I've been amazed by just how much I've missed it. (My body isn't real happy about the lack of down time either.) I hadn't realized just how much I thrive on my ability to spend two or more hours a day at the keyboard if I want and pour out the ideas that seem to constantly stream through my head. I've been so tired that ideas have been in rather short supply though, so even if I had time to write as much as I usually do, the mental energy hasn't been there.
Thankfully, I made my 50K goal for NaNoWriMo earlier in the week, thanks to a tremendous push to get it done since I knew life was about to get like this. However, I'd really like to get that book completely written this month. Probably not going to happen unless I really get moving once I have the hours and mental energy again. We'll see how that goes.
I know what comes next in my book, but the words just aren't there right now even if the hours were. HOPEFULLY that will change in a couple more days. I really want to get back to writing.
What about you? Do you miss writing when life pulls you in different directions?
