Writing is Hard

Why is it that I want to write here, but can’t seem to do it with any kind of consistency?

If I’m being honest, it’s because I don’t feel I have anything of value to say. I’m a (mostly) stay-at-home mom. I have three kids, but two of them are adults and no longer live with us. I simply don’t think I’m that interesting.

Many things have changed since I started writing here eons ago. So in an effort to catch you up, let’s go back to the basics.

In order to reintroduce myself (which is hilarious because I’m guessing anyone that reads this already knows me) I’m going to post 10 facts about me.

  1. I’m a wife, a mother, a friend.
  2. I’m currently a second term PTA President at my youngest child’s elementary school.
  3. I have a very small, part time job at the elementary school.
  4. I’m a super proud MoM, meaning my middle “kid” is in the military.
  5. My oldest child is turning 21 this year.
  6. I have a ridiculous fan-girl love for Jared Leto. It’s embarrassing really.
  7. While I very much enjoy adult novels, I have a growing love of the Young Adult genre as well. I’m a fan of the Lightening Thief series. I loved The Maze Runner and plan to read the others. The Scorch Trials is sitting here waiting to be read. (Not just yet TST, I’ll get to you soon). I read the Hunger Games trilogy years ago. I love Harry Potter. I could go on, but you get the idea.
  8. I’m an introvert through and through.
  9. Penguins used to be my favorite animal. Now? Not so much. I don’t know what happened other than I guess I grew out of it. I do love me some hedgehogs and owls though.
  10. I love the Christmas season. I can’t stand decorating for it. Every year I say something along the lines of, “Let’s just skip it this year,” and everyone freaks the heck out.

There you have it. Hopefully I’ll be back soon. My husband and I are thinking of taking on a blogging challenge. I don’t think it’ll be a daily challenge, but maybe weekly? Anyhow, see you soon.

I'm a wife, mother of three and stay at home mom. I consider myself blessed to have such a wonderful network of friends and family around me. It may not be large, but it's an important one. I look forward to sharing my stories with you, and it is my hope that I can bring a smile to your heart as you read.

    Glad to see you writing again. Sometimes it just takes a little practice before things get rattled out of our skulls and work their way down our arms, out our fingers and onto the screen.

    I started trying to write about my dreams first thing in the morning as a creative writing exercise a few years ago. It helped me become more descriptive in my writing.

    There came a point in my life where the flood gates broke loose and a few years worth of writers block disappeared and I could write forever and a day (again) and suddenly all that practice trying to describe my dreams had paid off.

    So as you find your muse, your direction, you might find something to focus your attention on and simply try to write to describe something a bit every day or most days, and then see where things go from there.

    (side note)

    I now detest talking about politics or religion or the latest controversy over this that or the other thing. I used to like writing, blogging, debating about this type of stuff, but now see it as just a total negative and I think something that fed or built up my writer’s block in the first place.

    You might try to identify the things that just make you want to walk away from your writing and then avoid those things!

    🙂

    Focus on the things that are Important to you, have meaning, and get your brain revved up.
