I’m writing again!
I’d been thinking about it seriously for a few weeks.
Since last year, when I was churning out quite a lot of flash fiction, I’ve had a lull – maybe it was a confidence thing. I had a couple of pieces published towards the end of 2014 – and it was the first time I’d ever shown anyone my work. It was a little scary. What if I couldn’t ever write anything good again?
So I became distracted by other projects, and I also got pregnant (!). However, since then, I’ve had a major clearing out of projects and to-dos. It was primarily to make sure I wouldn’t be overwhelmed with stuff once this new baby arrives (I’m due at the end of November), but as is often the case with a good declutter, once I’d made space in my life, I found there was one thing I kept thinking about filling it with again. The one thing I always come back to.
So that novel I intended to write at the beginning of the year, and my resolution to write 50,000 words of it, might just be on the cards after all.
