Hello there. Let’s talk about all things life and writing.
It’s been a while. The last couple of years have been rough, both in the small and large picture. The worldwide view has been interesting, to say the least. My writing life has had highs and lows. The lows have been quite low, and the highs, while few, have been good. But it’s time to get back to all things life and writing.
This blog has been on my mind for so much of the two years (or more) since I published a post. I’ve thought about and planned to restart my life online. Listening to the “experts” talk about having a single focus for a website, I’ve made charts and editorial calendars. I’ve thought about how to monetize and build a following. The one thing I’ve not really done is actually write posts.
What I Have Been Up To
What I have been up to is work. Just work. I’m not sure how much I’ve spoken about my work for the last four years, but I’ve worked from home, which is not as glamorous as it seems. Sure the commute is fabulous, but the co-workers argue. Most of them prefer their own online presence while I’m in the middle of a session. It can be a bit much.
Currently, I am working both online and in person. It’s just enough to complicate my life. It’s hard to get up and be somewhere on time and with all the proper undergarments on. It does help to fill my social meter.
I have been writing a bit, working on novels mostly. My main focus has been on a trilogy that began my first year of NaNoWriMo 8 or so years ago. At that time, it was a single novel. Somewhere in the past few years, I realized I was trying to do too much within a small space. The first of the three novels, Unlocking Magic (working title), is at a zero draft stage. Editing is difficult, so I’m avoiding it by working on the second book.
This space has been an important place for me to express myself. The interesting part is that when I finished that first novel, I celebrated by beginning this blog. And now, I am coming full circle.
The focus of this space will no longer be on one specific thing. My tagline has been ‘All Things Life and Writing’ since the beginning. Trying to only focus on a single subject has actually stalled all thoughts of writing.
When I began this blog, I wrote about so many things. Yes, there wasn’t a focus, but I was writing. And writing is what I am working to get back to again.
So, in saying that, I plan to write about my life and writing. Subjects may include:
*ADHD in women with late diagnosis
*Speaking my truths
I hope that you will join me on this journey. Whether I get a post out weekly or monthly, posts will come. Writing will get done. Life will happen.
That is where the best stories are.
Until next time, Angela.
