It Just Occurred to Me

Now that all my followers are probably gone from my blogging site, let me try to write again.

It’s been awhile. And I’m not really sure why, and I have no good reason for that either. There have been some things I have noticed since growing up (yes, I have considered myself growing up the past few years- and possibly peaking… but we’ll see).

I’ve been doing a lot of “soul searching”- to try to find myself and what I want and need to do. At one point, I wanted to launch into a full on website, which I found too stressful and the pressure left me with no creative energy to write. I guess you could compare that to when you work to do the things you love and end up hating it one day? That argument can go many ways, it’s just a feeling.

My last post is a year ago now. I could beat myself up for not keeping up with this, but I have also recently learned that I should be nicer to myself. How about I consider it as a conversation with my readers (if there are any)?

Some things I’ve been working on half-assed lately:

  • Writing a book- “Traveling for Introverts”… which is me in a nutshell. It’s been horrible, so I wouldn’t expect much. I did read Steven King’s memoir On Writing, to draw inspiration, and realize I’ll never be as good as him. So why try? … just kidding, I’ll try a bit.
  • Reading – to fulfill a contract I set up with my sister to be better this year. There’s more to the contract, which I’ll share later.
  • Learning code – something I used to enjoy, but suffered from indecision-itis… so I never pursued.

Probably no one read this. So… I’ll publish and get back to work.

  2. Hey Winta! Welcome back. I love the header image – it’s very comforting at the moment 🙂
    I think I need to watch an episode of Bake Off to heal after weeks of craziness.
    I want to read your book! Even just an unpolished sample of it – if you want a second opinion.
    Be kind to yourself.
