The months do sure roll by don't they? June already and the first of the month means the writing blogosphere tackles those writerly insecurities that never seem far away for most of us. Saying that though, I haven't got anything new to add this month. Yes, I've got the usual doubts chasing each other around my head but I am coping with them. Maybe it's because things have been busy in my daily life that I have been able to keep them under control. I've got a novel and a short story out on submission and a germ of a new idea floating around, so of course I think about these a lot, but I have had to spend time recently on tackling the garden and running around after family, add that to work and the usual domestic chores and it is clear to see where my time and energy has been focused.
However, I do want to nurture that new idea and see if I can start putting some flesh on it. I am a happier person when I have a writing project, it's when I truly feel like 'me.' Even hubs told me I need to write. . . so he can tell the difference when I'm not!
So, time to sharpen that pencil and grab a notebook. . . there are new stories and characters to create.
Do you feel different when you haven't got a writing project on the go or do you enjoy the break from writing?
Thanks for stopping by.
