Long time no see...

I haven't been blogging very much. I don't know why. I keep thinking of things that I want to write about but then time slips away like a bandit with a bag of gold. It is like I can't hold a thought when my fingers are on the keyboard. I find this to be most frustrating. I have many friends who are writers who have the discipline to sit down and make themselves write every day no matter what. In fact, one such friend Mercedes Murdock Yardley writes, edits and is a slush reader for a magazine while caring for three young children, being a wife, having a very active role in her church and being engaged as a mentor for other writers. Good grief, I can't semi-manage a household, sell a little on eBay and maintain a blog. Jamie DeBree, another writing friend of mine, give great information on organization, time management and production. I read her words and take them to heart but yet...I flounder in the face of the real world and my seeming inability to write the words down.

Really, I cannot tell you the wonderful stories that have come to my mind over the past several days. Of course, they are never present when it is time to write. I feel so lost at times. I disappoint myself.

Let me clarify that I am not kicking an old dog while she is down I am just talking about what I see, experience and feel. I know that when my groove gets going that I will at least manage to do a fair to middling job with my blog and to me, that is what is important. I write for myself. Oh, it would be nice to finish my book. I totally love the book but even if it never gets finished and published I know that I have gotten those words written down and I totally love them. That is a huge accomplishment for me. I am happy with what I have achieved with the book. It works for me.

I will make a sincere effort to write in my blog more often. It is important to me. I realize that someday my blog will be gone. It is an impermanent entity but for now it lives and breathes. This makes me happy. It is my soul flowing freely across the screen. Who can ask for anything more?
