So I missed the IWSG post yesterday... I really wanted to post. I got so caught up in everything, I forgot! But, it was a really good topic and I wrote a post for it before realizing I had missed it again. So here is my LATE post.

How do major life events affect your writing? Has writing ever helped you through something?

Oh, man...

It doesn't even have to be a major life event to affect my writing. Sometimes, minor ones derail the best laid plans.

I'll be sharing some pictures later this month of all the remodeling we've been working on in our new place. I've had all my craft stuff in storage and I'm using the work computer to post blogs because I don't have internet at my home. And I've used up all my hotspot data.

It's been a bummer the last few months. But this time around, this is when writing got me through it. I don't need internet to write, unless I need to research something, and then I use my phone. Thank goodness for that!

Crafting is my go to for relaxation and therapy. Writing helped fill that void when I couldn't do any crafts. I never thought that writing would do that for me. I felt like I always had to be "in the mood" to write. But, it's creating. And that is what crafting is. Writing is a craft and therefore, my therapy. So I am very thankful to have had the means to write during this life event. Whether it was a notebook and pen, my tablet or work computer, it helped me get through this.

And next week, I'll have Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc as a GUEST BLOGGER! Woohoo!

And tune in here Friday! I'll be doing a cover reveal for one of our Midian Entertainment authors, David Rex Bonnewell!

No worries on a day late.
Writing is crafting - well said.

Writing is definitely my therapy as well. Crafting used to be but I rarely make time for it these days. Hope you're able to get your stuff out of storage soon, but in the meantime, keep writing!
