It Hits Again

Well I've practically disappeared once again for a very long time...but I'm back. This last year was one of try busiest years of my life. I went through an amazing Montessori program and am now a licensed teacher, found an amazing teaching job at a wonderful school, I'm in the process if receiving my Master's of Education Degree, etc. just a lot. This summer I have done summer school but for the first time, in a very long time, I've traveled a ton. I've been to Disneyland, Boston and a lot of coastal towns, Idaho, and now will be going to San Diego in a week. I needed to re-fuel before the new school year begins. But on these journeys, I wrote. I left writing behind sadly and not because I wanted to, but because for the life of me I didn't have time. Not even free time to read. Serious problem right there! When I was in the small coastal towns with the beautiful lighthouses, I was hit once again with inspiration. So I went back to The One story I've been working in for two years. Sometimes I get so frustrated with it; sometimes I want to just throw it away and be done with it; but then I go on these trips and feel that inspiration and I almost want to hug the words. It's a comfort and I know it's something special. Maybe that's why it aggravates me so greatly... I want it to be perfect. But I realized I just need to finish it and write. Be me. The editing will come after. A lot of books have come out somewhat similar more and more with time. It makes me sad because I never was "following the trend," but then I know that this book is different. I haven't seen anything quite like it. That also hits me with that same inspiration.

Anyway, I'm back. I'll write when I can, that's my promise. What have you all been up to? What are you writing? What inspires you? I miss talking to you all. 

Take care!
