Wow. What Happened to Me these Last Few Months?

Writer's Fuel

Honestly? I do not know.  I was getting up each morning and writing first thing – on both my blogs – without fail. Then, suddenly I stopped.  I keep saying I am going to get back to it and then I don’t.  My writing in GENERAL has suffered greatly.  Same thing with my running.  I’ve been running less and less and now I need to really push to get myself back to where I was.

The thing is I MUST do better.  I don’t really understand it.  I have always loved writing.  It is my refuge.  It is what I am good at and what I enjoy.  But I don’t commit to it as I should.  Part of it is having a young child in the house.  I feel torn so much of the time and guilty when I sit down to write that I should really be doing something with them all the time.  I need to schedule my time better.  I need to figure out a way to make it all work.

This year started out with such high energy and then somewhere along the way – around late March, I lost it.  I need to reclaim it.  I need to actually DO that rather than prattle on and on about it.

So here I am.  Back at the starting line yet again.  I’m armed with a jug of my “writer’s gasoline” and ready to throw some fuel on the smoldering embers of creativity and commitment fighting to stay alive within me.

Happy week!!

  1. Hey Tracey,

    This happens, with child or without writing suddenly slips on the priority list and things come up and before you know it life takes off and you have o scramble to reason why.

    You’ll get back to it, you’re a wonderful mom so don’t feel guilty. Just think of it as self-care.


  2. Hey Aisley! Thanks for the kind words. How have you been! Feels like it has been a loooong time since we chatted!
