Holiday Randomness

December 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Lately I have been doing more reading than writing. That block I was experiencing is gone. I think my problem was that I had been writing in a journal almost daily, and then I stopped. When I stopped I noticed that my ideas stopped flowing. So I decided to start writing in my journal again.

My book that I’m writing is getting a major overhaul. Like I think I’ve said before, the more I learn, the more things I feel I have to change.

I have been a little distracted by several things lately though. First the holidays and everything that goes along with that. Plus battling viruses on my laptop. Which scared me, because at that time I had not backed up my work. Then my father passed away a few days after Thanksgiving. Which resulted in me learning that I have another sister. So as you can imagine writing hasn’t been my top priority lately.
However, as soon as I felt that I didn’t have time, new ideas for my book start pouring in. As a result of that, my Blackberry (which I’m writing this post on) is overloaded with my work. Work that I have yet to transfer to my laptop.
Last night was the first time in about a week that I sat for an extended period of time and just focused on writing.

This year has truly been a test for me (which I will cover in an end of the year post), but I really am happy that all my troubles this year led me to my true love of writing.

Happy holidays.
