I was back…and then I disappeared again. I had a big health scare in the family. (The past two weeks have been crazy.) Everything seems to be on a good path now. *thumbs up*
But now I’m back. I pinky swear promise. Next week it’s back to our regularly scheduled program of tips and tutorials and prompts (oh my!). I’m also working on a new short story, too, so that’s pretty exciting.
My library/study, where I stare at the screen or paper and wait for the “magic” to happen.
I’ve been away for a couple weeks. Sorry about that. I had been worrying about a job interview I had and, maybe more than that, I got discouraged again. (Seems to happen a lot lately…)
I’m trying to force myself to ignore the negative voices in my head. You know which ones I’m talking about: the ones constantly telling you you’re no good and won’t amount to anything. I think we all have those.
In the same vein, I’m trying to get back to my roots, so to speak. It’s my dream to “save people” with my stories, yes, but hell, I just like writing. So, I’m still working on my short stories for my future collection, but I’m being cognizant of how awesome it feels to write them for me.
I’ve found some writers groups in my area. I have mixed feelings about the discovery. I’m totally stoked on one hand and can’t wait to check them out; on the other hand, I’m terrified I’m not good enough and everyone will laugh at me. (I have a lot of self doubt.) Gotta get my courage up.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I haven’t disappeared. I’m back with tutorials and tips, and maybe some writing, too. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything.
