[NOTE: This is a free writing exercise as explained here.]
Life has been throwing me some serious curveballs lately which is one reason I haven’t been blogging as planned.
I had been really excited about doing my Write 15 blogs, but then my laptop died. Like DEAD DEAD! I have no idea what’s wrong with it and I don’t currently have the money to fix or replace it.
I do have access to my husband’s laptop (which might be limited now considering I tripped over the cord last night, knocked it off the chair, and broke part of it). Anyone else want me tending to their expensive electronic devices?
Besides my laptop disaster, I’ve also been dealing with a massive change in my work environment. It has been extremely uncomfortable and stressful for weeks now. I’m hoping it all evens out soon because I definitely don’t need the added burden of unemployment right now.
Home life has also had some issues lately. While I would love to vent about the sheer craziness of it all, a large portion of this has to do with my children and I do not have their permission to share the details. What I can say is there have been hospitalizations, a lot of confusion, and buckets of tears. I’d like to believe we are on the mend now, but only time will tell.
Basically, life has simply been too screwed up to write about and that put a halt on Write 15. Of course, the timer has been set for this post because it’s something I still want to do.
I will be continuing Write 15 in July, but I’m not necessarily going to do one daily. I will aim for 3-4 each week and see how that goes.
I am just trying to force myself to write more and I believe it will work. I want to find a way to tap back into my creative side, and I have always loved to write. Hopefully, in July, I’ll have the chance to move beyond these journal-style blogs and share other types of writing with [time’s up].
