and that, of course, is only a half lie.
i have been reading some really great books at work lately (needful things, the time traveler's wife, on writing, mary lavalle...) so i haven't had the interest in writing that i usually do. in addition, i didn't get my computer back yesterday because my grandparent's cancelled grandpa's b-day party on sun because he was sick. so my dad didn't take it there and i am hovering over depression at still being seperated from dear Elenore.
and at home i have been gearing up for the art fair that is going on next month so i am spending more of my time sewing and crafting than i am writing. But that is not a big deal in any sense of the word. as a 'woman of many talents' as the guy on the phone from my college said when i told him why i wasn't using my degree for anything worth speaking of, i jump from one thing to another, but i will always come back to writing.
and just because i'm not hand writing, does not mean i have stopped brain-writing. i've been just letting the little garden of inspiration grow for the time being, letting the epipahnies get a bit bigger before i go stomping through to pick them. sure, the weeds are growing too, but i can always tell a weed from a real literary plant. or so i like to think.
it is wednesday, so i think i am going to go in search of a writing prompt i can do. it hasn't occured in a few weeks like i so very much swore it would. mostly i did that in order to keep myself productive. i had a fear that i would start this blog and then just disappear. But i have been keeping myself in motion in one area or another pretty easily these days. especially after i finished cleaning the craft room.
plus!? i'm 6 pounds from my next weight goal. As of this morning i have lost 19 pounds since thanksgiving. which is sort of a long time, but i'm doing it slowly and i have weeks where i don't give a crap. my goal is 175 by september when we go to Vegas, and at this rate i will most definitely get there. I really love putting on the shirts again that i had stashed in the 'too fat to wear' pile.
anyhow. i may be back later today, or maybe early afternoon tomorrow with a writing prompt. until then...
