It’s been a while, a little more than two weeks to be exact. Unfortunately, I needed to focus my energy on a project other than writing. I am no closer to accomplishing that project than I was two months ago, but I have learned something in the process. I can’t put my writing to the back burner and forget about it. During my two weeks “off” of writing, I didn’t get that urge to write, but I did feel sort of empty.
I have always been annoyed when writers say they feel “lost” when they aren’t writing. That has never been the truth for me and it still isn’t. But now I understand it a bit better, though I don’t feel lost, but I did feel like I was betraying and abandoning my dreams. I realize I have a bad habit of putting my dreams on hold, especially when I am getting close to obtaining them, but not this time. I am back and don’t plan on taking any unnecessary breaks in the near future, even though that other project is very important. I am going to push forward and make time for writing. It is important to me. Even if I can only dedicate a few minutes a day, I am going to stay on track with publishing Dissonance by the end of the year and building my readership.
So, here is to starting over and getting back on track with my goals. I am back to blogging, commenting, social media, and writing. I hope you can forgive me for my absence.
