The Churning Brain

I’m not writing much these days except to take notes in church and post the odd blog entry. I’m not happy about it, but that’s the way it is for the time being. I didn’t even attempt NaNo this year because I knew it was nuts to consider writing 50K words in a month when I was working two jobs, having out of town guests for a week, and dealing with all the other things that daily life throws at you.

But . . .

The brain never stops churning.

I have jotted down several ideas for my current writing projects and come up with a few brilliant concepts for new stories. So technically, I have been writing. Right? Or at least I’ve been thinking about writing. Come on, a little encouragement here would help!

I long for the day when I don’t have to be anywhere at a specific time to do inventory or talk to the disgruntled customer or to change the shift schedule yet again. While I do enjoy both jobs I currently have, and they are paying the bills, I am usually too exhausted at the end of every day to do anything more than get my kitchen cleaned up after dinner and watch a little TV before I crash for the night. Writing doesn’t even cross my mind.

But soon, folks. Very soon.

The churning brain is still popping out ideas.

    Unlike you, I foolishly did attempt NaNo this year, but it was an epic fail. TBH, I should have known better than to have attempted it this year. But – I am thankful that I was a least able to finish one more chapter. Keep writing!
