as i read through blog post blurbs on google reader, i came across one that talked about how writing a first draft sucks. here was my reply:
i love first drafts. 2nd drafts are the ones that suck for me. but i'm finding that not writing sucks even more. haven't had a chance or the creative where-with-all to get to anything that even resembles a story.
having not written in months, i sorely miss the creative process and hope that in the next month or two i can get back to it. the weariness of all we've had to do to get our house ready to sell is getting old. on top of that, my mother in law passed away yesterday (expected but still hard) and we have 2 memorial services to attend this week, both of them two hours away. writing is one way i know to combat the weariness. not writing feels like another kind of death to me.
i know that sounds overly dramatic, but for some of us, writing is like breathing.
yes, there are things that are much worse. yes, other people go through things like this all the time and endure. yes, i know i can rely on God for what i need, but i forget.
prayers and positive thoughts would be appreciated.
