I apologize for not blogging in awhile. One day runs into the next and before you know it, a month has passed.
I need to get better about blogging at least once a week. I have been writing a lot, just not blogging.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned I’m working on a novel.
It all began last October when I decided to participate in NanoWriMo without ever writing a piece of fiction in my life. I know it sounds crazy. It was hard, but I felt the most alive.
I am glad I pushed through the fear and took the dive, because I’ve discovered I enjoy writing fiction.
Thus, my focus has been more on my novel and less on blogging.
I began this blog a couple of years ago with the focus on book reviews. I still enjoy writing book reviews, however, recently my reading has been exclusive to research.
I’m learning a great deal about the discipline and art of fiction writing. It’s been an interesting journey to say the least.
I just wanted to take the time to update you, since I didn’t want any of you to think I fell off the map.
There has been so much on my heart I’ve wanted to share. But each time I tried, I would choke up and not write anything at all.
For me, good writing is like eating a gourmet meal and not fast food. I want to be able to write something of substance and quality; and not regurgitate the same ole, same ole.
I want to thank all of you for hanging in there with me as I find my way on this writing journey.
Do you struggle to write when your heart and mind are full? What do you do to push past it?
