Beginning Again

I love beginnings. There's excitement, adventure, and endless possibility. I have found something out about myself in the last year. I cannot live without hope. I am not the kind of person that despairs. I worry, get frustrated, weep, but hope is always a constant companion. I'm not sure that's always a good thing because the higher the flight, the greater the fall, right? Regardless, I cannot stop myself from hoping. Now it's time to hope I can get back into this blogging thing. I think it's time for another new beginning.

I do need/want to blog again, but I'm not promising regularity. You see, I'm still homeschooling my kids, which takes a lot of time. I'm in a new country, Macedonia, which demands exploration, of course, and I've been working hard on my novels again. I say again because sometimes life demands your attention and you can't do anything but give it. That's been my life since I got pregnant last July, moved here, and lost the baby the 27th of Dec. Writing just couldn't be a priority then.

Please, excuse the intermittent posts, but I would love the support of the writing community again as I start on round 2 of this blogging journey. (Or is this round 3, 4 or 5? Who's counting?)

Though this update is a bit lengthy, I will definitely hold to my position that normal posts will be brief. I hope to visit all of your blogs again soon! (Though give me time. I hear google reader doesn't exist anymore? What's a girl to do?)

  1. Use Feedle. It replaces Reader really well.

  2. Welcome back! Yes, try Feedly.
    And without hope, all is lost. So don't ever lose it.

  3. It's good to have hope, hope sustains us. Otherwise life is just a barren wasteland? Aren't we here to experience joy? Anyway, glad you're back, and I couldn't admire you more for homeschooling your kids :)

    1. Oh my goodness, I didn't mean to sound so down on hope. I'm grateful to learn that I can always hold onto it. It has just caused some trouble of late. lol

      Thank you!

  4. I don't blog as often as I mean to, either. But i do enjoy the blog community. Your priorities are right: children and novels. Write on.
    And thanks for following my Victorian Scribbles blog. I'm following this blog now.

  5. I completely understand. (I homeschooled my kids too. The last one is in his last year. I can't believe it's almost over.) There's a season to everything in life. In this season, your kids need you. That said, I'll be watching for your posts. :) I'm hoping you'll post photos of Macedonia--so cool.

    1. Mine are in first and third grade so we have a long way to go, but at the same time I know it will go all too fast.

      I can definitely post pictures. Once I re-learn how to use blogger, that is. ;)
