I haven’t been writing lately. Yes. I admit it. But, maybe admitting it is half the battle of getting past it and through it, hence the blogging. I don’t know. I think if I allowed myself time to wallow, I’d find myself tiptoeing dangerously near Depression. Death and Sickness don’t necessarily invite Depression to hang out with them, he’s more of a working acquaintance. He likes to invite himself over. He’s a deadbeat friend. He never contributes anything useful. He won’t even bring along a bag of chips!
I’m not sure how to avoid Depression completely, other than to keep busy, especially with things that bring joy and beauty. “Sorry I didn’t get your call, Depression. I must have been outside, snapping pics, or something.”
A few of my characters were hanging around in my dreams last night. Not my vampires, my faeries from 2011’s NaNoWriMo. They started popping into my thoughts around mid-December and have been nudging and prodding me to work on SOMETHING, anything, ever since. Very strange! These characters aren’t real, but that doesn’t stop them from hanging out during my dreamtime, poking at me to “keep moving forward.” I think they are right. How can you go wrong listening to imaginary dream faeries…right? OK. Don’t answer that! LOL
Have a great day!
