It’s Time to Write

Filed Under: Mental Health

I figure the best way to get back into the swing of things with regards to blogging is just to do it.

I have no subject in my head – nothing I really want to talk about – but writing is a habit and when you get out of the habit it’s hard to get back in the habit. I know what I’m saying…I hope you do.

One of the problems with vowing to record the highs and lows of my moods is when I’m having a “low” period, I lack any and all desire to write anything. Kind of hard to record stuff when you’d rather do anything BUT write.

I took an informal break and my mom’s here right now. I pretty much stayed off the computer over the weekend and even though I still don’t want to write, I know it’s time.

So, I’m writing. Yay, me! I’m excited too.



  1. Last night, I was reading Ted Kooser and Steve Cox’s little gem of a book, Writing Brave and Free. They speak convincingly about the habit of writing, the exercise of it.

    Welcome back, and good luck!

    • I’ve always read that writing is a craft and that it’s something that you have to work at – just like anything else.

      I don’t think I ever really agreed with that until here recently since it’s always come so easily to me. This is just one of those times when things aren’t coming easily and I know I just gotta keep on truckin’. 😉

      Thanks for the book suggestion. I’m always on the lookout for good writing books.

  2. I hope you’re writing about the dream we talked about…

    Besides- I enjoy reading what you write. Why are you being stingy with your gift? Huh? I mean, how dare you??? It’s like wearing your seatbelt-if you don’t do it for yourself, do it for your kids. Well, if you don’t write for yourself, write for your Alana (Just humor me and pretend that’s a completely relevant jump)

    • Honey child, we have got to get you a Gravatar.com account. It’s driving me crazy that I can’t see your lovely face when you comment. :heart:

      And as far as that stupid ass dream, I think I’ll just write a post about it. I don’t think I have the intestinal fortitude within me to deal with trying to even write a short story about that.

  3. Only if you promise to photoshop me into perfection…

  4. Not feeling at all like writing myself lately, and yeah, it’s the whole “being down in the dumps” mindset. Hard for me to put things into a blog when I don’t even feel much like logging on to begin with.
