Writing - I need it.
I think I have stumbled onto something else that can help me feel better. Maybe I over analyze myself but I keep trying to see what is missing that is making me feel so out of it. I think maybe it’s because I haven’t written any fiction in a long time. I do have some stories in my head but I don’t seem to give myself time to write. And I think I need it.
Now this would come as a surprise to Nick because he sees me on the computer all the time. But I’m not writing. I’m puttering. I read blogs, comment, answer comments, email my friends, answering emails, check facebook – in fact everything but writing.
Writing is what got me started. I started writing fiction in my head before I was 10 – mind blogging – back before blogging had been invented. Stories have always run around in my head.
I think that goes a long way it keeping me centered on what is important in my marriage. It may be fiction but it keeps me in the right frame of mind. So I am trying to write more. I got a story half finished this weekend. But I need to organize my time and really spend an amount of time on my writing.
I think this would go a long way in reliving my work stress if I had some writing to do when I got home. So I’m going to try – we may have a new Fantasy Friday before long. Like I said it’s half finished. So don’t count on it right away but I do have several in my head.
I haven’t been doing my diet update the past several weeks but I haven’t given up. I’ll do one this week, good or bad I’ll do one – after I work on my story!
