for almost two weeks. Except, I didn’t. I stopped blogging. Words though, surprised me by percolating up in the middle of the nights and first thing in the mornings, and the good news is that I wrote three essays over the break. Two are spoken for, (which I’ll tell you about later.) The other I feel good enough about to start sending out, after final edits. The notebook at my bedside is filled with fragmented sentences that will lead to other pieces and gives me confidence that I haven’t dried up. So back to the blogging schedule, right? Well, almost right.

The cheese shop is closed today, so with a quiet house and this unexpected time off, I promised myself that I’d work on my long term writing project. As a result, this post will be brief.

No New Years resolutions for me—except to drink my coffee without sugar—and to just keep plugging.

Welcome to 2011 and Happy New Year all.

Keep on plugging - sounds divine to me...

Jon Paul said...

I've a few resolutions this year, but none writing-related. "Keep plugging" is among the best advice going, right up there with "keep breathing." :)

Looking forward to hearing more about your various projects, and Happy New Year to you too!

A writer always has to write - something anyway! Good stuff on those essays.

Great news that the writing is flowing. This is a wonderful start to the new year.

Sounds like a good plan! I read your articles re: adoption. I am adopted. I also met my birth parents 30 years ago. I remember the first time we met...the nausea that hit me when I looked into a reflection of myself. For the first time, I looked like I belonged to a family. A very strange feeling, and should mean little comparitively. But it didn't.

Good job! And as you say, "Keep plugging."

Of course you have been missed, but I am glad that your writing energy has merely been redirected.

Just keep plugging- sounds good to me.
Happy New Year my friend :)

My writing is flowing too, Liza. Isn't it a great feeling? :)

And coming over for coffee, no sugar, that's how I roll. :) Congrats on getting the writing time in. Happy New Year.

I slowed down with blogging, too, over the holidays.

Nice to see you back! Have a great new year!!
