I sent an email to family and friends telling them about some of the struggles I've been having. Got so much positive feedback, I wondered why I had waited so long.
I was moving furniture and stuff with family the other day and found a few 'bags' of paperwork. After the kids left, I pulled out a cd, some iced tea, and my reading glasses. :)
I can't even begin to tell you how appalled I was when I discovered unopened Christmas cards from 2014, wedding invitations, and a truckload of other important paperwork.
It made me realize I have not been functioning quite up to par as of a long time. This could explain my writer's block. I spoke with friends and have decided to stop using the calendar on my cell to keep track of things and get out my old handy-dandy notebook. This won't help if I squirrel away mail, but it should help in keeping track of my life. Not that it's that busy - but I guess it is.
Well, this has also spurred me on to get back to my writing. I feel justified having not written - if that makes any sense. It does to me. :)
I even sent off a draft of the 'new' Chapter 1 of Nothing But Blue Skies to the Skyline writers group. No expectations.
I must have 10,000 notebooks/journals lying around this house somewhere. I'm sure I'll find one to use.
Thanks for all your patience and for those who sent me Christmas cards - I have opened it now. Bless you!
