Well! Lookit that, I made it! Was hoping I would have enough time once I got back from my road trip to do an IWSG post.
If you'd like to know more about the IWSG, you can find information with the man who started it all, Alex J. Cavanaugh. We post our insecurities, or our advice to those with insecurities, the first Wednesday of every month. Let me tell ya, the end of 2013, I NEEDED these posts.
However, my road trip with my husband and sister-in-law down to Arizona was most inspiring.
I've got goals, again, people! While a lot of them won't include writing, I am trying to get back into the craftier side of my life.
No. I'm not selling my skills as an assassin.... although...
No. No, that's not what I mean by craftier. Tempting, mind you. But I'm more into jewelry making and stuff like that. I'm also looking into quilting. I've wanted to quilt for some time, but never had the time or funds. Well, time, I have plenty of!
I've also had several book/story ideas over the last couple months. The thing I need to do now, is implement them and get writing. I'm so close to being done with book two, that I don't want to begin something new until I've got that complete and have book three waiting in the wings. So that means, writing out these seriously long synopsis es (synopsi?) and flesh them out later. But at least I have several things to keep me occupied if I get stuck on one, I can flip over to another.
Wow. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to have a purpose again. To know what it is I want to do with my life. I had a bit of a mid-life crisis, there people. Scary crap, I tell you what.
So I suppose, this is where I give you advice. Even if you feel you've lost your way, strayed from the path, or anything like that, it's okay to take the time you need to re-evaluate things. Figure out yourself before you can figure out anything else.
Thanks for all of you who sat here and supported me, listened to my whining (!) and gave me the encouragement I needed. I can't say thank you enough. But thank you!!
