Something that is returning in me is my desire to write.
I just want to write and write and write.
I think school and uni kind of pummelled my love of writing out of me. As much as I loved studying theology, 3000 word essays kind of got a bit tiring after awhile.
Oh word count button, how I loved thee.
For those of you who are currently studying, I hear you, I remember.
I loved writing as a kid and I have always kept a journal but I have only written two stories since my children were born; their birth stories, both a way to record the event and reflect on the experience.
It is time to write some more!
As for blogs, I have enjoyed a few on and off, a handful that have interested me for a period. Somewhere along the line they dropped off. I just stopped checking.
One blogger who has charmed me of late is Leonie Dawson.
She has a great way with words that is inspiring, down to earth and amazingly creative. From her free e-book, "Blogging and Biz', I felt inspired again to write. I whipped up this website and wrote my first post in two nights.
It felt great but it couldn't be perfect. How could it be?
In a full life I have only a limited amount of free time, I could edit and edit and still not be happy with it grammatically...and I'd go to sleep late and wake early for my little ones with my cranky pants on, not my happy pants!
So, sure, I'd like to present something perfect for you. I'll have my handy proof reader and editor just check it over for me while I get my child another sandwich, change a nappy, feed the cat and think about what I'm making for tea.
I will do the best I can :-)
