All work and no play....

Has it really been so long since I've updated? Well, it makes sense. There's been a lot going on in my personal life these days, and the writing I do for work has been taking priority over other writing.

I love my job. I really, really do. I'm using my degree every day, getting paid well for it, and I even get to be at home with Bean all day!

I just wish I had an extra hour a day to work on non-work writing. I know, I know. I need to make time. And I'm working on that. But with work and the other things going on my life (which you can read about here and here), I've simply had to take a brief break from writing.

I'm going to get back to it just as soon as I can, believe me. I don't like not writing. And I feel it if it's been too long. I'm a writer. I have to write. When I don't, I feel incomplete, no matter what else is going on in my life.

I'm still not planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year (especially if Hubby and I are moving in December rather than October), but I am going to try and make a little time here and there for writing. I have an idea that's keeping me up at night (and invading my dreams when I do sleep), so I know I need to at least brainstorm or outline or something.

I suppose wanting to write and not having time is better than having time to write and not knowing what to say. At least, that's what I'm telling myself.


  1. You'll find time for writing, never fear! Even if it takes awhile. And you'll find that you can jump right back in like you'd never left. Writers who know their craft never lose their touch, and you, my dearest heart sister, know your craft!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, heart sister! You always know just what to say! ::hugs::


Add a little caffeine to my life...
