Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Let's Start Writing Again, Shall We?

Five minutes of unedited, stream of consciousness writing hosted by All Things Fadra.


Yep, I’ve been missing here for over a month. There are two reasons why, but it is mostly because I have not felt the ache to write. That's not exactly true and I will explain later. I used to write every day when I started this blog. The excitement was palpable. I couldn’t wait. Well, that was three and a half years ago.

I know the urge and the words ebb and flow. I’m patiently waiting for them to return in a documented form. The weird thing is, and maybe you do this too, I create posts, or morsels of them, in my head almost constantly almost daily. It actually feels I am writing. Mentally. And here, in my head, the words flow easily.

Yesterday, I Instagram stalked some blogger friends (I do follow them, so it wasn’t that creepy) who were attending Blogher. I have know idea where it is being held, but it looked like they were having a blast. They had cocktails in their hands! And I saw one of my hands down favorite writers/people. Kirsten from I immediately messaged her and she, of course, immediately got right back.

I told her I am happy because she is having a fabulous time. having fun and being recognized for her work. I also said, “I miss writing.”

She jumped on this comment immediately because she hasn’t been writing as regularly either and she proposed a pact. “Let’s start writing again. At least once a week.” Something like that. I agreed and it made me smile. I don’t know when I will start back but I think it will be after the summer. 

September 1st sounds like a good one, a start date, doesn’t it?

    1. In some ways, yes. In others, no. Willing to admit to my slacker-mess, though.

  2. Ah, needed to see this. If only to know I'm not the only one. :) Lovely to see you're back.

    1. Oh, thank you! Camaraderie is born when we don't feel alone. Let's do it, Jane! Thanks for coming back to see this slacker!

  3. We will write! September 1st sounds perfect to me. Also...thanks for the texts/ messages during BlogHer. I felt like you were there with me. You're a pretty special lady and I love calling you my friend.

  4. I totally understand how you feel! I feel like it's pretty easy to get burned out and, if you need to take a break, then take it! I recently cut back my number of posts per week because I was feeling more stressed than excited about writing...and that's helped :)

  5. I certainly agree to some points that you have discussed on this post. I appreciate that you have shared some reliable tips on this review.
