Confession: Not in the Mood to Write About Writing

I have a confession to make.

I am not jazzed right now by the thought of writing about writing.

It’s not that I don’t want to write. I am burning with excitement about both my major writing projects right now, my Year in coffee-393836_1280Disney Movies blog and my Rapunzel novel. Then there are my ongoing routine bits of writing, such as daily Morning Pages, book reviews on Goodreads and Booklikes, and the Young Adult Catholics blog. And I find I just want to go to these mediums and SAY something, not come here and say something about saying something.

Every Monday, I get a reminder to update this blog. I was lucky that I had two writing-related book reviews to post for the first couple weeks of the year. Last week, I just let that reminder sit in my inbox haunting me, and decided to write my blog post about Bambi instead. This week, rather than quietly ignoring my obligation to this blog for another week, I decided to be upfront about where I am with it.

The truth is, the addition of another major writing project with this year has spread my writing energies a little too thin, and this is where I want to be writing least. So, this is where I will be writing less.

Going forward, I am going to be a less regimented about updating this blog on a weekly basis. But I hope you will continue to follow me on the other blogs that are still going strong.
