I know that I have been missing lately. Things have been a little crazy in all aspects of "real" life, so I really haven't thought about writing. What really scares me is that I REALLY have not thought about writing. It is very unlike me not even to compose stories in my head as I am driving to school. I guess, this could be called the"mother" of all writing blocks. I hope that I will get back into the groove very soon. I guess writing this blog today is a first step back towards my goal.
I also think that not qualifying for the writing contest really effected me. I am not a person used to failure, which makes it so much harder for me when it happens. Especially if I really believe in what I am doing and I really did believe in that story. Well, that is water under the bridge. I am planning to attend the local chapter of Romance Writers to surround myself with "people" like me. Maybe that will be just the thing that I need right now.
Did I mention that I have now finished all of the laundry in the house? I will be paying for it tonight when I am trying to teach undergrads at URI, but right now I feel a sense of accomplishment.
