Sunday Summary – Life Got Busy Edition

I mulled over some ideas, I drafted a couple of posts, I had the best of intentions… I promise! But transitioning from a blissful two-week holiday break and plenty of time to myself to the busy-ness of my regular schedule proved to be a bit of a shock to the system… and without a commitment to NaBloPoMo to keep me diligently posting every day, I’m afraid writing – and my blog – took a back seat to living life (and trying to catch up on sleep!).

Unfortunately this coming week doesn’t promise to be a whole lot better, schedule-wise, as I have several irons in the fire including the startup of Italian classes (Level 2!)… but I’ll do my best over the next few weeks to settle into a routine that includes writing and tending to my blog.

Thank you for sticking with me!

    Dawn, thanks for the link to the magic crochet ring. As a relative newcomer to crochet, I haven’t done much work in the round yet (I’ve just learned to make granny squares), but I’ll definitely try this. And great pictures again, as usual. I especially love the water glass, with its reflections and distortions.

    I’ve read too many writing ‘how-to’ books to count. All of them have different interesting ideas and various bits of advice, but it seems that most of them agree on at least one thing: in order to become a writer, you must have a writing schedule. Whenever I read this, the first thought on my mind is “easier said than done.” Even though it can sometimes be a challenge, it’s a good idea. I wrote my first novella without a schedule, but it took me almost 3 years (with huge gaps when I didn’t write) to finish. You may be doing perfectly well without a schedule, and that’s fine. A schedule isn’t mandatory, but it does help a tremendous amount.
