I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.
— from The Salmon of Doubt, by Douglas Adams
Yeah, so . . . Hi. When blogging gets away from me, it really gets away from me. But I’m back. I’ve joined an online writing group and we’ve challenged ourselves to write — blogs mostly, but some will also do creative writing — every day in February. Of course, we set ourselves up for success by choosing the shortest month of the year! Go, Team!
I’m ready. I’ve really missed this space. Part of it is time – the longer commute means less time in the evenings, and the time I do have, David and I spend catching up on the DVR. The other part is space – we’re still settling into our house, even after six months here, and my computer has lived on the coffee table for all of that time. It’s not that comfortable to write there, so it’s not conducive to writing at all. But I finally got my desk set up in our office; it’s not totally done, but it’s good enough for now. Bonus that it’s not in either of the rooms with the TVs, so I can actually focus on one thing at a time.
Our writing group has daily prompts to be used if we feel like it, and I expect to use them, especially in the beginning while I’m getting back into the swing of things. Who knows – I may get crazy and post other stuff, too! Madness. I’m excited for the first prompt, and I hope you like what I have on tap. See you Friday morning!
