Ack! It happened again. My apologies. My mind is as fickle as the weather sometimes. I also haven’t been writing lately, so I haven’t had much to say on that front. I have been reading, but as you can see, I haven’t kept up with my monthly wrap-up posts.
Failures all around.
Unfortunately, I don’t foresee myself getting back on the writing horse anytime soon. I’m going back to work November 1st, and all my attention has been laser-focused on preparing for that. Mostly I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to do for childcare. This shouldn’t be so hard, but here we are. It’s ridiculous how expensive it is. Why should I go to work to pay someone $1,000 a month to raise my children? That’s an entire mortgage payment!
I’m going to end it there, before I get myself worked up. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I’m able to find a cheaper option.
I miss writing. It’s always this time of year, with NaNoWriMo looming on the horizon, that I feel the worst about my inconsistencies as a writer. I have the creativity and the talent, but none of the discipline writing requires. It makes me fear I’ll never finish a novel, or any writing piece longer than a short story–and I can barely finish those!
It’s so frustrating. I wish brain transplants were a thing. Since they aren’t, I should probably follow through on seeking out the therapy I’ve needed for a long time, but I can never make myself take that step. If only I was still of an age when my mother took care of all my medical business, then I’d have no choice!
