I Miss Writing

This past week has been completely nuts! I haven't been able to sit down for long, much less had the time and energy to write like I normally do. My word counts for Monday through Saturday of this past week certainly reflect that, as does the fact I completely spaced my blog for the first time in a while.

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?

  1. Yes. It's hard to write as much as I want when so many busy things are demanding my time. Plus, when I DO sit down to write, the push to keep up with emails/blog/facebook sucks at the time. Necessary evils, eh?

    Someone very wise once told me, "Consider the 'cup runneth over' scenario. It's messy!"

    That's where we are. Cups running over--but very blessed.
