If I were to create a common phrase for my blog, it would be, “Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve written a post.” It’s definitely the single most popular phrase here because WOW it has been a long time since I wrote a post! Like always, life got in the way. I was returning to my old job, moving back home, and planning a wedding. Writing took a backseat to everything else.
Then the entire world stopped, and like everyone else, I was completely numb. The thought of writing filled me with anxiety, and the last thing I needed was more anxiety. I also felt that there was no need for my blog. My blog posts usually fall into two categories: either it’s updates on what’s going on with my life, or I’m sarcastically bitching about trivial things. Well, since March, my life has been an endless stream of sameness. There’s nothing to update. And bitching about trivial things during this time is not only annoying but also incredibly tone-deaf.
A million blog posts have run through my head late at night like they always do. But by the time morning rolls around, I’ve either completely lost most of what I wanted to write or realized that it wasn’t nearly as profound as my half-awake brain thought.
But alas, here I am once again writing a post after a long ass time. I miss my blog. I miss writing. I miss you guys. And right now, there are too many things in life that I miss and have no way of getting back. At least writing is something I have control over. Something I can do safely with no fear I’ll be getting myself or someone else I love sick. So here’s to more writing!
I hope everyone is safe and doing well!
Welcome back! If you’re looking for ideas that could be fun, here’s one you could try. https://billswritingplace.wordpress.com/2020/05/07/imagining-the-end-of-quarantine/
Thanks! And thanks for the suggestion. Sometimes I need some push when it comes to writing.
We have all fallen by the way side a bit. March was….well….March. April was a time where we slowly go use to things and now with May I’m still not sure we know what exactly is going on. Summer will be interesting, to say the least.
This whole year is going to be interesting. Sometimes I think I’ve processed what’s going on and then other times I cannot fathom how we got here.
Be well Liz!
Thank you! You too!
