writing, I miss you!
Right now we're in a two-story house with a basement, but we'll be moving into a three bedroom apartment. It has been a full time job, practically, trying to decide what to take and what to get rid of. We've acquired quite a bit of stuff in our nearly 11 years of being married with children. I haven't been able to find time or brain power to write.
But I miss it.
The fact that I miss writing has surprised me. I was so tired of editing the same story over and over and over this last year that I was ready to give up on writing forever. I'm not cut out for this editing business, I'd decided. And good writing means good editing. So it must not be for me.
Unfortunately, my brain hasn't had time to convince my heart. The stories are still there, and I want to write them down. And I still want to edit. In fact, I can't stop thinking about it. Crazy, I know.
In a few months, when things settle down, we'll strike up our old friendship and see where things go from there. Maybe I'll fall in love with that over-edited story once again.
