What to Do

Posted on: January 23, 2017

The first thing one needs to do (if one wants to do anything) is to start…

13239297_10208935359048457_5614473794801101084_nThis is me starting…

…yet again.

It’s not a grand plan of attack yet.  It’s a baby step.  I don’t know where I’m going yet.  It involves writing and stories—I know that much at the moment.  It also involves trimming some things.

 

More on that later…

For today, just a quick “Hi, I’m back.”

And a bit of an update…  I’m writing again.  *whew*  It was hard going for a while.  I suspect every year it’s still going to be a bit hard to maintain any writing momentum around the holidays.  This year I almost wished I could embrace the normal busy-ness that normally takes one during that time.  Hopefully next year, and the years that follow, will get easier, and I can stop thinking about the should’ves and could’ves and the people gone.

I can only honor them one way—be the best person I can be.  When I was with them, they made me feel like I was that best person…

We all go somewhere, someday.  If it is a real place, then…  it’ll be fun to say “Hi!  You were right!” to them.

Oh, and my daily wordcount via 750words: 1031 words

Baby steps are good! Glad to hear you’re writing again. 🙂

Thanks, Emily. Sometimes, it really is all we can do to start moving forward again

Good to see you back. The hard season does lighten some with time. Can’t promise it’ll ever be not-hard, but I can say it’s possible to find ways to live with and honor the painful times, and the loved ones gone.

And, if it helps –

“I am, and always will be, your friend.”

I know. It’s hardest, I think, because it was so many, so soon… and I was swamped with so many other things. Or let myself be swamped. Not sure which… which of course adds to the problem. One of these days…
