Hello all.I didn't realize it had been so long between posts. Thanks for all the congratulations on baby girl (who remains nameless, so far. We usually don't pick a name until after we meet the kid.) We've passed the halfway mark with this pregnancy. I'm finally not wanting to toss my figurative cookies all the time. (Which is really, really good.) And I've been super busy with family, working, day trips, house work, and all the other stuff that piles up in the day.
I haven't had (or made) much time for writing in the last several months. It makes me wonder if I really am a writer. I've learned something new about the process again. It's kind of a use it or lose it sort of venture. When I'm writing, new shiny ideas come all the time. When I'm not, they are few and far between. And I miss them. How I miss them.
Sometimes, I look at what is going on in the blogging world around me and feel disconnected or disingenuous or some other word that starts with dis. I want to get back into the writing, but am at a loss for time and (to a lesser extent) desire right now. I keep passing through all these different options for making changes in some way, but only one seems really fun, so I might try it. And it would get my hand in again.
On Monday, I will post, either with an inspiration or looking for one. (I'll call it Monday's Muse! How alliterative.) On Friday, I'll post a piece of flash fiction based on whatever the inspiration was on Monday. (Flash Fiction Fridays! Yay!) We'll give it a try and see where it goes. If you want to participate, you are sure welcome to. And who knows. It might lead to some new ideas. Let me know what you think!
