I may very well be biting off more than I can chew. I’ve said for the life of this blog and several others that I am very intimate with a cosmic kick me sign that’s firmly attached (apparently) to my back. Yet here I am, typing away in this white box.
When last I left this little slice of Internet heaven, my husband and I were eyeball-deep in trying to solve our infertility problems. Little did we know that, thanks to IVF treatment, we would be christened official parents-to-be a mere month and some change later. Right on our due date, our little girl arrived safe and sound. You can read all about our journey and about her in the blog I started for her — The Story of Leanbh D.
I’ve also taken a big step as a wannabe writer. I finally got off my butt and self-published my first successfully completed (and edited/revised) NaNoWriMo novel. In an effort to encourage myself to keep on keepin’ on, I started a blog/repository — Just Another Wannabe Writer.
I also got the wild hair up my butt to start photo blogging my MIL’s farm and all the effort we’re putting in to making it a potential sustainable CSA — Farm Girl In Training.
Today, I updated the farm and writer blogs. Once we get the pix back from a photo shoot we did earlier this week, I’ll update the baby’s blog.
Meanwhile, I intend to use this space to babble about things that don’t fit in to any of the other blogs. No guarantees that this will be on a regular basis. I’ve missed writing for the sheer purpose of enjoying getting my ideas out and improve a skill I think I’ve let moulder a little too long.
This feels good, like stretching after a long and much-needed nap. This blog in particular has never been too far from my mind. Like re-teaching yourself to do a long-forgotten task, I’m anxious to get back into the writerly swing of things and finally be able to say that yes, I am a writer… wanna see? I will be making content/aesthetic changes to the blog over the next however long but regardless of how the blog looks, I will start writing again.
And that’s a promise.
