I’m Back! November 13, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — A French American Life @ 6:03 pm

It was a long and unintended hiatus, and I apologize. I don’t even want to think about all the writing I have not gotten done in the last couple months! We’ve had a lot going on – three weddings and a funeral. Sounds like a good story…. Also, a trip to Egypt, changes in jobs for both my husband and me, several trips out of town. I realized recently that we’ve spent a grand total of 5 weekends in San Diego since June. Including a couple of prolonged international trips, where we weren’t around for the weekdays either. Some of it has been fun, some of it has been heartbreaking, some of it bittersweet. But now, I’m back.

My creative writing was put on the backburner, then neglected so much that it slipped off the stove and to the floor, between the wall and the oven. Now I’m having to rock and wiggle the oven out of the way, squeeze my arm in there and feel around through all of the dust bunnies and nasty sticky things, searching for my inspiration and discipline.

If this sounds like an entry full of excuses, that’s true.

It’s been a challenge to try to be creative with all these life events. The last thing I’ve wanted to do is work on my novels or write in my blog. I have gone through 3 journals though, so I haven’t completely neglected my need for the written word. It has simply served a different purpose.

But now, I’m back on track. Thanks for your patience.

    I think journal writing is awesome, but then that’s the only kind of writing I do anymore. Maybe you’ll find a new story that needs to be developed in all of those life events you’ve lived through lately. I guess that’s not exactly the same genre you’ve been working on, but you never know.
